Two years ago, I interned at a company over the summer. Everything went well, and at the end of things they informally invited me to work for them again. About a month ago, I decided to see if they would be willing to rehire me for this summer.
The company had changed their email provider, however, so I was unable to contact my old boss. A friend of mine, who has interned at the same company, and is doing so this summer, gave me the email address of his boss to contact. I sent him the following email:
Mr. [Friend's boss],
[Friend] suggested that you might be the person to contact to discuss the possibility of an internship at [company] this summer. We met briefly a while back; I interned at the [city] office under the supervision of [my boss] from summer 2011-spring 2012. If a position is available, I'd be thrilled to work for [company] again, and would appreciate information regarding what would be necessary to arrange this.
Thank you, [Me]
I never received a response. I waited two weeks, and asked my friend to, if he saw his boss, mention that I was trying to get in contact. A few days later, he tells me that he spoke to his boss, and that his boss told him that he had been busy, and would respond to my email soon.
That conversation occurred two weeks ago, and still nothing. Is there any way I can politely prod for a response?
