Fast Horse Summer Intern search is on!

Minneapolis consumer marketing agency Fast Horse has announced that it is making its Facebook Summer Intern Search an annual competition after landing an awesome intern and generating a ton of positive feedback through the first-of-its-kind competition last year.  
The 2011 competition kicks off this week, with the agency looking to hire an intern who can conceive, design and build a variety of digital assets for Fast Horse and its clients: a hybrid designer/developer. To apply, you must submit a resume and video "cover letter" (three minutes tops) to by May 31 at 9:00 a.m. Applicants are encouraged to have fun with the video, using the opportunity to display their creativity and personality, while convincing Fast Horse they’re the right person for the job.
Here's where it gets interesting: Fast Horse’s review panel will interview top candidates and select finalists -- then hire each of them for a contract position as part of the competition. Each finalist will then be given a creative brief, hired on a project basis and paid to build Fast Horse “something cool” that helps market the agency. Once those projects are completed, Fast Horse will put them up for a vote, again letting its Facebook community vote for the winner. The candidate who created the most “liked” project will become the newest Fast Horse intern.  
Entrants must be a college graduate as of July 25 (when Fast Horse expects the hired intern to start working). The Internship is a paid, full-time, three-month gig, but may lead to a permanent position. Last year’s Fast Horse Facebook Summer Internship winner, Andrew Miller, is currently a full-time employee.
