Linkedin message etiquette to a connection at a company I am applying to (not hiring manager)

Current role is philanthropy coordinator at a non profit where I’ve worked for 7 months. I enjoy it, but also considering moving to a larger company with a larger team.

I’ve applied for a position with an organization where a former assistant professor is employed on the marketing team. They are not the hiring manager, but I wish to let them know that I’ve applied so that they could possibly put in a word for me. I wouldn’t ask them to do this, I just want them to be aware …

What’s a good etiquette for LinkedIn messaging in regards to this?
