(Cold) emailing a family friend of sortsPE
So...my mothers colleagues sister's husband is a Managing Director of a corporate law firm in NYC specialising in M&A mostly.
My mum's colleague told him about me, and how I am trying to go to NYC from Europe for an internship. He told her that I should email him.
I have his email and I have no idea how to do this because it's not exactly a cold email, nor do I personally know the man.
What should the subject be? What should I say? I was thinking to start with saying that I was given the email by **** and then a thank you for offering to help me out. After that I should possibly give a brief summary of my experience and education, and then talk about my M&A passion etc... and my ''dream'' of coming to work in NYC.
What do you guys think? Could you please give me advice on how to do this? I'm stuck...
I mean, should I ask if there would be any opportunity for me there? Or should I just ask for information? Maybe he'll decide to refer me to somewhere... and should I attach my resume as well?
Thanks for your help!
