Where will your shoes take you?
Ever felt like you were aimlessly following the same path as every one else? It is time to think about what YOU can DO and how FAR your career can go. Will you choose your own direction, walk off the beaten path, embrace the challenges of a non-traditional career? Why don’t you begin by putting on the right shoes and tell us how you will create your own path and where your shoes will take you.
Have fun! Your essay must be 100-350 words, but feel free to get creative with the format. For more details please click the “OFFICIAL RULES” tab above. No more than
one entry per member is permitted and essays must be submitted online by
midnight CST October 15, 2012.
The most important rule is to think big and think bold!
