Why we’re helping students get a ‘foot in the door’ this summer!

Why we’re helping students get a ‘foot in the door’ this summer!

We’ve taken loads of interns over the years. And some of you may be familiar with how Katrina Lees, who is a partner of The Creative Collective, started at the company as an intern back in 2007, later became a contractor, then a franchisee and as of 1 January 2014, a partner! I guess you could say that we’re pretty big fans of interns given our history!

Some of our interns have gone on to become Marketing Managers of big brands. Others to run their own businesses. Others to become staff or contractors for our company. And in the very least we’ve provided them with experience, references and connections which have helped them build their careers, which we feel really good about. Right now we’re even hosting an intern from Germany!

We’re therefore proud to be involved in the Foot in the Door campaign, an initiative created by the Knowledge and Professional Services Industry taskforce for the Sunshine Coast Council which our founder Yvette Adams sits on.

The campaign is aimed at encouraging more businesses on the Sunshine Coast to take on student interns this summer, as well as encouraging students to sign up for potential internships.

The campaign key message, is that if every employer on the Sunshine Coast took just one intern on, what a big difference this could make to our community!

So can you lead the way and take an intern over this summer? Can you encourage other employers to do so?

Can you connect young people in your networks to this opportunity?

We hope so!

Please find below and attached a swag of marketing collateral ready for you to push this out to your networks on social media, email, or just by mentioning it where relevant as you travel in business circles.

Have a watch of the campaign video below, there’s both a short version (1:39) and a long version (6 minutes) depending on how long you’ve got.

Thanks for your support, and please use the #footinthedoor hashtag if you’re sharing it out on social. The campaign’s website is www.footinthedoor.co. The campaign runs until end January 2016.
