Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore has been running a competition to find the world’s coolest intern for their mobile banking team. The winner of the competition gets a six month paid internship, some training in social media and a bunch of other perks. Sounds great, right?
Well, the competition is closing tomorrow, and the only Australian to make the final top 10 is Katherine Liew from Adelaide. Not only has she kept a campaign diary of her social media efforts, she has produced YouTube videos, and suggested product improvement ideas. She even writes a fashion blog.
And in case that doesn’t sound like enough, here, in her own words she covers off the other activities she has been undertaking WHILE finishing a law degree:
I’ve also been a part-time marketing freelancer/consultant for most of my uni career, quietly creating content and generating ideas in NFP, media, tech retail and health. I’ve also volunteered a lot of time for causes I believe in, such as being a Communications VP for AIESEC, Project Manager for GAPS Australia and intern for CSR Asia Singapore.
One of the things that I love about my (volunteer) work with Vibewire is coming into contact with inspiring, innovative and entrepreneurial young people. There’s plenty of them out there – and Katherine Liew is a great example.
I have a feeling that if she doesn’t win the world’s coolest intern spot in Singapore that there will be plenty of others willing to take her on.
Best of luck, Katherine!
