You have to know your stuff so you can integrate your current skills with the internship you’re applying for as well as impress your employers. This will also help you greatly should they offer you an interview.

A resume is the biggest part of your application. You must make sure your resume meets all the qualifications the employer is looking for as well as presents all your best assets and past work experiences to the fullest.

Your cover letter is of equal importance. For a lot of applicants, this is how they introduce themselves. Think of it as your employer’s first impression of you. You have to write a comprehensive one and present yourself as a more than qualified candidate.
