I was at an event a week ago and struck up a conversation with a CEO-level executive of a big firm (someone everyone on here would know but I won't disclose). I asked for advice and surprisingly he gave me a business card and asked me to call him in the next few weeks. I wasn't expecting that, but he seemed sincere and I think we'll actually have a conversation.
Any tips / thoughts on how to maximize this opportunity? Would you just straight out ask for a job? Appreciate any thoughts, thanks!
