HOW IT WORKS / HOW TO WIN
Participants will submit a text and video description of their innovation. In both the text description and the video, please explain: the problem you were solving, the actual innovation, how you implemented the idea, the results your effort, the number and populations of students or employers or other stakeholders that you served, and how you hope to iterate more on your innovation.
The Collective is interested in submissions related to unique connections for career service within the campus ecosystem, scaling career services to reach more, career in the classroom initiatives, data visualization and story telling efforts, new models of career on campus, innovation in diversity and inclusion with career development, successful change efforts, and other novel ideas.
Submissions must show how you solved a clear problem, and may not be in the initial ideation phase; the innovation needs to have been implemented at least once prior to submission, even if as a pilot.
All innovations remain the intellectual property of the university submitting to the showcase.
Finalists are featured in an our online showcase that details their project. They are also recognized in Collective newsletters and social channels.
Top 3 winners will receive an award in the mail to display in their office, will be showcased in the online repository, as well as in a 60-minute online Accelerator, and will receive a $500 credit to use on not-previously purchased Career Leadership Collective events or services within one calendar year of the showcase winners being announced.
