Key Takeaway #1: How to stand out with your application?

It’s a fact that when there is an open internship position the recruiters receive +100 emails, and the process of selection starts the minute you send your application. So you are probably wondering how to separate yourself from the crowd. Our recruiters recommend the following:

  • Use a proper email address.
  • Don’t leave the subject empty.
  • Be formal/semiformal.
  • Always write something in the email, don’t send just an attachment.
  • Tailor your application to the job.
  • Make your application easy to read.
  • Use the right keywords.
  • Make sure you have perfect spelling and grammar.
  • Don’t forget to attach your resume!

What to include in your CV:

  • Do Highlight Your Most Relevant Experiences
  • Do Include Soft Skills
