Networking Introduction Email

Dear Ms. Kennedy:

Dr. Smith, professor of Environmental Studies at Stetson University, suggested that I contact you. He thought that you would be in an excellent position as an alumna to assist me with a career decision.


As an Environmental Studies student, I am exploring which career path to pursue. Water quality management, water resource planning, or hydrology all sound interesting to me at this point, but I would like to get your advice and insight as well as a better handle on the day-to-day activities of an environmentalist.


I will call you next week to see if we can arrange a brief meeting at your convenience. If you like to reach me before then, feel free to contact me at (phone) or (e-mail address). Thank you for considering my request.
