The world coolest intern is a competition organized Standard Chartered Bank. The winner will win
- A 6-months internship programme with total remuneration of SGD30,000
- Perks includes training on social media and online engagement
While most of us thought it will be great to win it, a friend of mine, Sarah or more well known by her username @sarah_chong on twitter took action and participated and made it into the top 10.
Congrats! For those who doesn't know Sarah, let me give you a little intro. Sarah is the co-founder of Penn Olson (the future Mashable of Asia.. ahem) that has more than 100,000 views in a month. 100,000 views in a month comes with a big price! The reason to their success is because @Sarah_chong and @WillisWee (the other co-founder) blogged everyday for 12 months (yikes)
We might think that writing a blog post is easy, but having the idea to write everyday for a year proves the commitment that Sarah has in her to be successful.That the biggest reason why I am writing this blog. Since I don't know the other contestants, I can't really judge them.
Sarah is not only a great writer, she who knows her stuff. She understands social media and understand how to use social networking sites to their potential. Her success is proven at @pennolson and was even featured at @mashable. Most of the things that I want to cover here is already covered in the blog post at standard chartered. So I can't really cover much except that I had the opportunity to work with Sarah before Penn Olson started and I was the lucky one to see how Penn Olson grew.
I am sure that anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will be lucky.
For those reading this, your retweet will mean a lot to Sarah because you'll be playing an important role to helping her win this job. Do help! She'll pay very happy.
