How to proceed
cold emailed a senior analyst, who is an ex-pat in the country that I am planning to study abroad in.
"I had relayed your request to my superior (Head of Research) to see if we have any capacity to take on an intern. I haven't heard back from him yet, but I fear the answer will be no, and if 'yes', they'd probably prefer to use that slot to vet a young ____ candidate who might make a full-time local hire upon graduation. However, I will continue to pursue it. Also, I have contacts through the analyst community, and if not with ___, then maybe we can get your foot in the door somewhere else."
Thoughts? Should i ask for a phone call or how should i proceed?
