I’ve consciously tried to avoid writing an essay for this post – preferring to show you my application instead. So here’s a very quick introduction to my Red Bull Racing internship application…
As you may or may not be aware, I’m a bit of a marketing/graphics geek, so simply writing a traditional CV was never going to be an option. Instead I’ve tried to create something that I hope will showcase my individually and stand out from the hundreds of applications they must have received.
My idea was pretty simple; take a trait from each of this season’s circuits and compare it to a similar trait of my own. For example, Malaysia requires a great deal of perseverance from the drivers, as did this application for me!
I went on to create a standard ‘2012 F1 Circuit Guide’ and then added a note to each track referencing a different characteristic that I felt gave you an insight into my skills, hobbies, personality etc…
The finished result is a PDF which is viewable on any computer, but looks particularly nice when displayed on a tablet, such as an iPad.
On the actual application form I drew the outline of an iPad, with a QR code in the centre for accessing the guide simply and quickly. Around this I included some of my notes from my initial brainstorming ideas.
Here’s a quick video to show you how the whole thing comes together:
Since the deadline date has now passed, if anyone else is prepared to show their application then please leave a comment in the box below. Thanks!
