Be sure to provide an extensive portfolio, showing the quality of your best work, but also the diversity of your skills, plus your CV and cover letter.

Note that an internship is not the same as a junior job. An internship is a full-time learning position, usually for a period of 4 to 5 months, and usually as a mandatory part of an education. An internship pays a small monthly financial compensation and is far below a full job’s salary.
