One of my dream agencies is hiring but I don’t know anyone there directly. Would I have better luck hitting up a recruiter I know has connections there or sending a blind email to a CD?

Double check that you don’t have any connections. Even secondary.

Or...Find the internal recruiter on linkedin and email them directly...if you can’t find their work email figure out the email structure via someone with a publicly listed email.

Otherwise, yeah reach out to outside recruiter.
