Score an internship with La Liga in Singapore and they'll give you 2 match tickets to Spain too
Internship goals have taken on a whole new meaning with this job opening at one of the world's top football leagues.
La Liga Asia Pacific is searching for its first intern in the region to be based at the Singapore regional office.
During the six-month stint there, the intern will be introduced to the world of football and also embark on key projects, which include aiding the organisation of public viewings of El Clasico - which is the name given to any football match between rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona - in the region. He or she will also play a key role in school initiatives.
And it's not all work and no play. La Liga Asia Pacific said it will be giving away two match tickets to the lucky intern to experience a match firsthand in Spain.
We can almost hear you football fans roaring in delight. But scoring an internship there may require more skill than achieving a hat-trick.
There will be a two-stage selection process, where La Liga will sieve through resumes and CVs between Oct 9 to 20.
Eleven candidates will be shortlisted to move on to the second stage from Oct 23 to 30, where they will have a chance to share their creative ideas on increasing the brand exposure of La Liga in the region.
Other tasks include to kickstart a key initiative to work with schools, and embark on a FIFA 18 gaming tournament among other candidates to assess attitudes towards winning or losing a game, and how candidates interact with one another.
After a week's evaluation, the chosen intern will be announced on Nov 13. The internship is a full-time position for six months, but can be customised to fit the individual's needs. Internship will start in Dec till May 2018.
La Liga Asia Pacific said the internship experience will "provide the intern with an invaluable career experience, and provide him/her with a foothold in the sports industry."
Ivan Codina, managing director at La Liga for Southeast Asia, Australia, Japan and S Korea, said: "The search for our very first intern in Asia is indicative of our growing efforts here, and allows us to connect with our audiences in many different ways.
"With the help of the intern, we will be able to better engage with millennials and youths, and aid in the development of football in schools, as part of our focus on the grassroots."
La Liga first announced in March that they will be setting up their regional headquarters in Singapore, focusing on markets in Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea and Australia. According to a spokesperson, operations started in Singapore two months ago.
So if you're a football fan looking for an internship and ready for kick-off, send your resume and CV to email@example.com by Oct 20, 2017.
