Affect Strategies has opened The New York Intern Project for entries. Prospects should go to the Project’s website and explain why they would make a great intern with both a written essay and a photo or video by April 8. The selected intern will get a three-month position in New York, a $5,000 housing stipend, and $5,000 spending money. Wethinks that should fall within the PRSA guidelines.
Four judges will help with the decision: Guy Kawasaki, Alltop and Garage Technology Ventures founder; Mashable’s Erica Swallow; Sandra Fathi, Affect’s founder and president; and Leslie Campisi, VP and partner for the agency.
Six semi-finalists will be chosen by the public and then two final rounds, including one where the finalists are flown to NYC for an interview with the judges.
Among the tasks that the winning intern will perform, he or she will help plan and execute an event, attend industry events, and tour a newsroom.
Good luck to all the applicants.
