I got outreach from a recruiter at a company, an exciting thing. The job looks like a good fit for me. I realized that someone I used to work with 2 jobs back and haven't talked to in a few years is actually the head of the department. What do others think is the best timing for reaching out to that person who you have the previous relationshp? Immediately before talking to the recruiter? Or after you've vetted with the recruiter? Do you mention the relationship with the head of department to the recruiter when you talk to them? I'm very curious what recruiters on this list think. Thanks in advance for the good advice!
