When someone tells you a few names of partners/more senior consultants who „work exactly in the field you‘re interested in/have a similar background as you have, you might want to send them an email to get in touch, feel free to put me in CC“ - what do you write in that email? New Hire here, not sure how to contact people I‘ve never met like that!

Hello X,

I'm a new BA and very interested in working in (their industry). Before McKinsey I (shared background). X recommended reaching out to you given our shared background and interests. Would you be available to connect in the coming weeks? Let me know what works best. Thank you.

Please make the (shared background) as short as possible. I really enjoy these chats, but don’t enjoy two paragraphs of CV before the ask. You’re here, I believe you’re awesome until proven wrong!

I cringe when I'm at a friend's house and they answer their phone, find out it's a telemarketer, and just hang up on them. It's so rude. They know I have to cold-call people at my job and you'd think they would at least act like they were more respectful of the job.
