How do you ask for an internship
Posted on 2008-11-16
I want to do my internship in a video game company.
I do not know if the company offers internship position in the field that I want. I am interested in path finding algorithms, AI, game engine,multicore programing. Basically I want to learn what makes a game tick and tack. (Math, Math, Math and Math).
Here is my question:
1. Do I sent a letter without a resume asking them if they offer an internship position and sent my resume later if they confirm that they offer an internship position, or do I include my resume in the first letter?
2. If they answer that they do not offer such a position and if you have not sent them your resume with the first letter what will happen if you sent it anyway? Is there a chance that they can change their position (if it has nothing to do with their budget) from something you have done?
