I subscribe to my Algonquin College PR alumni listserv (go grads of ’98!), and yesterday received an email about an eight-week PR internship contest featured in the National Post.
If you’re an ’07, ’08 or ’09 PR grad looking for an internship opportunity, then Maverick Public Relations Inc wants to see what you’re made of by having you audition for its first ever Maverick Idol competition (more details at the blog of Maverick founder and president Julie Rusciolelli.)
The “idol” contest will be held May 20th in Toronto at Maverick’s offices, with the winner receiving an eight-week PR internship.
If you participate, you have two minutes to demonstrate to judges (Maverick’s senior leadership team) why you’re the perfect fit for the internship. Those who “leave the right impression” will be called back for a final judging round later that day (where you’ll get five minutes to blow the judges’ socks off).
As Ms. Rusciolelli states on her blog:
Candidates can read, sing, dance, bring in their mother or father, use sock puppets – we don’t care, as long as they give the judges a reason to advance them to the question stage of the competition.
Maverick Idol is open to residents of Canada. Keep up to date on Maverick Idol news on Twitter by following @ScottyMac.
