Under Armour is building upon the success of the 2011 "Ultimate Intern" search and expanding the program to offer five college student candidates an opportunity to join the brand this summer as part of the "Ultimate Intern Team."
Students can apply through the Under Armour Facebook page by submitting a 140-character cover letter today now through February 27. Additionally, applicants will be challenged with creating their own Tumblr page to prove that they have what it takes to be part of the Under Armour brand. Five interns will be selected to work in positions such as copywriting, filmmaking, graphic design, social media, and marketing, all with an emphasis on digital engagement. Students will learn first-hand how Under Armour continues to be a leader in performance innovation, working with the brand's elite athletes and going behind-the-scenes at events and commercial shoots.
The "Ultimate Intern Team" will also be tasked with strategizing, writing, capturing, and editing content to distribute through Under Armour's social media channels, highlighting the Under Armour culture and activating around everything from product releases to athlete initiatives. The internship is open to current students who will be returning to school following the summer. Selected interns will each receive a $5,000 scholarship paid directly to his or her school. Also of note, UA will provide airfare/travel and housing for the interns.
