Help!! What would You do in this scenario ??


  • Sent random Linkedin connection request to ceo of regional company I want to work at. He Accepts!
  • He messages Me, asks about my name (It's uncommon), and if he can "provide any information" about company.
  • I throw out the cold dm, try to not ask for a job, but let him know my interest.
  • His reply: Happy to have convo /  Please email me.

What am I supposed to do in this email? Set an appointment to talk? Drop Resume and Cover letter? Just be Friendly? I have not networked very much in past jobs, I don't know the etiquette for this!

Someone please advise!
