Tips for phone call with alumni
So I have setup calls with some alumni from my school - I have chatted with guys I legitimately knew from my early college years, but also with people who I don't know at all, and the only connection we have is the school we went to. What kinds of things do you usually talk about when this is the case? With this guy I knew, he was very straightforward and we just kind of talked for a bit, and then he said "yeah I'll make sure your resume gets thru to HR", without it feeling like a burden at all. He genuinely wanted to help me out, but then again, we were buddies in college for a year. How should I approach this for other people whom I didn't know/may be older?
