Sample of Networking Thank You Email
Subject: Thank you for networking
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing this email to thank you for the support and guidance you have given me regarding my career. I must say that you taught me to look at journalism career from a different perspective.
As you know that I am currently a business reporter working with Daily Sun News and have been doing news reporting for the last 8 years. I am particularly keen to pursue a career in which I can implement my news writing and editing skills to effect change on a broad scale in the area of education.
This winter I will be in Washington working with a group of seasoned journalists from across the world. After completing my TV program entitled “Education in America” this month, I hope to join an international news agency to expand my scope and find new opportunities.
I will express thanks once again and hope that we will keep in touch in the future.
Reporter & TV Anchor,
Daily Sun New,
New York, United States

Dear (Recipient’s name),
Thank you for arranging a meeting with teachers and professors from well-known colleges in the United States. I must say that I could not have moved forward without your support.
I am spending the winter in New York interning with (company/organization name) staff. Before enrolling in the college, I spent three years working in IT department at a multinational company in Florida, but I guess I would love to work in a government-run entity after finishing my studies from the college.
I have had a great time with the teachers and students but would like to learn more about working at state-run organizations. (name), who is one of your closest associates, told me to contact you to check if you would be willing to meet while I am in (place/city/country).
I know you are usually on a tight schedule, but if you can spare some time, I would love to get together for dinner. I will be in (place/city/country) until at least (date)th and would be glad to arrange a meeting on any day that would suit you.
I thank you once again for taking the time and helping me connect with different teachers' associations.
