Want to share your career journey or aspirations on our growing YouTube channel and be in with the chance of winning £300?
After the success of our Student Guest Blog Programme, we're excited to announce the launch of our Graduate YouTube Programme!
We're inviting you to take part in our new YouTube Graduate Takeover series and create a video sharing either your graduate career path or your student career aspirations.
1. Fill in the sign-up form at the bottom of this blog with a few of your details.
2. Subscribe to our YouTube channel.
3. Read through our prompt questions and filming guidelines. Feel free to send us a test video to check if your video meets our requirements.
4. We'll be in touch with the next steps!
Whether you're a graduate currently on your career journey, or a student making your career plans, we want to hear from you.
Anyone can enter - graduates and students!
If you are a graduate, it doesn't matter whether you've only recently started your first job, or if you've been in your role for some time now. We want your insights.
If you are a student, it doesn't matter whether you have secured a graduate job before your graduation, or if you're planning out your next career moves. Your advice is still valuable!
Entering the workplace can be tough. Your video could prove to be a helpful resource for struggling graduates and students.
With so many graduates and students unsure on what career to pursue, your insights will be an invaluble resource and help give others more of an idea as to the career path that they'd like to follow.
Your video will be published on our YouTube channel (with some of our popular uploads having as many as 50K views) and across our social channels, reaching our network of 55k + connections! This is a fantastic opportunity for thousands to learn from your tips, and with your video including a link to your LinkedIn profile, there's the potential for excellent networking opportunities.
Once your video has been published on our channel, you'll recieve a digital certificate and a LinkedIn badge to add to your profile, stating that you've taken part in our programme!
You'll receive a breakdown of how your video performed and its YouTube analytics rankings - giving you an insight into how YouTube metrics work.
We'll also share with you our top tips for producing engaging YouTube videos and how we promote our videos, giving you helpful marketing knowledge to use in your career and tips if you're looking to start your own YouTube channel!
The winner of our £300 prize is the individual who gets the most views on their video!
When your video is published, we'll share your video across our socials channels, but to gain more traction, we encourage all entries to share their video with friends, family and wider network to further increase views and chances of winning!
We run 2 competitions throughout the year:
1. The first competition runs from January through to May (winner announced in June)
2. The second competition of the year will be from July to November (with winner announced in December).
The sooner we feature your video, the sooner you can start racking up views!
We'd love you to talk about your graduate career journey, from what you studied at University, anything that helped you land your new role and what a 'day in your life' looks like in your job.
We've put together a list of prompt questions to help structure your video - you don't have to answer all the questions, and feel free to come up with your own additional questions!
If you are a student/graduate who is currently career planning:
If you are a student who has a job lined up post-graduation:
If you are a working graduate:
