I will be applying for a very competative internship next year. The application won't be available until early next summer. Although I do have qualifications, I might not be the most qualified amongst hundreds of applicants. So, how do I make myself stand out? There is only 1 position available, the internship is for 1 year, and it is in Alaska.
Tell me what you think of this:
I was thinking of sending them a letter expressing my interest in their program in either November or December. I would include my resume with the letter. I also thought that I could send another letter in Spring saying that I was still interested and eager to apply. The second letter would be much shorter. Then, if granted an interview in late summer, I would send a card/letter thanking them for their consideration. So.. is sending two letters overkill? Will it make me look desperate?
Also.. does sending a picture with my application look unprofessional, or could it be helpful?
Any thoughts? Thanks!
I lost my W-2 from my former job 4 or 5 years ago. I didn't get to file it. If I get my W-2, can I file it for this year or whenever I get it? And how do I get a copy or of my W-2 from my former job. The thing is I don't remember where I used to work. What should I do?
