Sell Your Story competition: Win $750 for telling us about your job or course

We want you to get paid for the work you’ve already done.

We want you to get paid for the work you’ve already done.

That is, the study you’ve competed, the job interviews you’ve attended, the career paths you’ve taken. Write a piece focused on giving tangible, real and insightful content based on your experience.  

Think back to when you were finishing school or university and were looking for guidance – you wanted more than “follow your dreams”, you wanted useful information.

We are looking for the REAL stuff. For example:

  • Step by step advice how to get into your industry
  • A piece that answers a question… eg. “Is a Bachelor of Arts a load of BS?”, “What questions should I expect in an interview with the Big 4?”
  • A piece that explains what it is REALLY like being an actress / event planner / banker / zoologist… etc,
  • Industry misconceptions
  • Day in the life stories 

…the list is endless.

If you’ve had a job, career, course, exam or any other type of experience or revelation that that has made a dent in your journey, for either good or bad, today could be your pay day.

You could win a $750 cash prize for your submission.

Total prize pool: $75o.00 AUD.

Entering is super simple. It does not matter how far you are into your course or career – everyone has a ‘Story to Sell’.

The strongest entry will provide real insight and advice for those to come after you, based on your first hand experience. Simply share with us the insight you wish you would have had before you jumped into an industry. Enter as many times as you want.

Specific guidelines:

Minimum 300 words; Include in the title the course name, relevant industry or topic you are discussing; The more INSIGHTFUL – the more chance you have to win; Increase your chances by entering more than once.
