My sister knows everyone at an EB!!!

Hello everyone, 

Today I got a good one for you all.

My older sister is a doctor and in the past weeks has been going around companies to do COVID-19 rapid tests and among these firms there is a very well known EB. She's been there several times and got to know very well the employees, I mean very well... The MD even explicitly asked his secretary to call for her when he has to do a COVID test. She even did 8 tests to the president of Lazard of my country (Wikipedia page man). 

 

The real big question is: how can I leverage this? 

1) Am I too ambitious thinking I can send an e-mail to the MD saying I am her brother? 

2) She's got his phone number, should I ask her to contact the MD and introduce me to him to have much better chances to actually talk to him? 

3) She has already put me in contact with a VP but hasn't answered yet, how can I follow up? 

4) If I manage to speak to one of these people what should I talk about? 

 

Please help me, I think it would be stupid not to take this opportunity but there is also a chance I might screw this up....

Thank you a lot!!!

Dear MD,

 

My name is Prospect; my older sister did your prostate exam the other day. She says you did great! She also says not to worry too much about the crabs. By the way, I was wondering if you'd have time to connect regarding your firm's internship program. Are you free for a 10-15 minute call? Hope you feel better soon!

 

Best,

Prospect

I think your best bet without being weird is for your sister to just nonchalantly mention that her brother is trying to break into the industry. Hopefully this fishes out a response that leads to them wanting to help you out.

I swear everyone here is a fucking simp, but a true next-level hardo would encourage her to get railed by all of the employees to maximize the odds of getting an offer

This. OP, do not leverage this, it is not at all a warm/normal intro and your sister could get in huge trouble.

Why is everyone so cuckish on this thread. "My mom said hi to the grocer in a shop, so she got piped by him" is what everyone is implying lmfao.
