Advance Your Career with Daily Feats
Having a successful career or a great job isn't a one-step goal. Like living healthily, being a good friend, or raising a family, it's a process--a series of small choices and small successes that add up to a better way of life.
DailyFeats is an online social platform that understands this. Powered by users' energy and commitment to doing good, for themselves and others, it's a community where people share and earn rewards for their positive actions. Markus Kolic, DailyFeats' director of content and marketing, says the idea for this community was sparked by the rise of micro-investing websites: "We started thinking of 'micro-actions,'" he explains. "Small events on the Internet can have a big impact."
As an example, one of the many feats a person can complete is taking the stairs. Performing the feat earns you points that are redeemable for coupons and various other goods and services in your area--and it can also earn you praise from other members of the DailyFeats community (and that praise also earns points). It's a win-win: you take a small step toward a healthier way of life, you inspire others, and you receive positive reinforcement and tangible rewards.
There are currently more than 125,000 rewards--available nationwide--that anyone can earn for doing good. New sponsoring companies come on board every month. Markus says, "The beautiful thing about this idea is that it almost sells itself--it's such a win-win. … It allows a brand to connect to something that's essential to what they're trying to do."
Monster.com has joined with DailyFeats; now members of the DailyFeats community can better themselves by strengthening career-related skills or completing tasks on the job.
"At Monster, we want to encourage seekers to do away with the status quo, always aspiring to reach new career heights," says Monster.com chief marketing officer Ted Gilvar. "By teaming up with DailyFeats, we are encouraging them to better themselves--within their careers but, perhaps more importantly, within their everyday lives, too, all while earning rewards along the way."
The new Monster.com feats include:
!yourpotential (work toward a great accomplishment) !newskills (learn new abilities, through classes, training or research), !makeconnections (reach out to someone who might help your future), and !updateresume, among many others.
Check out all the Monster.com feats (and start earning points!) today.
Also check into DailyFeats at South by Southwest (SXSW, March 11-20, 2011, in Austin, Texas). Conference attendees can explore the world of positive actions unlocked by DailyFeats, and use them to navigate all the good things converging on Austin, including special one-time-only SXSW feats like !inspired@SXSW and !network@SXSW.
