Choose ATL Launches the Ultimate Job Interview Contest
This summer, we announced the launch of the next phase of our Choose ATL campaign. Along with BBDO, Porter Novelli, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber, we’re continuing to grow the grassroots initiative by sharing why Atlanta is such a great place to live, work, and start a family. A new ad campaign showcasing exciting facts about Atlanta has launched, highlighting everything from walkability to our amazing food scene.
However, there’s another focus of phase two of the grassroots initiative: education. This doesn’t just mean showcasing the 66 superior universities that call Atlanta home, but also encouraging the brilliant minds that graduate from schools across the country to choose Atlanta as their city after college. In order to do so, we needed something big. Something that would show why Atlanta is the best place for recent grads to build a life after graduation. So we teamed up with the Metro Atlanta Chamber to launch the Ultimate Job Interview Contest.
The Ultimate Job Interview is a contest for college students or recent grads who want to make their mark in Atlanta. Contestants submit a 90-second video about why Atlanta is a city where they can make their mark, and the finalists have an opportunity to win $10,000, an all expenses paid trip to the city and interviews with five top Atlanta executives.
It’s our hope that through this contest, we can show college graduates all that Atlanta has to offer and attract and retain the amazing talent that comes out of universities from across the nation. This city has limitless opportunities for new grads. 14 Fortune 500 companies call Atlanta home. The economy is ranked 10th in the entire nation. With more than 69,000 available jobs here, students have ample opportunity to find work.
But it’s not just about the career opportunities. Time ranked Atlanta as the second best city for Millennials due to its lower cost of living, great economic opportunities and fun lifestyle. Atlanta offers exciting nightlife, a delicious food and beverage scene, and more than 245 neighborhoods to call home. It’s not just a great place to start a career… it’s a great place to start a life.
If you call Atlanta home, we hope you’ll join us in sharing the Ultimate Job Challenge with college students and encouraging them to choose Atlanta after graduation.
