Career Development & Internships is holding an Internship Photo Contest! This contest is open to all students who have participated or are currently participating in internships, practicums, field experiences, research and any other meaningful experiential learning opportunities from fall 2016 to present. Join the fun! Submit a photo and answer brief survey questions about your internship online. A $100 Macy’s gift card to go towards a professional wardrobe will be awarded to the top winner. Other prizes will also be available to runner ups and those who fill out the quick internship survey but may not have a photo to submit.

The contest will close on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, at 5 p.m.

Submission Requirements:

  • You must be currently enrolled as a William Jewell student when submitting an entry.
  • To submit an entry, you must follow 2 steps:
  1. Answer this quick survey about your internship, here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/WJCContest. You should answer each question briefly and use your best writing skills. Survey responses are part of the entry and will be judged.
  2. Submit 1 photo (the photo should include you as the intern) by uploading it to the bottom of the survey or emailing the image to careerdevelopment@william.jewell.edu.  If you do not have a photo, but still fill out the survey, you are eligible for the smaller prizes available.
  • Submissions become the property of Jewell’s Career Development & Internships Office and may be shared for promotional/marketing purposes beyond the contest. Jewell retains the right to edit entries for proper grammar and spelling. Student and employer names may be published on our website along with the photo and survey responses you submit.

 

Contest Judging:
Judges will be appointed by Career Development & Internships

Tips:
Be cognizant of the specific policies and privacy laws of your workplace and industry. Our expectation is that Jewell students abide by all worksite rules for professional conduct in their respective industries/careers. If you have questions about confidentiality matters, please check with your employer supervisor before uploading a photo to the contest. Thank you.

Get creative. Take a picture of yourself with the company’s product or in front of the company or school district’s sign. A picture of you with new work friends, teaching/presenting or preparing for an event can tell your story. The photo is meant to be representative of something you have done or are doing so have fun with it.

On your survey responses, explain in your best writing style why your experience is awesome.
