With graduation season in full swing, recent grads across the country are sanitizing and censoring their online profiles, removing Tweets and Facebook that might scare off a future employer. Edge Shave Gel is flipping that notion on its head with their biggest digital campaign ever. They’re offering four lucky guys a shot at a life-changing career experience through the Edge Dream Job Contest.
Their ideal candidate isn’t ashamed of what they post online…in fact, it’s what makes them awesome! Edge is literally giving away four Dream Jobs they know guys would love to try, if only they could get a foot in the door. They’re here to give them an edge at their dreams, with these grand prize experiences:
- The SI Swimsuit Photographer: Work behind the scenes role at the Sports Illustrated 2015 Swimsuit Edition photo shoot. (#Work4SI)
- The Thrillist Taste Tester: Get paid to eat and drink as a Thrillist guest taste tester, and host a tasting party in your honor in New York City. (#Work4Thrillist)
- “The Awesomes” Funnyman: Learn the ins and outs of producing Seth Meyer’s animated comedy series on Hulu with a mentorship in Hollywood. (#Work4Awesomes)
- IGN Community Correspondent: Attend Pax Prime, one of gaming’s biggest show, live from Seattle as a correspondent for IGN and Edge. (#Work4IGN)
Prospective candidates can strengthen their resumes and gain points by registering on EdgeDreamJob.com, syncing their social networks, posting content and completing challenges. These challenges will ask guys to respond to prompts on social media focused on the requirements of each job, such as writing bite-sized food and drink reviews for Thrillist on Facebook, or using Instagram to share a picture of your at-home gaming set-up for IGN. Candidates will use specific hashtags for each dream job experience (#Work4SI, #Work4Thrillist, #Work4Awesomes, or #Workf4IGN), linking their content and gaining points to add to their resume.
For men who don’t make it to the top of the resume stack, there are still plenty of ways to win. Each piece of content candidates share using a Dream Job hashtag is an entry to win a daily prize pack featuring a laptop case and a year’s supply of Edge Shave Gel, or a weekly prize inspired by each job including a Ubisoft Watchdogs Next-Gen Gaming Package and a Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital SLR camera with lens.
This contest sounds like a great opportunity for anyone looking to score their dream job. After all guys, work is overrated … unless you win one of these four sweet career opportunities from Edge Shave Gel. Can you rise to the top of the Resume Stack to land the grand prize?
