I wrote an inquiry email to an international company. In the email, I asked if they had some new jobs available.
They were surprised to have received my email, because they had not yet announced any job opening on their web site (I told them that I heard about the job opening from a friend). They wanted to find out who had told me about this, so they asked for my friend's name and also told me to submit my CV.
I am rather concerned about my friend, but I don't want to lose this job opportunity or make the prospective company think I had lied to them if I don't present friend's name.
I have drafted a reply to the company, but I am nervous about if the drafted reply is appropriate and good enough corresponding to this situation.
Updated info: My friend has agreed to help.
