Yes, you read the title right.
Set up time with anyone who is manager level or above.
You can’t do 3 directly or you’ll throw your interviewer off - after all, they just see this as a casual coffee chat - but if you do it implicitly and then follow up, it can work.
For example, here’s a possible follow up email you could write after doing 1 through 3 on the phone:
Enjoyed hopping on a call to chat about [XYZ unique thing].
[More personalization / an interesting topic you two talked about].
P.S. I know you mentioned [ABC challenge]. I actually might be able to help there and I happen to be looking for a new role too. If you’d like, I’d be happy to hop on another call to discuss that in more detail.
Hope this helps - hustle onwards.
