, a global leader in multi-channel marketing Platform-as-a-Service solutions, today announced the launch of its exciting Next Star Employee initiative, a paid internship program for high school students which is the only one of its kind in Canada.

The program champions the education and advancement of high school students while also promoting the development of future leaders. Students with a passion for learning have the opportunity to build and strengthen their skills and have their ideas impact a successful real-world company.

"At SimplyCast we are committed to finding and developing new talent," said Saeed El-Darahali, president and CEO of SimplyCast. "There is no experience required, just passion. We have a thriving organization centred right here in Nova Scotia, and we want young people to realize they do not have to move far from home to have successful careers."

SimplyCast is the perfect place for students to expand their knowledge and share their ideas. The company fosters a welcoming environment where asking questions and making mistakes are encouraged. The paid internship takes place over the summer months and gives students the opportunity to interact with professionals working in their area of interest.

"Everyone is here to help new employees learn and have a fun, positive experience," said Isiah Wint-Rose, SimplyCast's Next Star Ambassador. "We value the input of every team member and we want to encourage the talents of the young people who join us."
SimplyCast has created this industry-led initiative in collaboration with Equals6, a social network for students, and Interview Rocket, an online interview site, to collect resumes and submissions. All three companies are committed to contributing to the local economy and developing young talent.
