Hey everyone,

I am kinda confused if I should email my contact again or just let it go.

So I e-mail alumni at BB, there was no response for the initial e-mail and then I sent a follow up after two weeks and then I finally got the response. He responded and asked to set up a time for a call. Unfortunately, I was unable to respond him right away because I was at work and I replied after 3 hours. since that email, I haven't heard anything from the person, and I sent out the follow-up but no reply. He is a VP and I get it that he must be busy but should I send him another follow-up or just let it go.???

Any advice will be appreciated.

If you replied within 3 hours that is totally acceptable on your part. And generally speaking, following-up twice is never a good idea. Let it go and find another connection

Really? I've followed up twice and have gotten a lot of response after the second followup.

I say anything more than two followups could be excessive but two followups spread out about three weeks seems alright is it not?

I send out follow-up two weeks apart from the e-mail.
