- The first step in applying, you’ve already discovered, is to attend an orientation. The orientation will go over EVERYTHING about the program; nuts to bolts. AND ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY.
- At the orientation you will receive an application package and you will be instructed on how to upload specific documents that MUST be completed/uploaded by the deadlines.
After registering in our online database, Symplicity, the documents that must be completed and uploaded to our online application program are:
- ONE-PAGE RESUME
For help in completing your ONE-PAGE resume you’ll find a sample resume and a list of action verbs that will help you write the best descriptions of what you’ve done (do) at former (and current) jobs and internships.
- A COVER LETTER
This letter, addressed to Dear Internship Center Counselor, will note your FIT student status (i.e., I am a seventh semester AMC major). It will also describe relevant work and volunteer experience and conclude by stating that you will confirm your appointment with your counselor a day or two before your scheduled interview and that you understand that you must be dressed professionally for your interview.
This is an exercise that will assess your understanding of our rules and regulations.
