(WXYZ) - Attention college students and recent grads! A new digital search is on for a social media savvy youngster with a knack for finances.
The Michigan First Credit Union is trying to retain young talent in the state by holding an internet based search for their next Young and Free Spokester. It's a full-time paid position with a one year term.
As Spokester you will attend events, post daily blog entries and weekly video blog entries.
To apply, the credit union is asking applicants to create a short video explaining why they'd be a great Spokester. You also have to write a blog post on an entertaining financial-specific topic.
Current Spokester Austin Chapman says his spokester term was an amazing networking opportunity that allowed him to build up his portfolio. He is returning to Lawrence Tech University to finish up his degree.
"It's been great for me..it has allowed me ot put my own creative brand and stamp on my work. From here on out, I've got multiple opportunities," said Chapman.
You have to be 18-25 to apply, and you have to be able to work full-time and live in Wayne, Oakland or Macomb County throughout your Spokester term.
This is the third year Michigan First Credit Union is holding a Spokester search. Their first Spokester now works as a social media specialist for the credit union.
April 15 is the deadline to apply. Candidates will then be voted on by the public followed by a top ten group interview session.
