When reviewing applicants, we look to a number of factors, including:
- Passion and Dedication: We look for applicants who have the energy and willingness to commit to an intense and demanding internship, on top of their school commitments. We expect our Crew to become Team Leaders and/or Junior Consultants, and take their own initiative to improve and contribute to the organization in unique ways.
- Interpersonal Skills: We care deeply about finding candidates who have integrity, initiative, leadership, reliability, courtesy, composure, concise & effective communication skills, and analytical ability.
- Industry Experience: We learn from each other, so we seek candidates who have experience in entrepreneurship, technology, engineering, operations, marketing/sales, law (especially intellectual property law), or experience in other arenas that developed skills transferable to LAUNCH.
While we do not seek to fill specific quotas for any of the programs, we recognize that one of the strengths of LAUNCH is our diversity across different schools/disciplines and our balance of graduating and first-year/earlier year students, which brings stability and continuity. However, first and foremost, we seek applicants who embody the spirit of LAUNCH.
