I'm currently transitioning career fields and looking to connect with a mentor or sponsor. I connected with a mentor on a site specifically catered to mentorship in my new field and have been trying to connect with this mentor after they confirmed they are available & interested in speaking. I've responded to the last email they sent asking for my timezone and followed up subsequently., unfortunately, I'm getting the feeling I may be "ghosted" as they have yet to confirm our meeting for tomorrow. However, I would like to follow up one final time in a few days.
Any advice on
- if this is a relationship I should continue to pursue? if so
- how do I send a final follow-up that also keeps the opportunity open?
