Will keep this short and sweet. Recently connected with an alumni that’s a PM (quite the anomaly considering UG).
Nonetheless, they work for a smaller shop and offered to pass on my résumé. Is there a benefit to waiting? As of now I’m not sure how much incentive they have to endorse me. Will be meeting them in person within the next month. Thanks, all.
My guess is that the resume is just a check to make sure he knows what your background is and if it would be appropriate to take any further steps with you. My guess is that he’s predisposed to meet you, the resume will just be to identify potential talking points and how close you are to the profile of someone who could potentially work in his firm or industry.
Go ahead and send it. Finance people tend to be about seeing things and making good decisions quickly, so don’t slow him down.
