Promoting a Poetry Competition, Volunteer Positions and Career Advice

Often I write only poetry (and occasionally prose) on my blog, but today I am going to be posting something a little different.

First, I will like to announce the Good Morning Bedtime Story (GMBS) international mental health poetry competition is still accepting submissions until April 20th.

To submit, send up to three pieces in .doc or .docx format to: gmbscompetition@gmail.com

Each piece needs to have pertinence towards mental health; needs to be 1.5cm spaced and can be up to 100 lines in length.

Prizes for winning entries include the opportunity to be published in a GMBS anthology or on the GMBS website; books of previously published poems; and certificates.

Moreover, GMBS is still looking for people willing to volunteer their time to assist with this online organization. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to: gmbssubmissions@gmail.com, and explain why mental health matters to you and what ideas you have to further promote the organization. On another note, if you are interested in working as a moderator for the GMBS forum, be sure to express your interest in the e-mail. The forum can be found at the following link: http://gmbs.freeforums.net/

Lastly, for university students in Australia (although there are similar opportunities in other countries), Universum, an organization dedicated to helping students find the right career, is still hosting their short Wet Feet Career Test.

Discussing the Universum Career Test

Hey all!

During this post I intend to quickly discuss the Universum Wet Feet Career Test.

This is an annually run event for students at university who are uncertain of the future career paths they may wish to undertake. After and during university, a vast number of students may have the misfortune of being unable to acquire a job, and Universum hopes to cut this number in half.

By undertaking the test, students acquire information about the careers that best suit their skills, and companies and employers that share like-minded attributes and ambitions.

Depending on the country you are located in, there will be different individuals showcasing the test online. As I am located in Australia, the below link will lead to the test for Australian university students to complete if they wish.
