CareerVillage.org is a website that students visit to get their college and career questions answered by actual working professionals. Getting guidance from people who have once been in your shoes enables you to better prepare for the future you want. We're hosting a monthly $1,000 scholarship giveaway that will be awarded to one student who posts two (eligible) questions onto the site by the end of the month.
Here's what you need to know:
To participate in this scholarship giveaway we're asking you to post two questions of your own on CareerVillage.org. By posting your questions, you're not only getting personalized information, insight, and advice from industry experts, but you're surfacing the answers to questions thousands of other students like you also want to know (aka killing two birds!).
The winner will be selected based on question quality and financial need. You must ask college and/or career-related questions that require an answer from an actual human being! In other words, post more subjective questions. Don't post a question like "what is an architect?" because the answer can easily be found with a quick Google search. Instead, ask something like "what was the hardest part about becoming an architect?". This is the type of question that any architect can answer, and their answers will provide you with a ton of valuable insight into what their career path was like!
If you ask questions you can find the answer to with a 10 second Google search, or off-topic questions (e.g. "why is the sky blue?") they will be removed from the site and you will not be considered when we choose a scholarship winner!
Before you post your questions, it's a good idea to search CareerVillage.org first to make sure your question hasn't already been asked and answered. "Duplicate" questions usually get removed by moderators. But fear not: it's rare that two students ask for the exact same piece of advice.
Don't have questions? Come on, everyone has questions! Especially when it comes to your future. Here are some ideas: Ask about what it takes to get a particular job, or about a "day in the life" of a career you find interesting.
