WASHINGTON, May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Public invited to submit job videos for chance to win $1,000 The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the kickoff of the first phase of the Career Videos for America's Job Seekers Challenge, which invites members of the public to produce and submit one to three minute videos focusing on the daily activities of one of 15 high-wage and in-demand occupations. The video challenge is intended to result in greater visibility for selected occupations and increased numbers of workers seeking training and placement in these areas.
The creators of the top video in each category will win a $1,000 cash prize.
"People need to know what a job looks like and what the work entails before they make the decision to switch careers or enter training that leads to a good job in a new occupation," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "We want to see what you, America's workers, are doing day in and day out. Your videos will help others who are seeking to enter the workforce or make mid-career changes." The competition will occur in four phases. During Phase One (May 10 to June 18), members of the public, employer associations, businesses and labor organizations can submit their occupational videos for one of the 15 selected occupations.
