Instructions for Applying
In addition to your resume, you must write a custom one-page cover letter. If the website you're using to apply doesn't allow you to attach a separate cover letter, combine it with your resume into a single document. This is extremely important, as you will not be considered without a cover letter. This ensures you can follow directions and have read all the way down to here. ☺
We'll read your cover letter first, so really personalize it and let it showcase your personality and strengths. This should not be a stiff, boilerplate piece of writing. Be real, be yourself, and make us want to learn more about you. Stand out from the crowd!
(Seriously, we eliminate any applicant who doesn’t follow these cover letter instructions. Don't skip it.)
