I am interested in public sector consulting, and I tried to reach out to partners focusing on the public sector cases in some companies I applied to via LinkedIn. Two of them replied to me and I have scheduled phone calls with them recently.
I wonder how would I be able to impress them in a short, cold phone call? I have just graduated and have no working experience before, is it possible to get a referral from them? What should I do to maximize these phone call chances?
Need your suggestions and many thanks for your time!
