Izzy here. One of the major benefits of joining our chapter, HCJ, is participating in JCI HI’s Competitions and Training.
There will be a slew of events tailored to you meeting like-minded professionals, competing, and just enjoying each other’s company. This includes (1) Karaoke Battle at Tipsy Pig; (2) Writing, Speaking, and You’re Hired Competition; and (3) Speakers on various topics on the final day.
Definition: HOWES SPEAK UP
You have a voice. We want to hear it! Develop your public speaking skills with this competition. Give yourself an opportunity to hone in a skill we all so desperately need in the professional world. Stop being shy at meetings, when we all know, you are an active young citizen and have something great to say!
Definition: WRITE UP
You have a voice, but don’t necessarily have to vocalize it, so let’s write it! As professionals, we write emails and post information many times in a day. Use this opportunity to utilize your writing skills and improve how you share your voice in writing.
Definition: YOU’RE HIRED
The Online Professional Networking Resume/Interview competitions are held to provide a practical skill and highlight the most outstanding members. This competition typically requires participants to provide a LinkedIn Profile to highlight professional, personal and Jaycee accomplishments. It will also encompass an elevator speech and complete a panel interview as if applying for the job of a “Executive Director”.
