Here’re some tips for the application process:
1. Be Neat!
I remembered using Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill up the Application form repeatedly. It was a painful process as the file was not user-friendly. I printed out the document and used my neatest handwriting to fill up the form, and that was 3 years ago. I hope that you could now easily use software to fill up the form. Nothing pisses off an administrator if he/she can’t read what you are writing.
2. Check your documents before submitting!
Check that you have all the documents before submitting. You may have to forfeit your chance for any missing documents. You may want to note that it’s not the administrator's responsibility to tell you that you have missed out a paper. Your application may just be rejected.
我记得使用Microsoft Word和Adobe Acrobat Reader重复填写申请表。 这是一个痛苦的过程，因为该文件不方便使用。 我打印出文件并使用我最好的笔迹来填写表格。这是3年前的事。 我希望您现在可以轻松使用软件来填写表单。
在提交之前检查您是否准备好所有文件。 管理员没有责任告诉您忘了一些文件， 因此您的申请可能会被拒绝。
HOW TO SURVIVE THE FIRST INTERVIEW?
Before the first interview, we were told to dress comfortably, preferably in pants and covered shoes. This is an obvious clue that there would be some hands-on activities during the interview. Around 50 youths turned up on the day of the event, and indeed we were split into teams for team bonding exercises. We even had to come up with a performance by the end of the day. In the midst of all the activities, the National Leader (NL) and NYC representatives would be giving you eye power, in other words, observing you. I would assume you know what to do, right?
The interview is similar to almost every other job interviews. Why did you join the programme? How could you contribute to the team? Blah blah blah... They could direct a question to the party too. The keyword here is TEAMWORK! Learn to agree to disagree.
在第一次面试之前，我们被告知穿着舒适，最好穿着裤子和鞋子。 这是一个明显的线索，在面试过程中会有一些实践活动。 活动当天约有50名年轻人出现。 国家领导人（NL）和纽约市代表都会观察您。
面试与几乎所有其他面试相似。 为什么你要加入该计划？ 你能为队做出贡献吗？ 等等。。。。。。 他们也可以向党派提问。 这里的关键字是TEAMWORK！
