This startup was founded by graduates from my university. A year ago, I applied for a Deep Learning internship, but they rejected my application saying I don't have enough practical experience. They said they would consider me for a full-time position when I got the required experience. I have worked hard for the past year and I think I now have enough experience. I mailed them my CV and cover letter 10 days ago.
One of the co-founders is friends with me on Facebook. My dilemma here is this: should I contact him on FB? Would this be appropriate?
