To find our next Account Coordinator, today Affect announced the launch of The New York Job Project, a contest where one entrant will win a full-time dream job working at Affect. Building on the success of the annual New York Intern Project, in which contestants competed for a paid summer internship, Affect initiated the job contest to encourage talented, aspiring PR and social media professionals to jump-start their careers.
Powered by Strutta, an interactive promotions company offering an intuitive contest builder, interested candidates can submit a compelling video or photo entry to the NYJP website by April 12, 2013, describing why they should be Affect’s newest hire.
Candidate entries are then posted to the site, where fans can vote for their favorite. The voting will remain open for six weeks, during which Affect encourages candidates to share their entries via social media to solicit as many votes as possible.
By sharing their entry with their networks, the top six entries with the most votes will move forward to next round interviews. Six semi-finalists will be determined by number of votes from the public and the top three finalists will be chosen by a panel of esteemed judges. This year’s judges include Tiffany Guarnaccia, senior director of communications at Huffington Post Media Group, Mark Ragan, CEO and publisher of PRDaily.com and Ragan.com and Lea-Ann Germinder, president of PRSA-NY, as well as Affect executives Sandra Fathi and Katie Creaser.
The winner of the contest will receive a full-time, salaried position as an Account Coordinator at Affect. As an Account Coordinator, the winner will have the opportunity to contribute as a core team member on client accounts, support media relations and work on social media programs and become a fully integrated member of the team.
The winner will be announced the week of April 29, 2013.
We look forward to seeing your entries! Good luck!
