Heya! If you have the free time and are interested in an internship, I would go for it! I’ve heard that some high school students get internships, so I don’t see why college students wouldn’t. It might be a little harder if you’re just starting out in college, but I would recommend to check out smaller companies/businesses (versus the big-name companies, who usually have class standing requirements). Good luck! :)
When sending an introduction email, it might get a little tricky weather to attach a resume because the recipient is just an acquaintance or someone you met/heard of (versus being your friend). While some people suggest waiting until the second or third email to attach the resume, I would go ahead and send it with the introduction. It lets people know about your experience, skills, etc, and just removes that extra step of asking for it.
Going back to your question, I think it would have been a good point to attach it in the email, since your dad said the recipient was expecting it. However, if you’ve already established contact and have sent a few emails back and forth, it wouldn’t hurt to attach it in the next email with a quick note. :)
Best of luck!
