My dad read in the paper about a local startup, so I emailed them saying I'd just graduated and would be interested in joining them as an intern or something. After an interview, they brought me on as a contractor, then hired me as the 7th employee.
Amazing how dads can be so helpful in one's career. Would be awesome to see how that email looked like!
It was most of a decade ago and I can't find it in my email archives, but I'm pretty sure that was about it. "I read about your startup in the county paper, I just graduated, are you hiring for an intern or something?" Nothing fancy, I didn't have any family connections to play on, just "Hello, are you hiring?"
