The video is designed to personalize your application and bring it to life. Think of it as an elevator pitch or your personal statement since the application process does not include an interview. Please share why you want to join us at the DC Leadership Summit, what you most look forward to, and how it would impact your life.
Here are a few additional tips:
We recommend preparing what you want to say and practicing it several times before recording a final version. While your attire is not the most important factor, we encourage you to be professional and show the application committee that you take this incredible opportunity seriously. Eye contact, confidence, and posture can dramatically improve your presentation. There is no need, however, to purchase a brand new suit. Furthermore, neither the background nor film quality will be factor into the selection process, unless it is impossible to see the subject or hear the audio feed. Videos must be understandable and clear, but there is no need to use professional production equipment.
