1/5, RSS and TED

Last week, I sent an e-mail to some of the companies in my list. Let’s see what are the results.

I haven’t sent 87 e-mails. I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by the replies. So I just chose 5. Here is what I sent :

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Corentin Blanchard. I am a French undergraduate in an engineering school specialized in acoustics. As part of my course, I am searching for companies working in acoustics in the United States of America.

During my researches, I discovered your company and wanted to go further. Therefore, I would like to know if you or a member of your team would accept to be interviewed about how your company works.

Thank you in advance for your reply,

Best regards,

Corentin Blanchard.

I sent these e-mails on wednesday, after my finals. And I didn’t have any reply so far. Except this friday night (don’t forget the time difference). There is a very kind man that accepted to be interviewed. Now, I am going to explain more my project and I will see if he’s okay for an interview !

An other thing I did this week is creating an RSS feed about acoustics. Some of the companies I want to join have a blog or a news feed, so I decided to subscribe to it to keep me up-to-date. That’s an other way to be close to them in a way. Here is a picture of my RSS feed :

And thanks to this, I found out something very interesting ! Some of you probably know the TED talks. The TED talks are conferences given by professionnals about Technology, Entertainment and/or Design (hence the acronym).  I love these talks, there are so inspiring ! And among all the entries in my RSS feed, there was a post about a TED talk about acoustics and architecture. It was very interesting to me so you should watch it below !

To conclude, I am both happy and stressed that someone accepted to be interviewed. Maybe I will come up with something cool ! But that will be for the next post !

Thanks for reading and tell me if you spotted any English mistake =)

PS : I want to thank Renaud Farlotti for having designed this wonderful logo and favicon ! Check his website !
