My husband Gary works in IT and so does my Dad. My Dad emailed 12 people within the large company he works for and asked if they'd talk to/act as
mentor for Gary. Several of the people on his list are CIOs and CTOs — not necessarily hiring managers.

How can he move the "mentoring" conversation to a push for a job?

What sorts of questions should he have for these high-ups?

Should he keep in contact with them afterwards (not including the thank you note that will be sent)?

How should he handle the fact that we live in Portland but want to move to Minnesota - in his interviews and in cover letters?
