LOS ANGELES--(Collegiate Presswire - April 10, 2007) - MonsterTRAK today announced the "Ultimate Internship" contest, in which college students can enter to win one-of-five elite summer internship programs with one-of-four top companies. Selected students will build relevant work experience with top employers in order to explore exciting opportunities within the marketing, business, financial services, and sales fields. MonsterTRAK is the student division of Monster®, the leading global online careers property and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNST)

Leading companies offering internships via the contest, include: Environmental Defense; Enterprise Rent-A-Car; Northwestern Mutual Financial Network; and Focus Features, a top independent worldwide movie company whose award-winning films include "Brokeback Mountain," "The Constant Gardener," and "Pride & Prejudice," and sibling company Rogue Pictures, whose hits include "Hot Fuzz" and "Jet Li's Fearless."

"Whether a student aspires to become a Hollywood heavyweight, stop global-warming, or rule the boardroom, there are opportunities out there now to help them develop their future career path," said Julie Goldthwait, vice president and general manager, MonsterTRAK.

The following "Ultimate Internships" are now up for grabs:

-- Movie Marketing Internship - Focus Features is a motion picture production, financing, and worldwide distribution company, committed to bringing moviegoers the most original stories from the world's most innovative filmmakers. The company is looking to fill internship positions in both its New York City and Los Angeles offices. Through working in the marketing department of Focus and/or sibling company Rogue Pictures, the selected interns will learn the process - from conceptualization through execution - of how major motion pictures are positioned and marketed via advertising, public relations, and promotions.

-- Environmental Marketing Internship - Environmental Defense, a leading national nonprofit environmental organization, is seeking a summer intern to help influence environmental policies through communications efforts. The student intern will work directly with experts in science, law, economics, and other environmental professionals to secure broader recognition of the organization's advocacy efforts.

-- Financial Representative Internship - Northwestern Mutual Financial Network is seeking a motivated intern with strong interpersonal skills to assess clients' financial needs and offer investment solutions. The intern will have access to the resources, products, and assistance needed to build a client base.

-- Sales Management Internship - Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the largest rental car company in North America, is offering a paid summer internship - at the U.S. location of the candidate's choice - to learn what it takes to run a successful business while acquiring highly marketable managerial skills and experience. The intern selected will also have an opportunity to fly to the St Louis corporate headquarters for a day with Enterprise executives.

"Work-related experience in a desired field is critical for college students, as 70 percent(a) of employers weigh work experience and personal characteristics more heavily than educational experience when considering entry-level job candidates," added Goldthwait. "Through internship programs, students can not only test-drive a career but also gain skills and useful information for future job interviews."
