TIPS AND

GUIDELINES  The number of questions is small, and questions are general. So, make an effort to go into depth. That’s why there’s no limit to the length of the application or the answers. Still, be straight to the point.  Avoid phrases that are vacuous like “increasing capacity”, “generating strategies”, “improving the systems” or the like. Be specific and detailed.  Good grammar and spelling are indeed fundamental; do not waste time in design.  All questions can be also answered with drawings, tables, diagrams, graphs… you’re free to do so. Text alone (but good text) can be enough for the most part though.

You can always contact aldo.perez@aiesec.net for clarification.
