As the class of 2014 says their tearful goodbyes to families and friends, they welcome the real world of adulthood. You know, that moment where you go from being the one with the most Facebook friends and twitter followers in your frat, to untagging yourself from all the photos of you passed out on a car hood with granny panties on your head. It’s that moment where you realized not every photo of you doing crude, then funny, acts should have been posted. Especially when the marketplace you worked many years to someday join, may look down upon your documented boyish ways.
Well for four lucky men out there, Edge Shave Gel is offering you the chance to take those memories and turn them into possible once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Like assisting on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photoshoot. Yeah… the one with all the bikini clad models. Or join former Weekend Update anchor, Seth Meyers, for a mentorship and behind-the-scene look at Hulu’s Original Series “The Awesomes”. One of these could be yours through the #DreamJob social media contest.
The Edge team aren’t afraid to share their aspirations and dreams, and believe their users shouldn’t be either. From now until June 30, 2014, contestants can create an online “resume” on Facebook and complete a series of challenges to score points, impress the judges and launch themselves to the top of the resume stack, for the shot at a Dream Job (Dream Job descriptions pasted below).
Dream Job candidates have six weeks to use social media to post content and complete challenges in order to land an interview for the job of their choice. The winning applicant for each Dream Job experience will be chosen based on his resume strength and qualifications for the role by a panel of judges, including representatives from the brand, Sports Illustrated, IGN, Thrillist and Broadway Video, a producer of ‘The Awesomes.’
“Edge Shave Gel does more than give guys an advantage in front of the mirror. We’re dedicated to providing a leg up in all aspects of their lives,” said Matt Rader, Group Marketing Director at Energizer Personal Care.
