Not to be outdone by fellow Mpls shop Campbell Mithun and its Twitter-based take on intern-wrangling, Olson has unveiled a plan of its own to bring on “Creative O-terns” by way of mobile device. The catch here is you can only use your phone to apply (no calls, though) and your ultimate payoff is a $12/hr gig. Ch-ching? Here are your directions verbatim:
“-Make something cool, meaty, beautiful using only a phone.
-Post it online somewhere we can see it (YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, etc.).
-Email the web link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Submit your resume and cover letter to www.oco.com/careers.
-Apply by April 15, 2011.”
Unfortunately, an embed of the video explaining Olson’s effort isn’t readily available, but you can view it here.
Update: Ask and ye shall receive. Video embed above.
