If you’re anything like me, you have been counting down to today since Fall Break. Well it’s finally here! As you head home to celebrate this time of thanksgiving, take time to relax and enjoy the holiday: great food, time with family, and an opportunity to give thanks.
While you’re thinking about who you are thankful for, keep in mind those who have helped you with your career development. This holiday season is a great time to reach out to mentors, internship supervisors, and others in your professional network to catch up and say thank you! Expressions of gratitude will make you stand out and perhaps even spark conversation about new endeavors. Keeping in touch with your professional network is a key aspect of preparing for your future career!
So, take a break from the food and fun to send a few quick notes out to remind past and present mentors that you are thankful for their help and support.
