Do I ask a newly formed friend about an opportunity?
I recently moved to a new place where I don't know anyone and without a job lined up. A mutual friend, A, had mentioned another friend, B, of theirs lives in the area and we'd get along, so I reached out. A day later friend A mentions that friend B is looking to fill a position in their company.
Do I ask friend A to bring it up with friend B? Do I ask friend B directly about it now? Do I wait until we're better friends first? To use M&M's analogy; make sure the elastic band is warm? I'm afraid of leading them to think I only wanted to befriend them in the first place to get a job and leave a bad impression.
I know now I should have started looking earlier or built a better network before now. But I am where I am now and would like some advice. Thank you everyone!
