Save Time With Internship Applications By Sending Your Resume Straight to the Trash


With the semester almost over, Penn students are on the final sprint to send out as many applications as possible to try to net a summer internship. From big-name companies like McKinsey and Tesla, down to random unknown start-ups, Penn students are desperate to get mentally and physically exploited for low pay and experience. 

You can save yourself the time of submitting the application and the recruiter the time of reading the application by throwing your application straight into the trash. You already know that your application is going to end up in the shredder at the respective companies, so all you need to do is be one step ahead of them. Companies will appreciate your forward-thinking and might even take your initiative into account when they consider your application.
