Nuffnang and Standard Chartered are partnering to bring you the coolest news ever. Like EVER.

If the word ‘internship’ conjures images of poring over newspaper cuttings, making coffee for grumpy cubicle slaves, or blankly feeding documents to the paper shredder you named Bob… STOP! Internships are so much more than that, and it doesn’t any better than this opportunity to be the World’s Coolest Intern with Standard Chartered Bank!

Standard Chartered Bank is on the lookout for the ‘World’s Coolest Intern’ to join the Breeze mobile banking team in Singapore. If Tweetdeck and Facebook are the first things to greet you in the morning and the last things you say good night to, you’re exactly the type of person they’re looking for!

Curious to know what’s in store? It’s nothing short of impressive:

– A 6-month internship programme with total remuneration of SGD30,000

– Perks includes training on social media and online engagement from Standard Chartered’s esteemed partners

It doesn’t matter if you’re 19, 29 or 39 – all you need is passion, a thirst for learning, and really fast thumbs to keep up with all the Tweeting and Facebooking.

Come to think of it, the description we just wrote sounds exactly like how we’d describe Nuffnangers – a lively, passionate bunch always ready to learn. We think a Nuffnanger would be a PERFECT fit for the position so yes, we’re challenging all of you to vie for the position of World’s Coolest Intern! Who’s up for the challenge?! *trumpets blare*

    Hey guys!

    I want to become the World’s Coolest Intern with StanChartBreeze. Please help me!

    I believe I have the experience and skills to be Cool! I’ve dabbled in creating websites and the like since 15, and have chalked up more than a year’s experience in marketing (including directing marketing for a boutique film festival) though I’m fresh out of school!

    Most importantly, I have true commitment and passionate about this position – check out my dedicated website chronicling my steps and obstacles to becoming the World’s Coolest Intern!
