Here’s the email template I used to reach out to people who had already made the journey I was trying to make:

Hi [Name],

My name is [Your Name] and I found your info while I was looking for people who made the transition into [New Industry] from a non-traditional background.

Your experience making the transition from [Old Company] to [New Company] really stood out to me.

I know you’re probably extremely busy and I also know your time is valuable. If you do have a few minutes, I’d love to learn more about your journey and ask you a couple of questions.

I know that’s a big ask from a stranger, so no worries if it’s too much. If you do have a few minutes, I’d be really grateful. Either way, have a fantastic week!

Best,

[Your Name]
