Midnight on Sunday, April 8, 2012.

Video Details
Shoot a video of up to two minutes that shows us and our Facebook fans why you’re right for the job. Make us laugh, make us cry…we don’t care as long as you “wow” us. Upload the video to YouTube and send us the link here.

Facebook Voting
We’ll pick the finalists and post the videos from each of them on our Summer Internship Campaign Facebook page. Then we’ll open up the voting to our Facebook fans. Whichever candidate earns the most “likes” gets the gig.

Hustling for “likes” is definitely encouraged. Good marketers know how to market themselves. So if you get tapped as a finalist, go ahead and campaign for votes. Get your friends, family and others to “like” The Fast Horse Experience and then “like” you.
