Share your Success Stories & win!

Having looked for a job for over a year before I started the position I am currently in, I am no stranger to Monster.com. From the daily emails to the great searching abilities, this site is definitely one of the best for job searches.  Recently, Monster.com let me know about a fun giveaway opportunity for my blog!


Monster.com invites you to take a look at the new Monster Success Stories community, which encourages hope and optimism through the sharing of successful job-search stories and tips. The Success Stories program encourages participants to submit job success stories or career tips via videos, photos, and text on the "Success Stories" tab of the Monster.com Facebook page.  Submissions will be showcased on the tab to inspire people to make their dream jobs a reality.

Monthly winners will be randomly chosen for both success story submissions and career tip submissions. Prizing for winning success stories includes a $5,000 prepaid gift card towards a new professional wardrobe. Gift cards and career development packages will be given to winning career tips. 


Sounds great, right?  What's even better is by entering and tagging your entry with La vie J'aime, you will be entered to win $150 in gift cards each to Nordstrom and Jonathan Adler.  That way you can outfit both yourself and your office to be your most successful yet!  Some items that you may want to consider if you win...






Here's how to enter and win:
--Visit Monster.com and submit a photo or video tip/success story in one of the following categories:
1. Success Stories: I Found My Job
2. Tips: Resumes
3. Tips: Interviews
4.Tips: Dress to Impresss
Be sure to Include La Vie Jaime as a tag, so we can count it as an entry.
--Come back here and comment that you submitted (if you'd like to copy and paste what you submit and put in the comment, that's great!).

That's all!  Good luck and cannot wait to see your success stories!

Contest ends September 30th. Winner announced via Random.org on October 1.
