Project skills key

Each project will require a different level of experience with different skills.

Experience level: You do not need to be an expert to apply. Each project will need a different skill experience level:

No knowledge required
Concepts
Experimented
Comfortable
Challenge

Required skills: You don't need to have all project skills in order to apply. Each project skill will be listed as:

Required Mentors will only select you as an intern if you have this skill
Preferred Mentors prefer to select an intern who has this skill, but they may select you if you don't have this skill
Nice to have Mentors will select you, even if you don't have this skill

If you're unsure whether you have the project skills needed, reach out the mentor via email and ask them. It's better to ask than to not apply!
