What to do if the company says, “we are not looking to hire junior people at this stage”?

Potential answer:

Dear [their first name].

I hope you’re having a fantastic Friday.

Thank you for your response. I appreciate you getting back to me. I understand that there may not be any junior level opportunities at the moment.

I am a little bit curious though. Are there any projects that the team haven’t had the time to complete, but could drive the business forward? If there is an opportunity to assist with any of these, even on an internship basis, I’d love to help!

Here are some examples of things that I could help you with:

  • Generating SQL reports
  • Developing dashboards in Tableau for presentation of insights
  • Statistical analysis of data in Python
  • Data Collection and Data Management (Web Scraping, API’s, SQL)
  • Competetitor analysis
  • General data analysis

As you can see, I would love to help the team out in any capacity. If not, I totally understand.

Thanks again.

[your first name]
