Get a #WakeUpCall from {Giveaway}

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  While a sample was received to facilitate this post, all opinions remain 100% mine.

After spending many years in school and obtaining my Master of Science in Biology, I landed a wonderful job that I adored for seventeen years.  Unfortunately, you never know what life will bring and I was laid off due to Federal budget cuts last year.  To say that I was in a state of shock would be an understatement.

From the very first day, I spent hours online on websites such as searching for a new job.  After eight long months of unemployment, I finally found a new job which I hope will turn out to be even better than the last.  While it took being laid off to provide my Wake Up Call, many Americans are currently sitting in jobs they dislike or will never provide a sense of fulfillment.

On behalf of, Brian Baumgartner from the TV series “The Office” provided a few unsuspecting hard working employees with their own #WakeUpCall. goes inside these offices setting up hidden cameras and horn traps in workstations.  The selected employees show up to work thinking it’s going to be a normal workday, but little do they know, they are in for quite the surprise!

Does your office need a shake up?  Film your own funny wake up call video and post on’s Facebook page using the hashtag, #WakeUpCall.  They will repost the ones they think are the funniest on their Twitter and Facebook!  Then, head over to to “find better” by getting the latest on job search advice, networking and cool jobs, and other tips and advice on managing your career.

To jump start your new career, one lucky reader will win a $50 VISA Gift Card and swag including branded lunch cooler, duffle bag, backpack cinch bag, and snow globe.  Enter below:
