@Lava:  I don’t know what Cold messageing is, but I would call them directly and say something along the lines of ” hi, I am Lava and I am calling in regards to the status of my resueme”. a week out isnt that bad of a time frame to do that.

With Linked in, i definitely discourage people from senting the form request if you don’t know them. 

I usually add them with a message of “Hi X, I saw you work at X Company. I’m looking at some opportunities with them, but would love the chance to hear from a current employee. Can I ask you a few questions?”

then, when they respond, keep the questions short and specific. Seriously, no more than 2-3.
