So here is a short to what could be a very long list:
3) Keep track of what you applied for. If you don't keep track, an employer will call you and you will have no idea what job they are calling you about. Red Flag right there!
4) Your cover letter has to be specific. I asked an alumna who posted an internship with us to let me know if she received any Hofstra applications. Her response: "Got a few bites. Most of them did not actually change their cover letters or resumes... We are not a 'Focus Features' internship and we will not help you with your objective to obtain an internship in the radio industry..." GULP! That should never ever happen!
So obviously this list can go on and on, so I would suggest you do a little more research before clicking that application button. Here's a good article to check out for more info:
And of course if you visit us at The Career Center, you will be properly guided, so please stop by and we'll make sure we give you the Do's and Dont's!
