You can start networking with those who do the hiring.
Just curious, how would one go about "staying in touch" with someone they have never met over the course of 3 years? What the heck did he email you about during this time?You can start networking with those who do the hiring.
I had a P1 contact me and said he would like to do P4 rotation when time comes. He stayed in touch with me through the years. Then he did the rotation...then got hired when licensed.
You can ask him for letter of recommendation, add him on Linkedin if he has one, or just email him once or twice before you graduate asking if he is involved in any exciting project that you can get in. Of course it depends on the type of setting he is in.Just curious, how would one go about "staying in touch" with someone they have never met over the course of 3 years?

I've had multiple preceptors in IPPE that really liked me but how would I go about staying in contact with them if I really have nothing to say to them or ask of them?
One preceptor liked me on rotation and and by chance was involved with my school and graded on of my mock patient consultations. He went on excessively about how great I did and took off no points (he actually made some other pretty good students repeat the assessment). I feel like I have an opportunity to network with people like this that I have made a good impression with but don't know how to stay in contact once the short rotation is over.
At least from my experience, a lot of kids from my class got jobs from wherever they had interned at and/or from the career fair our school held in November.
