Affect PR in NYC Looking for Its Next Employee!

Affect, a PR and social media agency in New York City, is running to find their next employee called The New York Job Project.

You may have heard of The New York Intern Project that Affect has run in years past, but this year, they are upping the stakes and giving participants the chance to compete for a full-time position. One lucky winner will receive a salaried full-time position and a $1,500 moving stipend to kick off a new career in NYC!

Here’s how it works:

  • Recent graduates dreaming of a career in public relations and social media will submit a creative video or photo entry to the contest web site on why they would make the ideal employee. To see sample videos from last year’s contest, visit
  • Entrants need to get their network to vote! The top six semi-finalists will be selected via public voting on the contest website and will be interviewed via Skype for a spot in the finals
  • The top three finalists from the Skype interview round will be flown to New York (with all expenses paid!) to meet the Affect team and have an in-person interview with our celebrity judges
  • After the finalists wow the judges, the lucky winner of the New York Job Project will be announced in the beginning of May

The site is live and all entries must be submitted at by APRIL 12, 2013.  Bentley seniors interested in careers in communications are encouraged to enter!
