asking WSO people for internships

how appropriate is it to ask WSO members for internships

instead of cold calling/emailing, why instead not reach out to people over here? We already have 1 thing in common: browsing WSO, so there's some rapport. We could even have some good laughs on a coffee meeting about some topics over here instead of going through a generic discussion/boring

Q: Why shouldn't WSO users help other WSO users in terms of referrals?

Very good point. 

I also feel that out of the kids applying, those who sit on WSO are the ones who are often actually interested in finance / people who work in finance. Would cut out a lot of the nerds with no personality imo.

indeed, sometimes I wonder what would happen if you would build an investment bank only with active WSO users

i mean, you'll have everything from directors to juniors and plenty of jokes, advice, finance knowledge, hardos, building good cultures based on what people suggest here, ambition, etc.
