Show Off Your Accomplishments

One of the best ways to use any online portfolio is to show off what you have done in school and with your extracurricular activities. Applying for internships can be different than applying for college in several key ways. First, your grades may not be as important for an internship as the classes you are taking and what your future plans are. Second, your extracurriculars may be the most important factor in determining whether or not you are right for an internship.

While transcripts are great, instead of sending off a mess of papers, use the Lifestream Digital Memory Box to include copies of your projects, reports, and photos to really show the selection committee what you can do. Our digital portfolio gives you the flexibility to include different kinds of files in order to present the best holistic view of your qualifications.

Let Them Know How You Can Help

Use the Lifestream Digital Memory Box as a living, breathing resume. While many applicants will send in an application that just covers the bare minimum, our online portfolio allows you to create a dynamic picture of you and your abilities. What these internships are looking for is someone who is capable of conceptualizing and bringing a project to life. While you will be learning a lot of valuable new skills, they want someone who comes to the table with real skills and talent. Your digital portfolio is a great way to show that you are the right choice for the internship.
