Applying for Summer Camp is easy. But, if you ace your Summer Camp profile, you’ll land your dream job that bit quicker!
Thousands of people head out to camp in America every year, so how can you stand out in the crowd?
We’ve put together a handy guide to help make sure you ace your Summer Camp profile.
They say a picture paints a thousand words. When it comes to your Summer Camp profile picture, it really does.
After you apply for Summer Camp, you’ll need to add a picture to your profile.
Camp Director’s really want to see a nice, professional looking headshot of you smiling and looking happy.
Don’t add filters or special effects. The people who view your profile want to see you, not a filter!
It’s really important to highlight your skills, hobbies, and interests on your Summer Camp profile.
You’ll need to show how passionate you are about the skills you choose.
If you’re good at what you do then make sure that Camp Directors can see that!
Talking about your own skills is one thing, but having other people back you up is important.
Choose the people you put down as a reference carefully. Be sure to ask people who really know you well.
A referee will often ‘sell you’ far better than you could ever do yourself, so be sure to use this to your advantage.
When you’re filling out your profile, you need to set the dates that you’re available to work over the summer.
We work with more than 500 Summer Camps in America and they all have slightly different start and end dates.
By knowing what your availability is for the summer, we’ll be able to match you with the perfect camp.
There are lots of different types of Summer Camp, and you’ll be able to highlight your preferences.
By highlighting your preferences, we’ll be able to work to get you the best job at camp possible!
Unless you’re coming to a Placement Fair, it’s virtually impossible for Camp Directors to interview you face to face.
They log into their database with specific skills in mind and they’re be looking at people’s profiles for them.
A great way to stand out from the crowd is to add a Showcase video to your Summer Camp profile.
The video doesn’t need to be edited in a fancy way, but you should talk about your skills and show your personality.
Camp Directors tell us that a Showcase Video can really swing an application from a maybe to a must hire!
