Hey, I Just Met You; And This Is Crazy; But Here’s My Number; So Hire Me, Maybe

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 12.00.43 PMIf you want an internship that involves making coffee, and then making some more coffee, this internship’s not for you.

That’s the message from this music video called Hire Me, Maybe, whose chorus will be stuck in your head longer than you want it to. It was made by interns at the eyewear designer-distributor ClearVision; I thought I’d pass it along since quite a few ERE readers ask about interesting careers-related videos (Julia Gometz, formerly with JetBlue, pointed this one out to me today).

ClearVision looks for interns who, among other qualities (interpersonal skills, leadership, communication skills — you know the drill) have a GPA of 3.3 of above. Interns participate in workshops like one on “the Science of Shopping” and another on left- vs. right-brain thinking. They also do community service work, such as at a camp called Kehilla, for kids with social/emotional/learning challenges.

The song was inspired by Carly Rae Jepsen’s. It’s about three minutes long, below.
