SIParCS Tips for References
So you’re applying for a SIParCS Internship for Summer 2021 and you’re prepping your materials: making sure your letter of interest clearly addresses all five questions, polishing your CV/Resume, downloading your unofficial school transcripts. What am I missing?
In addition to the required application materials, you must submit the contact information for TWO (2) references. Not sure where to start? Here’s a helpful article about Asking for Letters of Recommendation.
Q: Who can be a reference?
Q: What happens after I submit the names and contact info for my 2 references?
Q: I’m not ready to submit my application through Workday yet. When should I submit my references’ contact information?
Q: What is the deadline to submit a letter?
Q: A student listed me as a reference, what file format do you want my letter to be?
For those who have already applied or submitted your letters of reference, thank you! Please consider passing this email on to other students who may be interested in an internship at NCAR this summer. International Students who are eligible to work in the U.S. are welcomed and encouraged to apply.
As always, if you have any questions about the program or the application process, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-497-1288.
