Need a Little Magic for Your Job Search?


HP Magic Giveaway

It’s only been a week and a half since One Day, One Job started it’s second year, and we’re already on to our second major announcement. Last week we announced that we’ve begun working on a job search training course, and today we’re announcing that we’ve been selected to take part in The HP Magic Giveaway! We’ve done giveaways before (a Wii and an iPod Touch), but this is on a whole new level. We think that technology is essential to a smart job search, but we know that you’re probably still using that computer that you got before your Freshman year of college. We want to help you make an upgrade, and HP has enabled us to make that happen for one of you.

HP has teamed up with 50 blogs and given each of them an amazing package to give away over the coming weeks. The package includes:


  • HP TouchSmart IQ816 PC
  • HP HDX 18 series Premium Notebook PC
  • HP MediaSmart Connect
  • HP Pavilion dv4 series Entertainment Notebook PC (with Windows Live)
  • HP Mini 1000 (with XP)


  • HP Photosmart C6380 Wireless AIO (printer)
  • HP 564 Photo Value Pak


  • Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate/Home Premium or Microsoft Windows XP pre-installed on all units (Mini 1000 runs XP)
  • Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition 2007 (Student-Teacher Edition) – 1 DVD with 3 licenses
  • Microsoft Windows Live
  • Corel VideoStudio X2


  • Kung Fu Panda (2 widescreen DVDs; 1 widescreen Blu-ray disc)

The total value of the package is more than $6,000 US, and HP will even pay the taxes for the US based winners. It’s exactly what you need to get your job search (and holiday season) started off right. We can’t tell you the details of our contest just yet (you can be sure that we’ll keep it relevant to job search), but you can find out more by visiting HP’s official page for the giveaway.

In the meantime, check out the 49 other blogs that are also participating in the giveaway (yes, there are 50 of these packages up for grabs).

We’ll have more news for you soon!

    Three critical components in the HP Magic giveaway I believe sends a clear answer about starting a small business. I am a photography and graphics design enthusiast, I could see my self taking advantage of the innovative TouchSmart with its enormous/gorgeous screen for editing photos in Adobe Photoshop and vector illustrations in Adobe Illustrator and doing prints on the HP AIO Printer. I am also a heavy user of AutoDesk AutoCAD 2009, I often print drafts and render into 3D, the power of that system would definitely help with that.
    Its quite overwhelming when you think about what HP, Microsoft and so many sites are giving away. HP has exemplified something here, the gift of giving, so why not do the same? If I were to win all this hardware, I definitely could not keep it all. My brother would absolutely love an upgrade from his XP machine to the HP HDX 18 and my other brother would be excited about the HP Mini 1000. Why I would love to win this contest is specifically for the HP Touch Smart and media smart. The all in one printer and laptop I most likely would give away as a Christmas gift to a lucky member at the up coming Church harvest. A lot of folks are in rough economic times (world-wide)right now, giving somebody a laptop might not necessarily make ones life completely better, but its a nice gesture that will make their holidays a very special and memorable one in addition to starting off the New Year with a bang. This collection of devices is screaming, show the good in you, so why not make the ‘smart’ choice of sharing the magic too. Thanks!

    Hi, well…currently im attending nursing school and have made many friends who are with me in the program. Many of them single women struggling without a job (thanks to the economy) to support their kids and better themselves. My classmates and myself do a lot of volunteer work like toys for tots, supporting our troops, and many many more to prepare ourselves for what we are about to see in the future. Our program is very intense and requires computer work, which many of my classmates do not have a computer. There are many raffles in the school that helps the students out throughout the course, and i have been the winner of 2, but i chose to give my prizes to someone who needs it the more than I (my classmates)! I would love to win this contest to help many people, like kids in foster care who do not have access to computers and of course my fellow future nurses and their families during the holidays by rewarding their hard work and dedication with a brand new HP COMPUTER!!!!! So PLEASE HELP ME Share the MAGIC with your future Nurses who are working sooo hard to help others and save lives in the future! Thanks!!!!!!!
