How a short email can go a long way…

How have you been lately? It’s been a week since we last got in touch. I’d love to know what you’ve been up to since we last spoke.

This is the kind of conversation we need to have once in a while. I think that everyone should send out an email to someone in their professional network they’ve lost touch with.

When you meet people, new ideas are created, and new doors open. Think about it: how many people have you met that have been introduced to you through people you’ve met in other walks of life? It’s easy to lose touch as we move forward in our careers. But let’s not forget that it’s the people along the way that have taken part in one way or another to who you are (in a working sense) today.

Social connections in the professional world is how progress is made. How many times have you felt great when someone thought to get back in touch with you?

Myself and the rest of the team at Somewhere believe that it’s important to connect people, because we are curious about the world and the people within. I’m in constant contact with mentors I’ve met in internships and networking events, including Andrew MacDougall and CBC news anchor Christine Birak, recently who I’ve been grateful for constant career advice. Somewhere CEO Peter recently connected with Michael Roderick, an old friend who runs ConnectorCon.

Staying connected is the best thing for us. Who will you get back in touch with?

If I haven’t heard from you in a while, please let me know how you’re doing. I love seeing every new Spark that keeps me and the Somewhere Team in the loop with all the great things that you are up to. Email me at zairah@somewhere.com or tweet @somewhere with hashtag #stayintouch.

Stay in touch!

Love always,
Zairah
