Last Minute Tips for the TechWomen Mentee Application

Apply to be a 2012 TechWomen Mentee!

With the TechWomen application deadline less than one week away, we thought we would offer several tips as candidates put the final touches on their applications. Remember, the deadline for submitting applications is 23:59 Cairo time, February 15, 2012.

Exceptional candidates will excel in all the areas of consideration: professional and academic qualifications in technical fields, demonstrated leadership potential, commitment to professional development, English language proficiency, exemplary letters of recommendation, record of voluntary or public service in their communities, and evidence of adaptability and motivation.

The best place to highlight the above criteria is in your essays. We recommend that you use this space wisely and elaborate on your accomplishments. Remember, the application and letters of recommendation should give the selection committees a complete understanding of who you are so be sure to include all information you would like them to consider in the application.

  1. Hello,

    The 15 February 2012 deadline was for last year’s application; this year’s deadline is 22 February 2013. In addition to providing some last minute reminders, we linked back to a blog posted last year because it contained some tips for those looking for advice to strengthen their applications. We apologize for any confusion.

    Best regards,

    The TechWomen Team

  2. this Blog post says deadline is 15 February and your website says 22 February, can you please make a clarification of which is the correct date.
