This question already has an answer here:
A recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn. They referenced that I had attended an event at their company and say they want to talk about me, my interests and their company (this is an inhouse recruiter) and the possibilities they offer. We set a time to have coffee.
Now I know this is a company that reaches out to many graduates. How do I stand out, and how do I ask them why they reached out to me? (OK I know my LinkedIn profile is good but let's set that aside).
Asking "what did you have in mind for me?" is probably not a good idea, as it conveys the idea that I do not want to take charge of my own job search. There is some information on the company online, but this seems very generic. What can I ask to get more, appropriate, information? And at the same time: come across as interested?
Edit: this was marked as a possible duplicate of "How to respond to vague recruiter requests" but that question is more about recruiters fishing. I am genuinely interested in getting more information from this recruiter, I just don't know how to phrase it.
