Summer Job Tips
1. Get specific about your accomplishments.
Talk about how you’ve contributed to previous organizations, and the results of that help. Don’t be shy!
2. Show you’re knowledgeable about the company.
Check out the company website and talk about why you want to work for their unique company.
“It underscores your enthusiasm for the job.”
3. Talk about long-term interest.
Don’t be afraid to talk about your desire to commit to the company. It could set you apart in a transient job market.
4. Submit a cover letter.
“Often overlooked by job seekers, the cover letter enables you to showcase your communication skills,
grab their attention and highlight your main selling points.”
5. Remember to send a thank you.
Sending a thank you note or email is a great chance to remind your interviewer about your best qualities,
and an opportunity to reassert your interest in being hired.
