The Edge Internship (CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE)

Be an Edge Intern for 2020!

This opportunity is open to all Year 13 students who are interested in Broadcasting.

The primary objective is for senior school students interested in a future in broadcasting to kick start their career by becoming Edge interns. The Edge are searching for one or two students to represent their school in this internship. They are unpaid and call for a six month commitment (requirements outlined in advance to the students selected). As ‘The Edge Brand Champions’ they will gain valuable ‘industry’ knowledge and experience, all while taking on an ambassadorial role promoting Edge competitions in their school which could be beneficial for the rest of the students.  During the internship they will receive hands on experience planning and executing The Edge Interns promotions, will head out in our Edge Road Runner Jeeps and will voice their own ‘what’s on at our school’ commercials. At the end of the year, they will receive a reference which will be an excellent start to their CV and a possible ‘foot in the door’ should future employment opportunities arise.
