For each project make sure to include: 

  • Your problem: Describe the challenge
  • Your solution
  • Your process to get there
  • Your role in this project - What was your superpower

Projects can be team projects or individual projects. We highly recommend a combination of both. Also, be visual, use your own style, and avoid long, dense texts. Instead, we encourage you to use creative formats to showcase your skills.

  • a file (in the space of the cover letter) 
  • or as a link in the last question
