Video Introduction (Optional):
Though not required, we would love to meet your sooner than later! If you are comfortable doing so, we would love to see a 2-3 minute introduction video of yourself and your interest with our internship. It does not have to be a high quality production, you can use your phone or your webcam. Once you have finished the video you can upload it to YouTube (we would suggest making it unlisted and not public) or Vimeo (we would suggest making it password protected and make the password: activelamp). We know some people hate being on camera, this is why we made this optional, but it is extremely helpful to us to get to know you better if you are willing to do it!
