Strategy for asking for a job (from CD)

Just was curious, how folks went about asking about potential roles with firms they interacted with.

In my current role (Corp Dev), we do get inbounds from decent banks and some interesting PE firms. I'm curious if there was a way that some people had success with, with regard to asking about potential employment.

I understand its a bit of a fine line you need to manage but was wondering if there were any success stories out there and how they managed.
