New selfie contest calls on NC grads at work


The first entry for the NC Grad at Work selfie contest came from @ashpaulz who submitted: Hello from the Boston Pizza Head Office in Mississauga! Ashley here, a NC Public Relations post grad from 2010! I was lucky enough to be hired by the head office soon after graduating from @niagaracollege. I started my career here as a Corporate Trainer travelling all over the country teaching new staff, managers and franchisees all about BP. Today I am the Manager of Leadership and Development and spend my days creating training resources for every Boston Pizza in the country. Videos, print materials, online learning resources, my team does it all to make sure that no matter where our Guests visit a BP they receive the most amazing service and amazing food! #ncexperience #myncstory

Niagara College’s Marketing department has launched a new contest on social media calling on all NC grads.

The contest asks alumni to showcase where they are working, and how their dreams came to life by entering the workforce in their field of study, by posting a selfie on Instagram. Those who enter will have a chance to win prizes.

While NC grads are encouraged to enter, NC faculty members are encouraged to  help spread the word about the contest to grads.

How to enter

1. Take a selfie at work that shows you in action or what the office atmosphere is like.

2.Post it on Instagram and tag @niagaracollege and use the hashtags #ncexperience and #myNCstory.
#ncexperience and #myncstory. Include a blurb on what program you took, when you graduated and a bit about your job or when you started it.

4.Pat yourself on the back and wait to hear if you win!

A series of random draws will be held beginning on August 9.  The first prize pack is a ton of Niagara College swag (backpack, waterbottle, earbuds, umbrella, lanyard,icepack  and more) and $100 for iTunes and a $100 pre-paid Mastercard.

Posts may be featured on the College’s Instagram feed.
