What are some examples of content for the video?
A pitch consists of a 3-minute oral presentation, in English, with no audiovisual support, intended for the receiving host and whose purpose is to convey why he/she is the right person for the internship. The pitch should include important content such as:
1 - Personal introduction;
2 - Motivations - Why is the internship with this host important for you?;
3. Qualifications - Why should the host choose you?;
4. How do you see yourself in 10 years?;
5. Closing remarks.
What are we looking for?
Consider your pitch in three dimensions. Content, Clarity and Charisma.
Your content should reflect specific objectives, answering the main appointed questions. Your answers should be relevant and exact regarding the internship. Motivation is something hosts hold dearly and as such should also be taken into account.
As to clarity, a fluent and coherent pitch with appropriate vocal placement and pronunciation is generally essential to convey your message. We will also be on the lookout for your lexical resources.
Charismatic pitches are a sure way to grab attention so be sure to look confident and decisive. Creativity is valued since you’ll be competing with many others for the same internship. Also, don't forget to be careful with your body language.
Can I apply to both?
Each Pitch may only be directed at a single internship vacancy. In case the participant intends to apply for both vacancies, two different pitch submissions are required. Preference of internship must be appointed as the applicant may only win one internship. In case both submissions pass to the final phase, in Jury B, only the preferred destination may be presented.
What are the accepted video formats and what email adress should I send it to?
The accepted video formats will be .wmv, .mp4, and .avi. You must send the video to email@example.com.
What happens next?
After submission, the video will be assessed by Jury A, responsible for finding the 5 best videosfor each internship, subject to the Host’s approval. Three of these will pass on to the final competition, on the iMed Conference 12.0, where you'll have to present your pitch to the audience and jury B, in charge of rewarding the winning pitches, one for each internship.
When will the internship take place?
The start date of the internship will be decided according to both the student’s and the Host’s availability and must take place until 31st December 2021.
Can the internship duration be extended?
The duration of the internship is by default two weeks, however, its extent may be subject to change as long as both parties involved, the Host and the participant, agree with such terms.
