Seducing future MD to secure that internship???


I am aching, yearning, desperate for a BB internship. So desperate, in fact, that I am willing to throw away my shame and my morals and do a dirty deed - seducing my potential future MD.

Okay, jokes aside, I happen to know a few MDs and Partners at both BBs and EBs via LinkedIn. I also happen to know that a few of them are partial to wines and Christmas is approaching with fast steps. So here´s the pitch: I send them a wine, maybe one of those they produce in my region, together with a letter - typed, since my handwriting is hot garbage. In there, I do my little spiel, great work with that recent deal, I am a big admirer of what you´re doing, pls hire me daddy, yadda yadda, and then I wait. With a bit of luck, I should get a positive response in about 25% of the cases. That´s a lot of wine, but as I said, I am fucking desperate.

Pls r8, m8s, don´t h8, but be honest: Is this crazy enough to work or simply stupid?

If I were working from home and I got a bottle of wine from some kid who wants an internship, I'd feel like it was laced with poison unless you know them REALLY well.

Just do the normal thing and send feet pics dude. Or, you know, ask them if they have time for a phone call.

Lol. I'm crazy and I never seduced anyone to get what I want. That's not the right tactic and you gain a bad reputation. I just don't give them what they truly want, and that has been working for me. What you need to do is twist their mind by ghosting for a bit or tripping up their ego then taking it away all of a sudden.

Jorbanana, I´ve read a few of your posts now and I gotta say, you 100% sound like my team mate from MBA. Catholic, virgin, hyper neurotic, probably frigid too. Get some help, yo, you´re embarassing the Big Red.
