A search for the 15 most inspiring applicants who will be paid to do what they love
Volcom is searching the Earth, looking for 15 people who are ready to make their passion their paycheck. The Southern California-based lifestyle and apparel company today officially launched "#ThisFirst" – a global initiative seeking the most inspired and dedicated applicants who will be offered an opportunity to ditch their day job and focus on the one thing they wish they could do full time.
To apply, Volcom is throwing out the traditional job application and replacing it with a simple question, "What do you want to put first in your life?" Starting today, video or photo submissions can be uploaded to Instagram, Facebook, or http://vol.cm/thisfirst, with applications accepted through June 21. Contest winners in the U.S. will be rewarded $5,000 and matched with Volcom mentors to help realize their vision. Over six weeks, their work will be promoted across the brand's digital channels and featured at a wrap party in September at the Volcom Garden in Austin, Texas.
