Final Thoughts 57  Be collegial: Rather than focusing on how to make a „good impression‟ or „being perfect‟, focus on being clear, curious and respectful.  Be gracious: Remember to thank people for their time and efforts, regardless of how helpful their advice immediately appears to be.  Be in touch: Send an email and tell them it was a pleasure to meet them, or that you‟ve been considering what they said. Give them an update, or ask for advice. Small gems.
