This Summer, Trump and Burnett Scour the Nation in Search of New Recruits

by SnowflakeGirl – Do you have what it takes to be the next APPRENTICE? Or better yet, the next Omarosa? If you think you’ve got the stuff to kick butt in the boardroom, then you might be just the person Donald (The Hairpiece) Trump and Mark (Mega Producer/Master of the Broadcasting Universe) Burnett are looking for, and now is your chance to prove it.

Throughout June and July, the creators of NBC’s hit reality business show will embark upon a 17-City nationwide tour in order to cast the fifth season of APPRENTICE, slated for broadcast in 2006. The casting tour has already begun this weekend in Los Angeles, and will stop at Trump Tower on July 8 (where Trump himself will field applicants), before continuing with casting directors in 15 other cities throughout the month of July. The tour will include new stops in places such as Anchorage, Baltimore, Charlotte, Des Moines and Pittsburgh.

"If you've ever wanted to compete on 'The Apprentice', this is your opportunity," said executive producer, Donald Trump, "I'd like to encourage all age groups to apply including veteran business men and women along with hungry young entrepreneurs."

Casting directors will be looking for applicants who are "able to take risks, bounce back after failing, succeed in a cutthroat environment, go against the tide, remain focused, think creatively and be a leader." If this sounds like you, go to to fill out the application form. Candidates can submit their applications online, or bring their completed application to the Open Call Interviews (see below for the list of cities and dates).
