Why do I want to write about this topic

Therefore, I began to apply the internship of some companies which I am interested in. What’s interesting is the different applying process those companies apply. Some only asked for my CV by e-mail, some required me to go to their office space to fill in a lot of information form, and some even asked me to do an online test. This difference inspire my thinking. I realized that how many information they acquired from me will indeed affect their selection and it’s troublesome for me to go to the office space comparing with sitting in front of computer. Those company who can make good use of internet procedure can save a lot of effort on selection.
