Hey everyone, I'm new here and in need of some advice. I feel like I totally backed myself in a corner.
Here's the story, last week I was at a bar with some friends, one of which encouraged me to talk to the waitress. I did and found out she's looking for a job in the same business I'm in. I offered to pass her resume along and even help with her website (I'm a web developer).
I got her business card, sent her an email so she could send me her resume. She replied a couple days letter and was very enthusiastic. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there is an opening in my company for her. Also she hasn't asked for my help with her site yet; although she did say that once the design is done she would love my input.
Here's the thing, I don't want to wait around for the possibility of her design being done soon. It could take weeks for all I know. I would like to meet up with her outside of her job and really try to start something. It seems like my only option is the direct approach but I don't want to seem like I helped her to get something in return. Any thoughts?
