Video: Interns-For-A-Day Wow Us At Fast Horse

November 17, 2010

Five aspiring professionals shook things up at the Fast Horse World Headquarters during the past two weeks, visiting our shop for paid one-day internships. They earned their stints through the Fast Horse Experience Intern-For-A-Day program.

In the video below, you’ll see we started with the standard get-to-know-you office tours. After that, we put our interns to work on a collaborative project, asking them to come up with a marketing campaign for a fictional product launch. It was a tight schedule: We made them present their pitches at the end of the day to the assembled Fast Horse crew — a tough crowd for sure!

These bright young marketers did a great job. They hit the road to record consumer habits, shot a figure skating video, staged a tongue-in-cheek infomercial, interviewed University of Minnesota students, brainstormed with the Fast Horse crew and more.

See for yourself:

It was a fun, valuable experience for us and we certainly hope it was for our interns, too. If you missed the posts that these talented interns-for-a-day submitted to be selected for the program, here are their guest Idea Peepshow posts:

This was not a one-time thing. The program lasts for a year and we’ll be looking for the next group in early 2011, so if you’re interested in applying, please do stay tuned for announcements on Facebook.
