Back to School, Back to Work Contest


Back to School Back to Work

If you’ve been with us since last December, then you’ll probably remember our participation in the HP Magic Giveaway. It was a huge success not only because we got to give away some awesome prizes, but also because hundreds of you paid it forward by helping friends and family with the job search. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that HP, Microsoft, and Timbuk2 have invited us to participate in the Back to school: Better Together promotion.

The details on our specific contest haven’t been hammered out yet, but we’re calling the One Day, One Job version Back to School, Back to Work. Whether you’re returning from an internship and heading back to school or you’ve graduated and just want to get back to work (or to work if you’ve never had a job before), we want to help you use technology to make that happen. That’s why we’re giving away some awesome prizes in this contest sponsored by HP, Microsoft, and Timbuk2.

  1. I can’t wait to hear about the contest. I have been needing a laptop for while now and an entry level job. So this could be the best of both worlds.
