Be so awesome that they can’t ignore you! To get an interview, you MUST write a cover letter that reflects your personality.
What’s the fastest way to NOT get a job or internship with you? (e.g. what should potential applicants avoid doing if they were to ever interview with you for a position).
If you want to avoid getting hired, talk negatively about your former job, co-workers or boss.

Because your community needs talented individuals with new ideas and fresh perspectives to make the decisions that will shape our futures.
