One-page autobiography

    I'm a junior at Ohio State, applying for reporting internships at some metropolitan daily newspapers. A couple of these papers want me to send along with a resume, clips, cover letter, etc. a one-page autobiography. I'm wondering if anyone else on here has had to do something similar and if they have any advice on how I could stand out in just one page.

    The entire key to the application process for interns who are still in college is to write something that grabs the people reading the application. Rare is the intern candidate who is truly more qualified based on experience and resume than anyone else, so you've got to shoot for other ways to make your name remembered.

    What's unique about you?

    He is smart enough not to say "The" Ohio State for starters. :)
