STA World Travel Internship

STA TRAVEL WORLD TRAVELERS INTERNSHIPSTA Travel Australia, I have always been a loyal customer to you; never have I ventured off to Student Flights or Flight Center when in need of airfares, accommodation or travel advice. You see, I only have eyes for one travel agent, STA Travel, and that, my friend, is you! Just recently though, my love for you was tainted upon finding out that STA Travel USA has beaten you to the podium in all things cool. STA Travel Australia, I suggest you listen up and take a page out of STA Travel USA’s book. Apparently it is what all the cool kids are doing.

STA Travel is the largest student travel organization in the world. They recognize the personal growth and unique perspective that young people gain from global experiences; they believe travel changes people’s lives for the better. On the contrary, STA also recognizes the reason that most young people do not travel are finance-related issues. In order to solve this dilemma, STA Travel USA is searching for TWO World Travel Interns to traverse the globe experiencing a number of travel adventures and showcasing their experiences daily via a journal/blog, video and podcasts.

You are in with a good chance if you are able to:

– capture some incredible video footage and shoot some awesome snaps
– not embarrassed to freely interview fellow travelers and locals
– share your travel experiences to other fellow travelers through video, travel blogs and podcasts
– have the best time of your life

Unlike previous years, this time around you don’t even have to be an undergraduate student to take part; you just have to be aged 18 to 26 and hold a US passport. This is a once in a life time opportunity that will see you travel from the tropical waters of Fiji, to the red rock outback of Australia, India, Eastern Africa, Berlin, Scandinavia/Russia, Scotland and to the luscious greenery of Ireland. This is something you should not even have to think twice about.

To be in with a chance to intern for STA Travel, simply create a two to three minute video explaining why you would be the perfect World Travel Intern for 2009. To read more about this amazing prospect, you can visit the STA Travel World Intern site or visit the STA Travel site directly.

This really is a once in a life time opportunity that is too good to miss. I would eat my own sock to be able to enter into something like this! STA Travel Australia, I hope you are listening… err, reading. Learn from your overseas brother!

Applications cease on March 8, 2009 so get a-working on your video entries. What are you waiting for?

    I imagine it would be quite annoying is this internship was not offered in your country however america is not the only country that offers the opportunity as the UK does as well.

    I hope they introduce it to Australia sometime soon!
