Can you guys help me with this unusual cover letter situation?
I’ve asked Fluther for career help a couple times in the past and the answers have been so thoughtful and helpful. Every time I’ve applied for new jobs in the past, it’s been through a new job posting or a mutual professional contact.
This time, my boyfriend took some initiative and did something really considerate for me. He works near an educational institution that has a shop connected. He went over there and 1) introduced himself to the president of the school and got his contact info, and 2) did the same with the general manager of the shop and found out that they’re looking for an assistant manager, and the position hasn’t been posted yet. He also told her about my experience, knowledge, etc, and now she wants to meet me as soon as I send over my resume (!).
It’s a great opportunity and a perfect fit for me. The shop has an educational mission because they’re backed by the school, so they have a very unique selection of wines from unusual, up-and-coming regions. I’m really excited at the prospect of working there.
I’m definitely sending my resume to the GM, but should I also send it to the president of the school? Should I send them separate e-mails or cc them both on the same e-mail? And obviously I want them to know who I am from these conversations… but I can’t think of a professional way to say, “hi, my boyfriend introduced me to this job opening.” Thoughts?
