Application Tips!

Read below for a few tips from Lindsay!

  1. Ask your reference to fill out the form EARLY! Just like any other recommendation, you want to give the person as much time as possible to write about how great you are.
  2. When reviewing applications, I put slightly more weight on the cover letter so be sure to put some real effort into it. Be genuine and authentic, answer the questions thoughtfully and maximize the opportunity to express your passion for the position!
  3. Follow instructions carefully and PROOFREAD before submitting. Your application should reflect your professionalism, and shouldn’t look like a text message with uncapitalized “i”s, abbreviations or lolz.

Good luck!
