This blog post will be Part 3 of a series of 4 posts related to KPMG’s competition on “What Makes a Top Employer“.
On September 20th, I blogged about the competition, how to register and vote, and why I wanted to share my voice. I encouraged you to watch my video (and the others) and decide if I was worthy of your vote. On September 28th, I blogged because I had hit a milestone, 1000 views!! I had been asked how I would continue to engage the voters, as 30 days is a heck of a long time to vote daily. A few days later, I uploaded this video to YouTube:
The video continues to align with my Top Employer vision, but won’t count towards official votes on KPMG’s contest website. As you can tell, I did the ABC’s of “What Makes a Top Employer” [it's ok to start laughing now...], I knew creativity and humor would be critical for engagement.
We are now 8 days away from the end of the competition. I am currently in 3rd place, with 431 votes and 1631 views. The young woman in 1st place has a 30-day video upload advantage on me; as a result, I’ve decided my goal is to get to 2nd place before the contest ends on October 18th, 2010 at 11:59PM EST.
If you have yet to engage in this competition, I will plead with you to do so. At the end of the day, this has nothing to do with votes or who is the “winner.” As I’ve said, I believe this competition is about impact. The impact that we, as young people, can have on future leaders and potential employers.
If you would like to vote, please visit my video contest entry here:
I will update again post-competition with the final tally on votes and views. The judges are expected to make a decision on the winners by November 5th, 2010.
With all my love. ❤
