To make the most of your introduction video, follow these guidelines:
Introduction: introduce yourself generally, talk about where you are from, what studies you are following and talk about what kind of internship you are looking for and in what country.
Your why: talk about why you are pursuing an internship abroad and what you are looking to get out of this experience.
Passion and Motivation: Express your genuine passion for the field and the specific internship country you want to go to, explaining why you are motivated to pursue it and why you are the right candidate.
Conciseness: Keep your video within the recommended duration of 1 to 3 minutes to ensure it remains engaging and you are not using fluffy words.
