After spending those weeks and months in preparation building out your network and gathering information, it’s time to now start sending out those applications. A lot of students when sending out applications will have that one dream company in mind and build out the perfect application for their dream company. There is absolutely nothing wrong with giving your 110% for your dream company and if you put in the time building relationships at that specific company, there is a high chance you may have increased your chances of landing an interview through a referral or connection. However, it’s also important to keep in mind that most of the time these applications will be a numbers game for many companies. Thus, it’s important to cast your net wide and send out as many applications as you can in order to increase your chances at receiving responses and interviews.
