I have an informal chat with a (potential) hiring manager from the tech industry (non-tech PgM). They had a role open a few days ago but not anymore, however they were still interested in chatting with me. P.S. got this through cold calling on linkedin... Do you guys have any tips for my call tomorrow?

Find a way to make a personal connection, something in common, look ahead to the weekend, anything to be casual Have a brief intro of yourself ready to give (work history, goals, education, and or skills...keep it short). Offer to send a resume if it’d be good for emergence during or after call (have email drafted and ready to send in case they want it on the moment). Tell them about the types of roles you’re interested in and why you reached out. Say you noticed those exact roles weren’t posted any longer but you wondered if they could advise you on things coming soon which could be a fit for your profile. If they share some roles, ask if there’s anyone else you should talk to. Watch the clock and don’t go over time Thank them at the end

Thank you so much. This is much appreciated. I don’t know them AT ALL and this would be my first ever call with them. Do you think sharing resume might be a good strategy in the first go or asking them to connect with another colleague?

As I’m job hunting, I realize that my experiences are very general and I feel like many of the roles I’m applying to will find out I’m a fraud when I interview.
