I mentioned I was thinking of applying to Google to a friend I've known for years. He said that he knows one of the technical higher-ups (let's call him "Bob") in Google and gave me his home number.
What should I say when I call Bob at his home address? I don't think I should ask for a job directly, but I should ask if I can send my resume to him, right? What are the proper etiquette and pitfalls here? Could I hurt my chances by saying to wrong thing?
I do feel uncomfortable calling Bob at home, but my friend is family to Bob and told Bob to expect my call. I don't want to let this opportunity pass.
