At MasterCard, our vision is to continuously promote the benefits and value of a World Beyond Cash. Our CEO, Ajay Banga, understands millennials will help us foresee and develop products and solutions to bring us closer to that vision of a cashless society.
To deepen our relationship with Millennials, we are taking #internswanted global. The program launched in Canada in 2011 and uses social media to engage this generation in all things cashless. This year, Millennials from Canada, U.S., China, Singapore, Italy and Turkey will all have the chance to submit their cashless ideas to land a dedicated number of coveted MasterCard internships designed for this special program. With internships available in key company departments such as emerging payments, technology, marketing, communications, product and issuer management, college students from around the globe will have a chance to make their mark at MasterCard as the Cashless Generation.
To get those cashless juices flowing, we’re launching a series of webisodes demonstrating the issues a cash-based world will face in the future.
We are also producing a special blog series, Millennials at MasterCard, where you’ll hear from current Gen Y-employees about MasterCard and what it’s like to work here.
With full program details available on Facebook in Canada and on our website in the U.S., we invite you to spread the news about our 2013 #internswanted campaign. Tell that millennial you know it isn’t too late to apply for a position by submitting their cover letter and resume, along with a creative submission around a world beyond cash, for their chance to land an internship with us. The search in Canada and the U.S. is already underway, with the other countries following suit in the coming months.
