    When friending people, be sure to add a personal message. 9 times out of 10 they will read it and respond accordingly.
    From a job posting mention the posting, that you are interested, and put in your email.
    Message them only if they are active and approachable.
    In your message:
    Mention your interest in working with the company .
    Ask for assistance, who to talk to, etc.
    Never give them a work history or cover letter. Treat them as a friend – not a hiring manager.
