    How many in a day, week, month, whatever? Placement as in year in industry placement. I started doing 1 a day but now I've lost all motivation having to do those tedious applications everyday and instead I'm to try and do 1 a week instead.

    I did about 1 per week / per 2 weeks - they're worth investing time into, showing genuine interest in the field/company, checking for errors in application etc. It'll pay off eventually, just keep persisting. I rushed mine early on and never heard back as a result.

    Somewhere between once every few days to once every two weeks. It's much more important to tailor an application to a company than to send out lots of the same stuff.

    Ideally you'll be in the situation where you have a good idea which companies would be best for you already but that's not always the case.
