Cold emailing alumni during earnings season: terrible idea?
I'm about to enter my senior year and am trying to secure an off-cycleinternship since I missed the boat for summer internships. Nearly impossible, I know, but I plan to at least try. I have the benefit of going to school in the city.
Would it be a terrible idea to reach out to alumni given that it's earnings season? Under other circumstances I would wait, but I'm worried that the clock is ticking.
Also, in light of my less-than-ideal timeline, should I skip theask about internships? I hesitate only because the connection won't be as strong, which means they'll be that much less inclined to do me a favor (and let's be real, it's a favor).
Any and all advice is appreciated. Reality checks are welcome as well.
