Some savage ripped the crossword answer sheet out of my in-flight mag. How am I supposed to know what "to go, say" is alluding to without talking to the guy next to me in the nascar jacket

There’s a position I want to apply to at a different company, and it seems like it would fit me perfectly. I went on LinkedIn and saw that there’s one person from my undergrad school that works there with a similar title for the job I want. How do I reach out to him and how much is too much? Do I ask for advice on getting the job/how the job is/ a referral? Should I even reach out?
