Natty Light looking to fill sweet summer intern gig
When you get back to college in the fall, you will surely be asked by friends: “What did you do over the summer?”
If the answer to that is anything other than, “I was a summer intern for Natty Light,” then you have failed at summer.
That’s right: The crew at Natural Light beer is looking for someone to be their Summer Intern in their New York City offices.
It’s a paid position — although the job listing doesn’t say how much you’ll be paid. But Thrillist found out — via a Natural Light spokesperson — the gig pays about $40 an hour for an eight-week period, which translates to about $12,800.
Not bad for a job where one of the requirements is to “just be cool.”
The company dropped a video on YouTube as a recruitment tool.
Well, Leon did the video — and it’s obvious the company isn’t taking things too seriously.
Nice job, Leon! (Even dropping a Pat McAffee reference! Strong.)
Among the things you’ll be asked to do: Attend social events as an “ambassador of the brand,” take on social media, do some guerilla marketing, design “some sick swag,” and product research. That last one is important, because the official job listing says “it’s what you think it is” — and that means drink product.
Want to apply? Of course you do! Well, here — don’t say we never gave you anything. Good luck.
