Summer Experience Photo Contest! #UWCCPhoto

Take a photo capturing one of your summer experiences (internship, volunteer work, job shadow, travel or job) and submit it to the Career Center via Twitter or Instagram using your computer, tablet, or mobile device. We are looking for creative and interesting photos of you on the job, the city, objects, or landscapes that might be associated with your summer experience.

How to Submit
It’s easy! Log in to your personal Twitter or Instagram account, take or upload a new picture, and make sure to hashtag #UWCCPhoto. Please also include a caption to your photo explaining the context (Ex: “Making some sales calls from the office").

*Important Note- If your Twitter or Instagram profile is set to private (i.e. only your followers can see your posted content) and you still want to submit your entry, first make your profile public, submit your post via instructions above with #UWCCPhoto, then go back and make your profile private again. This will allow us to track the submission.

Photos must be posted between August 22nd-September 24th. Check out our tagboard page to view all submissions:
