Harley-Davidson Offers Eight Social Media Internships For Summer ’18

It might be time for you to re-enroll in college.

Harley-Davidson will now be offering eight current college students or recent grads the internship opportunity of a lifetime: getting paid to ride motorcycles and document their experiences.

No cubicle will cage these interns: to celebrate the 115th anniversary of the founding of Harley-Davidson, the Motor Company is turning an often-mundane rite of passage, the summer internship, into the experience of a lifetime.

Instead of a key card, eight social media savvy collegians will get the opportunity to learn to ride via Harley-Davidson’s Riding Academy. Upon successful completion, they’ll receive the keys to their very own Harley-Davidson motorcycle with the mission of sharing their experiences, exploring motorcycle culture, and enjoying the freedom of riding all summer long.

Reporting to Harley-Davidson’s marketing and social media team, the interns will take to the road and document their journey throughout summer, including: learning to ride at H-D Riding Academy, attending and covering events and of course, experiencing the freedom of motorcycle riding. Some will even take part in the Motor Company’s 115th Anniversary celebrations in Milwaukee and Prague.

To qualify, candidates must have a taste for adventure and be socially savvy storytellers. Interested candidates must describe what FREEDOM means to them by creating a video, writing an essay, developing a photo collage, or creating whatever piece of content they want to make their application unique and then submitting it to [email protected].

The internship program is open to junior and senior level college students (or equivalent) or recent college graduates across the globe, 18 years old and above, looking to pursue a career in social media, communications, public relations or marketing. In total, eight interns will be selected for the program and applications are due Friday, May 11.
