Share Your Expertise
We use video to share experiences and insights with potential students, supervisors, and universities. We share videos on EUSA's social media channels, this website, in presentations, and for other marketing purposes.
We are very proud of the care and dedication of the internship supervisors who welcome our students into their organizations and help develop their professional skills and give them invaluable experience in a new culture.
Think about what you want to say before you shoot the video.
You can use the questions below as a starting point. When appropriate, please talk about a specific intern, past or present. If you currently have a EUSA intern in your organization, you may want to include them in some of your video.
- Introduce yourself and describe your organization.
- What are typical intern responsibilities in your organization?
- What makes an internship "good" - what steps do you take as a supervisor to help interns have a good experience?
- Share an example of an intern whose professional skills improved noticeably during their internship.
- What types of meaningful contributions have intern(s) made to your organization?
- What is the most memorable moment from your work with interns?
- What was the intern’s main accomplishment?
- How does the intern compare to candidates who apply for employment in your organization?
- How did an intern from another country influence your workplace culture/dynamic?
- What are the specific benefits to of hosting an international intern?
- How do you think interning with your organization will help the intern as they enter the job market?
We aren't looking for professionally shot videos - just something that shows your face and voice clearly.
We'll edit the videos - we may share very brief clips or combine them with other submissions to create a longer video, so please start a new recording for each question or topic.
The basics for recording a good video:
- You can use the default camera app on your smartphone, or use any of the freely available apps for Mac, iOS, Windows, or Android such as Photo Booth, iMovie, or Google Camera
- Videos need to be taken in landscape orientation (sideways), and not upright
- Tripods and stabilizers might help you keep your phone steady, but if you don't have them on hand, you can steady your camera by propping it against a book or something similar
- Do a short test video and then answer these questions:
- Is your face well-lit and visible? If not, make sure that the source of light is not behind your back. Stay close to the camera, and shoot from the waist up.
- Can you hear yourself clearly at a normal volume setting? Record yourself in a quiet surrounding, without background noise if possible. If not, choose another location.
Please name the video files this way:
So if your name were Emma Smith and you work at The Big Bank in London, name the file EmmaSmithBigBankLondon.mp4 (or .vid, .mov or whatever format your video recording application uses).
If you submit multiple videos, just add 2, 3, 4, etc to the file name.
Once you've named and saved the files just drag them on to this screen to upload them.
By uploading these files, you give EUSA permission to edit and share these videos on our website, social media channels, in presentations, or other marketing and advising purposes. EUSA may share, or not share, the files at its discretion.
