I need to get my dream job and it is currently open. I know who the hiring manager is - he is the director of the department. I know him through a mutual connection (the mutual connection did me a solid by telling me but we don't REALLY know each other). She said he is super sweet so I imagine I can reference her when I reach out.
My question is- I want to message him on linked in and let him know I applied but I am not sure what else to say that would be OK. I don't want to sound desperate or too strong. I need to stand out!!! I haven't had an interview yet or anything. HELP!
