Looking For An Internship? #InternsWanted At Mastercard

Have you ever tried searching for a job on Twitter? There are lots of opportunities out there if you know where to look. The same goes for internships – and Mastercard is making it simple to find theirs on Twitter.

They’ve launched an #InternsWanted search and the person they’re looking for may just be you!

Mastercard is on the hunt for interns with “big cashless ideas” to work with them this coming summer.

What’s this all about?

Applicants are asked to submit an idea for a product, system, app or technique that can help people go cashless in the future. Successful candidates will validate their application through social media using #InternsWanted— the more likes and retweets, the better the chances for success.

So it’s one part popularity contest, two parts free promotion for Mastercard and it equals a fabulous opportunity for whoever wins – and is good at math.

Anyway, students can apply by “submitting their cover letter and resume along with creative entries, including photos, blog posts and videos on LinkedIn.”

The program will be held in six countries starting with the U.S. and Canada followed by Turkey, Italy, Singapore and China for internships in emerging payments, technology, marketing, product management and issuer management.

In the U.S., the campaign runs from March 14 to April 10, 2013 and in Canada, it started a week earlier and ends on April 7, 2013. Winners from either country will be notified on April 15.

And according to its job post on LinkedIn, there are only two positions open – and the lucky winners will join Mastercard’s Emerging Payments group. So let’s watch as U.S. and Canadian college students battle it out!

So do you have what it takes to win? Are you creative? Nimble? Have a good appetite? Yeah, I don’t know about those last two either, but watch the video and it will (kind of) make sense:
