Networking with someone I partied with......?

Hey all,

Hope work or back to school is treating you all well.

I have a quick and rather silly question. I partied with a few bankers this summer, one of whom works at my dream firm. He had mentioned that he may be able to help hook me up for full-time, but we've barely kept in touch, and if we have, it was very informal. I am wondering if anyone has advice on how to approach him when asking if he could hook me up with a point of contact/pass my CV around the department.

Thanks in advance

That's a perfect connection. Approach him as a friend/buddy (relax) and you'll likely have the best results. You don't want to make anyone think you're desperate/nagging/pestering. In this case approach him as friends that respect each other equally.

That's my opinion anyway.

I'd email him and leave him with a phone number to contact me.

Dude, this is the perfect opportunity. Stay chill and just e-mail him more about his job and what he did to get the job. Ask him about the process at his firm and you're set.
