Anyone want to Be Gretchen Bleiler and Anastasia Ashley’s Intern Trainee?

The search is on to hire two candidates to participate in the Old Spice Fresh Adventure Internship to celebrate the brand’s first line of destination-based anti-perspirant/deodorant. The Fresh Collection gives guys the chance to smell like some of the freshest places on earth: Fiji, Matterhorn, Cyprus and Denali. As part of their job requirement, the interns will be reporting on their scent-inspired adventures in Matterhorn and Fiji, via social media channels. Each intern will also be outfitted with $5,000 and an itinerary of “jobs” to complete and document while on location.

To help better prepare the interns for their adventure, Old Spice is teaming up with two world-class athletes: professional snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler and professional surfer Anastasia Ashley, who are coming on-board as internship mentors. For more information, visit www.oldspiceadventure.com.

“I am excited to be working with Old Spice on the Fresh Collection Internship Search,” said Gretchen Bleiler, professional snowboarder. “It’s not often that someone gets a chance to go to Matterhorn or Fiji as part of an internship, let alone get paid to snowboard all day and rock some lederhosen!”
