Research: Learn It
My name is [redacted] and I’m a senior at the University of [redacted] at [redacted]. I’m majoring in [redacted] and [redacted]. This summer, I’ll be an intern for Forbes--working under [redacted]. (I sent an e-mail to your Forbes account but wasn't sure which account you might check more often.)
For my final paper in [redacted] and the [redacted] class, I’m looking at Forbes’ business model, specifically the way the company allows advertisers to publish their own content directly to the website.
I’ve always enjoyed your contributions to Forbes and follow your work on Vice and other publications. I’m interested in your perspective as a Forbes contributor, but I also think your thoughts would add some great color to the topic, since the vice beat is so interesting and unusual.
Please let me know when you’re available to speak this week. I can conduct the interview on the phone, or by e-mail if you’re too busy to chat. I’m pretty much free Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday--any time of the day or evening.
I look forward to hearing from you!
[Redacted]'s an asshole, I don't write for Forbes anymore, and I've never written for Vice. So no.
