Definitely possible, and as you mentioned, it happens all the time in the entertainment business. When I was eighteen, I was given a SAG card. My father was an entertainment attorney who knew all the studio heads. One summer he decided that I should be a tour guide at Universal Studios, so he made a call during the spring. I was invited to interview in a trailer along with the rest of the world — a real cattle call. Only a handful of the hundreds of applicants were rewarded with employment. All of us had parents who knew someone.
