Why should you still consider applying for an internship at Microsoft ?

Dear readers of the Be Your Future blog,

Not long until the Intern applications close on the 31st January which is why we have decided that in this episode of the Application Tips 101 Series, we wanted to explain why you should still consider applying to do a one-year internship at one of the biggest and most influential companies in the world.

Why exactly Microsoft?

As an organisation with endless opportunities and resources, Microsoft certainly knows how to get the most out of its employees. During a year-long internship you will have the chance to work closely and share ideas with some of the world’s most talented and aspiring people as well as to gain an in-depth insight into one of the world’s biggest and fast-paced industries. Sounds like an attractive opportunity? Well, don’t let it slip and apply as soon as you can!

As you already may be aware the first stage of the application process consists of filling in an application form. Here are some tips on how to ace it:

- Make sure that your CV is concise, structured and up to date… for more CV tips, click on the this link http://www.beyourfuture.net/application-tips-101

- You shouldn’t think of yourself as someone who has little or no chance of getting an offer from a prestigious company… if you show your strengths and qualities and back them up with good, compelling examples, you have as much chance of getting an offer as every other student out there!

- Be honest with the information you will be providing because there is a high possibility to be asked to explain more about your experiences at later stages such as the video interview or at the assessment centre

For more information regarding the rest of the application process make sure to check on this link in which interns from various roles explain in detail how they thought the application process was.
