Pizza Mogul earns real dough

29 June 2015

A QUT Business School student has scored a paid internship in the Domino's Pizza Mogul Marketing team thanks to her superior pizza marketing skills.

The six-week Domino's Pizza Mogul challenge required students to create the best Pizza Mogul profile for a chance to win a two-month internship plus a range of cash prizes and bonuses.

Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and Bachelor of Media and Communications student Nicole Hillyard won the challenge due to her strong sales results, engagement in social media, and exceptional creativity.

She initially decided to take part in the competition to get some real-world experience to include on her resume.

"My Pizza Mogul profile is now a portfolio for me, something I can show to future employers," she said.

Nicole worked closely with the Pizza Mogul mentoring team to create a successful social media campaign and was thrilled to be announced as the winner of the challenge.

"I'm stoked! It's a great opportunity to get some real-world experience, and it's a paid position so it's win-win!

Domino's Pizza Mogul Marketing Manager Carly O'Connor said the competition had been an amazing partnership between all parties.

"It's been a real benefit for the students, for QUT, and for Domino's," she said.

Carly said the competition had been a huge success and Domino's would continue to offer opportunities for QUT students to unlock their marketing potential.

"Our partnership with QUT will definitely continue in the future with more exciting rewards to come," she said.

Nicole is looking forward to starting her internship at Domino's in a few weeks and said the challenge had been a really rewarding experience.

"It's been super fun, plus you get to eat a lot of pizza!"
