Can you rock social media like a microphone? Imagine getting paid for those networking skills. Well, this September Oakley South Africa is running an exclusive Facebook search for The Oakley Intern. So if you’re able to entice engagement out of your network of jaded, rebellious and apathetic young tastemakers, you just might be a candidate to join Oakley’s marketing team at the Cape Town HQ in Jan 2012.
The position will involve attending events, sports matches, parties and much more as an Oakley VIP Intern and communicating the experiences through their social media and online platforms. The candidate has the opportunity to learn sports and brand marketing skills whilst sharing their knowledge of the online world.
And if that sounds a lot like work, here’s the kicker! Besides all that valuable experience you will receive R30 000 in prize money, R10k’s worth of Oakley eyewear and accessories, a Blackberry Playbook to keep in touch and as much Vida coffee as you can drink…
To apply, all you have to do is prove the power of your creativity and submit a made-up CV for the best job you’ve NEVER had. Visit the Oakley SA Facebook page, ‘like’ the page , click on the Intern App on the left hand taskbar and upload your fake CV. The application with the most votes gets an all expenses paid trip to Cape Town for a real interview .
The campaign starts on the 2nd of September and will run until the end of November. The Oakley Intern will start their new job in Jan 2012.
“Working within the Oakley Marketing Team, the successful intern will be our ‘social media guru’ and the voice of Oakley South Africa online. They will be tasked to attend events, spend time with our athletes and key internal staff, and then communicate this via Facebook, twitter and dedicated blogs.
The ‘job’ also includes online competition management and ‘online innovation’.
i.e.” Implementing new and innovative ways of keeping the relationship going with the Oakley online community” says Oakley Brand Manager, Taryn Ryan. “It’s an awesome opportunity for someone in the early stages of their career to make their mark and get ahead.”
