More than 50,000 Victorian year 12 students received their VCE exam results today, and regardless of how well they went, the following internship advertisement may make a few of them reconsider their university preferences.

Volkswagen of America is looking for a part-time marketing intern to work at its Bugatti operations in Herndon, Virginia.

The job is 20 hours a week and includes – among some rather menial, uninspiring tasks – “organisation of transport of customer cars”.

So if getting behind the wheel of a Veyron sounds like a dream come true, this might just be the internship for you.

Before you get too excited, there are a couple of things you should know.

Volkswagen says candidates must be enrolled at a university and have a “general vehicle knowledge”.

The advertisement also says “pre-employment substance abuse testing” will be carried out, which would be quite a stumbling block for a few of the university students we know.

We’d suggest trying to get a transfer to somewhere like Georgetown or American University, as they’re not much more than 30 minutes away from Bugatti’s offices.
