Hi (first name),
I’m a fellow NYU alumnus who has spent the last decade in freelance creative producer roles. Most recently, I worked for (Name of Company) overseeing content creation for the world’s largest LED screen.
After a successful freelancing career I am considering transitioning into a full-time position, and it seems like a career in Creative Services could be an interesting fit for my operations skills and creative experience.
I was wondering if for 10 to 15 minutes I could ask you some questions about your position and field. I want to assure you I am not going to ask you for a job. I am just hoping to learn about what you do to see if this would be a good career move.
My sincere thanks for taking the time to consider this request.
