Online Challenges

This year, the FOFY Online Challenges are asking YOU to get internship-ready by creating your own practice internship application!

Each week you’ll be tasked with completing a step in the application process – the same steps you would take were you to be actually applying for an internship. At the end of the Festival, the applications will be reviewed and the successful applicant will WIN a customised careers prize pack valued at $1000!

Challenge 1

Log on to CareerHub and search Job Opportunities to find an ad for an internship that you find interesting. You’ll use this job ad as an example to base the rest of your practice application on. Save the details, and write yourself a list of the skills and experience you could bring to the role.

Challenge 2

Write a resume tailored to the internship you chose in the first challenge (here are a few tips on resume writing to get you started!). This should be no more than 2 pages.

Once you’ve crafted your resume, submit it to Rate My Resume and make any suggested changes.

Challenge 3

Write yourself a cover letter to go alongside your resume (maximum 500 words), describing why you want the job and what you can bring to the role. Read this article for a few tips to get you started!

Challenge 4

Visit Careers (CB01.04.13) for a 15-minute Drop-in session with one of our enthusiastic Recruitment Advisors before the end of August – bring a printed copy of your cover letter along, and they’ll help you perfect it. Be sure to make any recommended changes afterwards!

Challenge 5

You’re finally ready to apply! It’s time to submit your resume and cover letter, and complete your video interview. Submissions are due by 11.59pm on Sunday 9 September, so get yours in quick so you don’t miss out!
