There is a special job for eight people who love riding motorbikes, hot summers, and feeling the wind in their hair. The job is a summer internship for the motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson. It wants people to learn to ride its bikes and then ride them across the USA. The job offer is to celebrate the 115th anniversary of the founding of the company. The successful people will get training to ride a Harley and must then share their experiences of riding around the USA on social media. They must also attend different events, including anniversary celebrations.

Harley-Davidson's CEO explained why his company wants eight interns to ride bikes. He said: "We're continuously working to grow the sport of motorcycling. What better way to engage future riders than to have a whole team of newly-trained enthusiasts share personal stories...[of] motorcycle culture and community....I'm looking forward to following their journeys [and] learning about their experiences." To qualify, candidates must show they are good storytellers, can use social media well, and can describe what freedom means in an essay, video or through photos.
