#RUTGERSWORKS Career Challenge Game

 

At University Career Services we know how hard Rutgers students work! In fact, we are your biggest fans! To show our support of your hard work and to encourage you to set aside time to focus on your future, we are providing you with an incentive…FREE TUITION and other prizes. Complete the challenge and you will be entered to win free tuition for Spring 2019.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE CHALLENGE?

You must be a current Rutgers University-New Brunswick undergraduate student.

WHAT IS IT?

Specifically, if you complete 10 challenge requirement stamps you will be entered into a drawing to win free tuition for Spring 2019. You can also earn badges through your participation and engagement with our social media. First-year students will also have the opportunity to win a special prize which is a $200 Amazon gift certificate. Also, each month (i.e., September, October, and November) we will raffle off a $50 Amazon gift certificate to those who have completed the challenge along the way.

The first monthly drawing will be announced on Wednesday, October 3. Students with five or more stamps are eligible for the gift card raffles. Our raffle winners will be emailed and announced on social media. When you use one of our qualifying resources or attend a qualifying program, you will receive a challenge badge.

You can score extra entries by earning additional stamps.

  • 10 Stamps = 1 Challenge Raffle Entry
  • 20 Stamps = 2 Challenge Raffle Entries
  • 30 Stamps = 3 Challenge Raffle Entries

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

  1. Log in at careers46.rutgers.edu/passport using your NetID and password.  The first time you log in you will need to create a Challenge profile.
