How could I get you on the phone?
What would make you reply to my email (not a template), if we had nothing in common?
Background: non-target genuinely interested in the markets (I know it sounds like what everyone else says). I try to follow the markets through some websites/podcasts like Macro Voices and Macro Hive, as well as twitter accounts such as @AlessioUrban.
I have found that reaching out to people in the industry (previously done it in other industries) is really helpful as you can learn a lot that you couldn't figure out as an outsider. I don't do it with the sole intention of getting an internship (although I would one).
I have seen many posts about networking, which have been very helpful (this website is extremely helpful), but I'm unsure how applicable they are in thespace.
