Hi, I am currently sending emails and networking with people in order to get referrals. I have seen from past articles that for more industry experience people, it is recommended to directly network with the partner in charge of your industry recruitment.
My question is: would the conversation topic be different compared to networking with partners who are not in charge of the recruitment? I am reaching out to the partner to understand more about the team instead of asking his referral. When talking to partners in charge of recruitment, would it be more "selling myself" or understanding their experience? It is crystal clear that I reach out to the recruitment partner in order to join the partner's team. How should I drive the conversation in this case? Could I frame the discussion topics like: I would like to know more about your team and current projects, so that I could know better how I position in your team and deliver my value?
