Managing Director 4 A Day contest: where are the women?

20 Sep

Three early birds got their entries in this week to be able to boss us around on October 17 and take home the $500.

Here’s what they have in common: they are all male. Two are from U Vic and the other from Camosun.

I recall during our Zombie Intern Contest there was a lot of talk about the lack of female entries….and speculation that the theme of red-mouthed, drooling dead people was somehow off-putting to them.

We thought this theme would lead to a different result. But…

Props to Connor Bildfell, David Lin and Alex Rabu for being first in!

U VIc student David Lin

Camosun student Alex Rabu

Their entries will be sent to our judges on Friday evening, along with the others we receive this week. A shortlist of 3 will be posted to our Facebook page for a public vote next week.

You can read what the winner’s day might look like here.

    Sorry Jen, gotta be a full-time student. Our next contest will be for one-course female students with a student ID card, which I think you will qualify for.

    Thanks Jen…be interesting to see how students market themselves, given their interest in the business.

    Wish I was in the country for this! But – I must say – although the female candidates are MIA – great male candidates! Way to go Connor and David. UVic represent!

    Cheers Stef! I am holding out for some great female entries to come rolling in today and tomorrow. I sure love the spirit that the UVic entries are showing. Enjoy wherever you are!
