Help for internship

Postby jmordret » Wed, 18 Jan 2012 5:58 am

Hell everyone, I am Julien from France, I live near Paris and I am highly interested in being an intern in Singapore between may 15 and september 1st. I am studying for a Bachelor in business administration.

I have been applying for internship positions in quite a lot of companies and so far it didn't work.

Could anyone advise me on any company / type of company to contact ?
I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thank you

Julien

Hi Julien :)

I hope you are anticipating your stay in Singapore.
I suggest that you can upload your cv/resume to online portals. Employers may see your resume and contact you. Alternatively you may also apply for the jobs online.

Oh, did the companies reply you with the reasons for not employing? I suspect that it is probably because they are not able to do an interview with you in person, so they can't really gauge how good you are as a candidate..


Hope this helps :)

Hey, thank you for your reply !
No, the companies very rarely answered me and when they did, they never told me why they didn't accept me.
But just after I posted this, I got a positive answer ! So i hope it will work. But if it doesn't I will follow your advice and post my CV online to improve my chances :)

Thank you for having taken the time to reply :)

Julien

Linkedin is one such online portal. get your full profile up, and get networking.

many recruiters browse it, and if you have a good profile you may well be contacted by them
