So I'm trying to find an unpaid spring or summer internship in investment management and have been sending this email out to small companies: "Hello, My name is X and I am studying Finance at Y . I'm reaching out to see if your company has any internship opportunities. I've attached my resume. Thank you, X ." I figured it would be good because it's simple. Wrong. The people who have responded have just said "No. We do not have any internship opportunities at this time." Should I respond with "Would you be willing to take me on as an unpaid intern?" and then give some more details about planning on taking CFA L1 this June and wanting to learn more about investment management?
Why didn't I just say that in the first place?
