FAQ H&M Summer Internship for Business/Engineering students
What files do you want me to attach to my application?
We want you to upload your CV, personal letter and your grades from gymnasium/high school and university together with a description of the grading system in your application. You don’t need to attach any written references in this step in the recruitment process.
Should I write my application in Swedish or English?
Please write your application in English.
My files with CV, personal letter and grades are too heavy to upload. What should I do?
Try to save the documents together in one file, preferably in PDF or zip format. If the attachment is still too heavy to upload you can make a notification about that in your personal letter and we will then ask for the attachments later in the process.
I get an error message when I send in the application, what should I do?
The error message may be due to system maintenance, please try again later.

Do I need to speak Swedish to apply?
No, you don't need to speak Swedish to be eligible for the Summer Internship. English is mandatory, and any additional languages are meriting.
How likely is it to be employed after the internship?
