I recently applied for a summer internship as a Software Developer at an automotive company in the UK.
The first stage of the application was your personal details, academic and employment history; nothing more.
After "passing" that stage, I got asked to complete their "application form". However, the linked PDF was nothing more than a blank piece of paper, with a comment in the corner of:
Be creative, and think outside the box
Given I was applying as a Software Developer and not an artist, I really didn't know what to do. What would be expected of me in this situation?
- Split up the paper myself into "normal" CV categories?
- Write/ demonstrate some code on the paper?
- An arrow pointing off the page labelled "me"?
