Example Message Using the Bee Connection

Dear <alum>,

I found your name through the Bee Connection at St. Ambrose University. As a senior at St. Ambrose, I am majoring in psychology with a minor in English.

After graduation I am interested in pursuing a graduate degree in counseling and working with children with behavioral problems and families in transition. I see from your profile that this is your specialty area. Would you be open to letting me email, call, or meet you in person so that I can learn more about your career path? Like you, I am currently in Davenport and would be available to meet at your earliest convenience. I am free any day next week 2-5 p.m. I appreciate your consideration of my request for advice, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Jane Smith
