New year, new MyKindaCrowd… okay, not new but improved
Monday, 6th of January
Everyone at MyKindaCrowd is dedicated to making sure our crowd are connected, prepared and ready for the working world. Not only do we connect you with great companies, we give you experience to add to your CV, take to an interview, and we run great workshops!
We now want to make sure that not only challenge winner’s benefit from MKC, we also want to give all our crowd the chance to be ready for the world of work. Whether that be going to university, and need help completing a personal statement, or looking for work experience and work, or having CV and interview training.
We’re sure you would have seen the recent news about youth unemployment; well we want to make sure this situation improves. We believe more needs to be done to ensure young people are work ready. To support this, we are now rewarding more of you with help, support, advice and life skills.
You will now be able to ‘purchase’ prizes with your MyKindaCrowd points. These can be earned by entering challenges, taking part on social media, following companies, referring friends to join MyKindaCrowd, and of course, if you win a challenge!
You can see your point score on your personal dashboard. To cash your points, all you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, ‘Cash my points’, along with your points total. We will then give you the upcoming dates for your chosen prize.
