Construction Careers Champions!

October is when we will be hosting Waypoint, but it is also Careers in Construction Month (CICM)! In celebration, we want to gather input from our Community and showcase how impactful and rewarding career paths in the building industry are. Between August 24th and September 24th, share a short clip responding to any of our prompts below, and you will be featured at Waypoint, in the OpenSpace Community, and across our social media platforms!

 

🎥 VIDEO GUIDELINES

  • Record a video of yourself responding to any of the prompts below. *Bonus points if you record at a jobsite or with construction in the background for extra allure 😉*
  • Make sure to start the video by introducing yourself! (Name, Company, Role) We want viewers to get to know you.
  • If you want to respond to multiple prompts, please submit your response to each prompt separately (i.e. if you want to respond to 5 prompts, you will be submitting 5 different videos). There is no limit to the number of videos you can submit.
  • Your video should be between 10-30 seconds long. 
  • 🗣 Please make sure your audio is good! We want to clearly hear your message.
  • Submit your video through this form. If your video is hosted on another platform (i.e. YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, TikTok), the form lets you just submit the URL. If your video is a standalone file, the form also lets you just upload your file. You have choices!
  • NOTE: If you post anywhere on social media, don’t forget to include the hashtag #OSCareersInConstruction❗️

🚨 It's been almost one month since we shared out this call for videos, and wow, do we love the submissions so far; please keep them coming! 

🗓 We know folks have wanted to submit a video but need more time, so we are extending the deadline to Monday, September 26th (11:59 PM PDT). Due to the number of requests from people interested in participating but wanting a few extra days to get their video done, we are excited to see what you have to share.

🎥 But that's not all; if you're reading this and are interested in sharing a video about your passion for working in the construction industry, check out a sample video from @Taylor Anderson, Customer Success Manager at OpenSpace, who came from the construction industry, for inspiration!

👏 Submit your video through this form 👏
