Currently I'm in a role that I like, but don't love in real estate finance.
There's a position that would be a promotion AND more inline with my long term goals.
I met a guy at the firm and a few months back reached out about openings. Looks like they had some turnover and posted an opening. I texted him, he suggest I apply and sent him my resume and stuff.
*He didn't seem overly anxious to help me, but definitely didn't shut me down.
I've always operated under the, don't be too needy guise, but something about this role is super attractive and I want to know what my next move should be. It's been 8 days since I sent to him, I also sent my materials to the firms generalized email.
I did mention him in my CV, that I learned about the firm through him blah blah. It's only 50 people.
I don't want to be super needy, but I do kinda wanna aggressively pursue this option. My only real concern is they'll think things are bad at my current shop which isn't the case.
On a side note, prior to me applying, we've arranged to grab coffee again before work on Friday, not sure how to act but either way he's cool, a good mentor with a love for the industry and could see us working together in the future, on deals maybe outside of work.
Any ideas what to do from here? I'm not actively looking for work. I was just interested in this specific opportunity.
