Yesterday I was delighted to find out that the Microsoft Young Britain Works citizen project has been awarded a bronze medal in the 2011 Microsoft EMEA PR awards! A huge achievement for the project but the real thanks goes to those Microsoft Interns who have managed to dedicate a large part of their daily roles making sure the project runs smoothly.
I mentioned Young Britain Works, the Microsoft Citizen Project I had become involved with, for the first time in November. Young Britain Works is part of the Microsoft Britain Works pledge to assist 500,000 people in the world of work by 2012 but instead focuses on a new audience, a younger audience.
Young Britain Works is largely driven by a group of Microsoft UK Interns who have used Social Media methods to provide advice to young people surrounding career choices and skills. The main communication point of this project is to use Facebook to drive engagement. However the project has also been using other social marketing methods.
How can you help the project?
It sounds trivial but please ‘Like’ the Young Britain Works Facebook Page. More importantly please recommend the Facebook page to any relevant people you know.
This is still a project in its infancy and so any help possible would be much appreciated.
