  • (1888PressRelease) August 17, 2010 - Cincinnati, Ohio - UGrowU, a Cincinnati based company announced today a new video scholarship contest that will spark creativity in students. The highest rated video will win.

    UGrowU aims to let the students explore their true potential. They will be able to add a personal touch to their resume introduction by recording it in a video and uploading it. Students will have to create an account, which is free. They will have to submit an original video that addresses the question, "What Does Your Dream Career Include" along with their strengths, weakness, aspirations, and accomplishments.

    Students often get overwhelmed while finding an innovative way to impress companies. A resume is the first informal contact for a company and it is a chance for them to be acquainted with a student. A video resume acts more personalization and adds more spice to a student's profile. It can help the students to separate from their peers.

    "Companies might often ignore great prospective candidates due to common or poorly designed resumes," said Dustin Hubbard, co-founder, UGrowU. "The Dream Career video scholarship contest will enable the students to proudly talk about their Dream career. Moreover, it will enable the potential employer the ability to better understand your interests and personality, which a traditional resume simply cannot convey. No longer will a student be a piece of paper."

    The best video will be selected on a voting basis. The first place gets a scholarship of $5,000. There are other eye-candies for a students' such as cash prizes for 2nd and 3rd place, Apple iPad, professional resume, book packages, and much more. UGrowU hopes that not only should the prizes excite the students but also the pride to make them stand out from others through a video resume.
