When networking to get interviews should I be reaching out to recruiters more or to technical people in similar positions? I'm generally bad at overcoming the shyness so trying to understand the strategy here

Hi folks. Writing this with lots of anticipation from the consulting brethren here.:)
I am trying to land an interview for my sister who is a BALLB for the forensics practices.
She has litigation experience of 1 plus year in law firms but is now trying to shift to forensics.
I tried linkedin and even the EY forensics HR route but it didn't work at all ☹️ No remorse, happens to all of us!
Please please 🙏 DM me if you can help me out. Would really mean a lot.

I had a couple of interviews recently with an agency and I think I’ve fully messed up my chances at the job (more $$ + interesting client) because I couldn’t fully figure out the logic question the VP asked me during my 2nd interview. I don’t think he disliked me but I’m not sure if I made a good enough impression work wise. Which sucks because I really liked the team. Now I can’t stop obsessing over it and am driving myself insane.

I’m also open to chat about this. Thanks for advice.
