2010 College Grads: Win Cash in Our Video Contest!

Graduation 2010 Video ContestAre you a new college or university grad facing the daunting reality of your first big job search? We've got just the thing to lift your spirits! It's the Graduation 2010: Now What? video contest, and we're giving away hundreds of dollars in prize money.

Create a short video that answers one of three job search-related questions, upload it to our YouTube page before June 30, 2010, and you'll be entered to win!

First place wins $500, along with a matching donation to the career services center at the winner's alma mater. Second place gets $250, and third place walks away with $100.

The contest begins May 3, 2010, and ends June 30, 2010.

 

How to Enter

  1. Create an artistic, 1-2 minute video that answers at least one of these questions:
    • If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
    • How do you prepare for an interview?
    • What's the scariest part of life after college?
  2. We're looking for poems, dances, songs, paintings, skits, or whatever else you can come up with.
  3. Upload the video to YouTube as a "Viewer's Response" to Pongo Resume's contest video.

Judging Criteria

  • Pongo's judges will grade all video entries on creativity, originality, quality, and thumbs up/thumbs down comments on YouTube.
  • Keep it clean. Sorry, but we'll have to disqualify you if there's any vulgarity or nudity.

Winners will be announced on July 9, 2010 on The Pongo Blog!

If you have any questions, email us at graduation2010@pongoresume.com.

Meanwhile, check The Pongo Blog each Monday and Wednesday in May and June for posts that offer timely advice on preparing resumes, succeeding in job interviews, and other issues you'll face as you transition from the classroom to the workplace.
