The Apprentice, Round 2
I have been overwhelmed by the quality of applicants for the apprenticeship!
In order to give both you and me a better idea of the fit (which is just as important as your personal skillz) I have five projects for you to complete. To be true to the nature of the job — and so I can learn what I need to about you — I’m not going to provide any further instructions, parameters or clarifications beyond what you see here.
- Apply to attend TEDActive 2011 – if you get accepted and get the job with me, I will pay for you to attend. I will also choose two additional applicants and pay $2000 towards their registration fee. Email your acceptance letter ASAP to the mail link on RafeFurst.com.
- Create a Prezi – my friends at TrustArt.org unearthed the true story of the Statue of Liberty, which is not what the history books tell you. Your task is to create a compelling presentation about how the Statue of Liberty came to be using Prezi.com then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Kickstart something good – Create a campaign on kickstarter.com for something you care about. Set the funding deadline to Sept 15. Post a link to your kickstarter in the comments below.
- Write for my blog – Create a post for EmergentFool.com and submit it in the comments below.
- The meta-project – Come up with a project that you believe will best showcase the abilities of the perfect candidate for this apprentice position. Post that project description in the comments below. The one with the most “Likes” will be assigned to all applicants (including you) on Sept 16.
One final thought before you begin: if you look at the above list and are not excited by each of the projects, the apprenticeship is not a good fit for you. However, if you complete any of them, I will add you to the beta community of Possibility Accelerators that my apprentice will help me curate….
