Start by introducing yourself and talk a bit about your background It is important to keep in mind that for the most part you will run this meeting, so start by explaining who you are, who referred you (or how you obtained their contact information), and why you have requested the meeting. This is an opportunity for you to present your story.
Ask engaging and insightful questions Your goal is to learn more about the industry, the company, and career paths within the organization. Keep your questions professional, but this is an opportune forum to ask about daily responsibilities, work-life balance, and new trends that may exist in the industry.
It is OK to show them your resume It is appropriate to explain that you have put together a resume and would appreciate his/her feedback as an expert. You don’t have to act on every piece of feedback, as you will receive plenty of it. It is not appropriate to ask a contact to pass along your resume. Remember, you are asking for information, not a job. If they offer to refer you or ask you to send them your resume, you may do so at that time.
