Q&A w/Professional Internship Recruiters

7 Ways To Ace Your Disney Professional Internship Application

All of the listed tips below come from a panel of Disney Professional Internship recruiters.

  1. Networking Emails: When writing a networking email of connecting through LinkedIn, it is critical to tell you story in a short, effective paragraph. A great way to think of this is as a written version of your 30-second elevator speech.
  2. LinkedIn: Keep your LinkedIn profile up-to-date with your specific skills, a complete profile, and a professional photos. Recruiters will use LinkedIn to find candidates for hard-to-fill positions.
  3. ResumesEnsure your resume has all required skills necessary for the position you are applying for listed. Recruiters flip through resumes in three second intervals. For advice about resumes, please schedule an appointment with a Career Advisor.
  4. Initial Interview: First-round interviews are a huge weed out for Recruiters. They will ask you general questions, as well as questions targeted more towards your specific role. For help preparing for the interview, schedule a mock interview with the Butles CaPS Office.
  5. Hiring Leaders: If you are not confident in yourself, the Recruiters won't be either. Speak to your experience and prepare thoroughly for your interviews.
  6. Mistakes: There are plenty of common mistakes people make during interviews. For example, if you are applying for an internship as ESPN, don't tell the recruiter you "Aren't a sports fan." Additionally, make sure to pause, breathe and avoid "ums."
  7. Following Up. After your internship ends, be sure to write a thoughtful thank you note that references something from the interview. Additionally, you may want to include, "Please let me know if I can provide any information to make your decision easier." This opens communication and allows a Recruiter to express concerns they have about you.
