Starboard SUP - Summer Internship Competition

Should you be the winner of the of the Ultimate Sports Marketing & PR Summer Internship Competition, you will be spending January working with Starboard SUPSNZ (the home of Stand Up Paddle boarding in New Zealand) and their international marketing strategy consultant they have flown in for the summer (the beach, waves, SUP – it wasn’t hard to convince her) to drive awareness & participation of the world’s fastest growing water sport, Stand Up Paddling in... (read more)

To give someone the 'leg up' they need to put some dazzling experience on their CV and create the pathway to a career of dizzying heights (all our lecturers told us that at university didn't they???)

Seriously - this will be an internship with a difference
Stand Up Paddle boards of course!
Backing a trailer (if you can back a trailer, we’ll assume you’ve got your full license)

As you’ll likely need to drive around in one of our sponsors brand spanking new vehicles, a full license is a must. Your ability to park & back a trailer may also come in handy (girls we won’t hold this against you).

Board shorts & bikinis
You’ll be spending a hell of a lot of time at the beach so it’ll be a case of BYO beach gear

Social Media Fantasia
You’ll be so quick at logging FB posts & tweets that snap, crackle & pop is how you described the crunchy nut cornflakes you just had for breakfast 1.08 seconds ago

A love for boats, water, parties & great people
You’ll be part of the Endless Summer of SUP’s world tour, be rocking with the Hyundai Pro Long Board Tour and surrounded by the best watermen & women from around the world so being prepared to get amongst and give it a go as well is a given.

Should you win the The Ultimate Sports Marketing & PR Summer Internship Competition you’ll need to be available from mid-January until the end of February which gives you just enough time to recover from the Rhythm & Vines road trip.
You’ll be based in Auckland, New Zealand
How to enter
The winner of this internship will be all about social media, writing stories, drumming up publicity – so we’d like you to start by showing us just exactly how you are going to do this.

So………………we’ll be looking for:
A social media campaign and PR plan that will shock your lecturers and make national news headlines (we love a bit of shock factor – just don’t go breaking any laws and keep it in the interest of good taste).
You might do this in a number of ways, but you’ll probably put together

A YouTube clip and post it to our FB page
telling us exactly why you deserve to win Ultimate Sports Marketing & PR Summer Internship.

You’ll probably also bribe all your mates into signing up for one of our Rock Up & SUP sessions (so they can wonder how the hell you scored such a hot summer job).

You’ll impress us with your plan about how you are going to be part of the world’s fastest growing water sports (and all the great contacts you have to leverage….and bribe)

We’ll be awarding Brownie Points for the following………..
Getting all your friends to help you win by getting them to join our FB page
