How much compensation is offered? (“None” is not appropriate compensation from a major corporation for university-level internships, with few exceptions.)*]Are there any restrictions on the immigration statuses (above and beyond work authorization) or citizenships of the applicants?
A good job posting will include these things, or a brief explanation of why they’re not provided.
As an applicant, consider the list of items a “want” list. A job poster may say it is a “requirement”, but in reality it is often a want or desire. Seldom can an applicant be found that meets every single detail within the grade they are asking for. My recommendation is to apply and let the recruiter sort out whether or not you meet the needs. Worst case scenario, you are not accepted and wasted the time of the application, which in the grand scheme of things is not a big waste.
As an applicant, it is your responsibility to just be truthful about your skills and qualificiations. If you are enrolled to attend LTU in the Fall, then just be certain to say so. If you “do not meet requirements”, you can often try to talk up other aspects of your personal experience in a cavoer letter (again, more work, but often well worth it). For instance, if I was HS grad going for this job, I would have a paragraph about the design and engineering experience I got through Projects that might be relevant. With a cover letter, keep it to just a few paragraphs. Why you want the job, What you have to offer, Why you think you would be a good fit…
To add an example to what Isaac is talking about here:
Two years ago my company had a high school student as an intern (you know him as apalrd here on chiefdelphi). The key to getting him in here was to make the company aware of the experience he gained by being involved with his FIRST team. He was able to demonstrate his experience enough to convince us that he would be valuable as an intern, and we were very happy with him.
If you have some applicable experience that you got as a part of your team (or somewhere else), then be sure to highlight it.
