Anyone with a job listing out there could be a potential candidate. If they are looking to hire someone in your space they might also be interested in doing some contracting, at least in the short term. If you make the email genuinely personal with an eye towards helping them come to a useful solution, it could be a good way to go.
I'd hate to get this kind of email if it were generic but if you take the time to speak to their needs it doesn't seem so bad. They're opting in towards some form of inbound contact with the listing. If you're tasteful about it this could be a pleasant approach for everyone involved.
Thank you for the tips!
