Do you know this guy, and did you investiage him and/or his company at all? This seems out of the blue, but there may be some backstory we don’t know.

I would first find out who the guy is.

Is he a hiring manager? Could he know someone at your company? If you have marketing experience, I don’t know how it is a career change, per se. But hey…lol

 

Just in case, I would write something like:

“Thank you for contacting me in regards to your future opportunity. I would be happy to make myself available to discuss this with you over the telephone as I have connections in the marketing industry and would be interested to hear about your company, to learn if we may be a good fit for one another.

What is the best number to reach you at?

best regards,

You do NOT want to come off too eager to make a jump-if they hire you…they may have it in the back of their mind. I am a headhunter so we message people on Linkedin all the time…

NOT many employers have time to jump on linkedin to look for candidates plus do their job, so thats why I would keep my back up a bit first, until you find out who this guy is.

Good luck!

@jpalm13:  Personally, I’d stick to LinkedIn until he suggests another method of communication.

It can’t hurt to check out, but definitely go into it with some defenses up!
