Keeping in Touch
« on: Nov 26, 2013, 11:24 pm »
Over the summer I shadowed a professional touring SM. It was a great experience and from that moment I knew I wanted to work on a national tour. He told me if I had any questions just shoot him an email. It's been about six months and I couldn't think of any question and I still can't. But I don't want to lose this networking opportunity. So what I'm asking is what is the best way to keep in touch with an SM.

You can always send a note wishing them a happy TG/winter holiday and letting them know (briefly) that you have fond memories of your time with them, maybe how you've put into practice some of the things you learned while observing.

You might have to let this connection go cold . . . just saying "hi" seems a bit smarmy, and, he might have just said that as a "nice meeting" you kind of thing.
