Fresh & Easy uses social media to recruit interns

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Tesco's U.S. subsidiary is looking for interns.

Fresh & Easy said it is hoping to fill 30 paid positions within such company departments as human resources, supply chain, commercial, marketing, information technology and engineering. The company said it is hoping to find interns to fill the positions by posting the openings on Fresh & Easy's new careers Twitter account, along with the Fresh & Easy's careers website.

To be eligible for the program, applicants must be a current student enrolled in their senior year or a recent graduate from a 4-year accredited university and must commit to full-time work.

“The Fresh & Easy internship program is a great opportunity for students and recent grads to gain once-in-a-lifetime experience with a fast-growing company,” Fresh & Easy recruitment director Emma Weare said. “Last year, more than half our interns found full-time opportunities within Fresh & Easy.”
