: What about you and your application do you think you separated you from all the other applicants who applied for your respective internship?
Thank you to all who replied. Here is what I gathered from your responses: 1. Be passionate about what you want to do. 2. Display who you are in am original manner that paints a picture of yourself in which Riot would want to have. 3. You don't necessarily have to do something extraordinary, just represent yourself in an extraordinary manner. I believe that about covers what you all have said and if I have missed something please let me know. Thanks again for the responses they were well worded and I am thankful you took the time to right them.
: I've said this a few times in this thread but I'll say it again because I think it's so important! I think what separates those who get jobs and internships and those who don't is how well they're able to represent themselves through their skills and experience. Many people think that they need to do something crazy for their Riot applications because that's what they saw on Reddit one time, but that isn't necessarily the case. Being creative and fun is definitely a plus when it comes to Riot, but don't feel like a offbeat application is your only route. For me, what I think got me the job was the fact that I had already been doing what I loved for a year. I was volunteering with community sites and working on community shows. I knew what I wanted to do and I had the knowledge, skills, and experience to back it up. Figure out what you'd like to do and start working on it right now! You're only going to put yourself ahead of the curve and really be able to showcase your passion.
Thank you for responding. Your whole idea about not necessarily having to do something extraordinary, just having to present yourself in a way that separates you from everyone else is really interesting and I enjoyed reading your thoughts.

: Hmm, this is definitely a tough question, as I asked myself that when I first submitted my application. I think specifically to me, I've had a crapton of work experience prior to this internship (~2 years), as well as a lot of League community experience and just League experience altogether. All of these experiences make my case specifically unique. But other than that, I'm really not sure how different I am than anyone else. I guess I'm just really hyper-passionate and super enthusiastic about everything League-related (eSports, etc), so that might be a big part of it too? I'm also really big into self-improvement and self-awareness. Knowing that I'm never going to be perfect, and knowing that I always want to be learning something I think was a big part of what set me apart? I'm not sure how self-aware most people are, so maybe I'm just sounding arrogant at this point. Sorry! Hope this helped! :)
Sorry for the tough question, just seemed like a chance to be able to pick your guys' brains. However, thank you for the response, it was an informative answer which I enjoyed reading.
: I think one of the most important things is being able to display your character, personality, and abilities through something as 2D as your resume. Whether that means adding extra masterfully created videos displaying cool projects you've done or pitching something you think would level up Riot as a whole. It's hard to give a straight forward answer but something to think about is this. Does simply submitting your cover letter and resume really give a recruiter a good enough picture of you and all you have to offer. Be professional but have fun with it. Hope this help!
That makes a lot of sense and is a very informative. Thank you for the response and congratulations on getting the internship!!!!!
