Share Your Career Story – You Could Win a Kindle Touch

When you complete an interview for one of LatPro Inc’s new career interview websites “Diversity Jobs Street Smart” between now and December 31st, 2011, you could win a new Kindle Touch! This new area of the website is a place where diverse professionals can share their career experiences (good, bad, and ugly) with other diverse professionals. We think this is of much greater value than standard-fare career advice — you can read more about our views here. Now, we invite you to take some time from your day to share the hard life lessons you’ve learned. Yes, we know you are busy, and it is crazy-talk to suggest you spend your free time this way! Crazy unless you enjoy expressing yourself and sharing it with your family, friends or complete strangers… Crazy unless you think your story adds up to something meaningful. Click here to participate.
