Burbank, Calif., March 7, 2007 -- More nerve-wracking than a trip to the board room, how about having to interview with 300 million Americans to see if you'll land your dream job! On center stage are the 100 most creative finalists from the CareerBuilder.com-Disney Dream "Job" online video search who are competing for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to live out a Disney Dream "Job" for a day.
Beginning March 6 and running through March 30, America can check out the video auditions online at www.careerbuilder.com/disneydreamjobs and click to view and vote for their favorite Jungle Cruise Skipper, Haunted Mansion Butler or Maid, Pirate, Princess-in-Waiting or Disney Park Parade Performer.
The five applicants in each category who receive the most support will get the chance to live out their honorary dream job for a day. The winners will travel to the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, Calif., in June 2007 during the grand opening of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.
"We have been overwhelmed by the response. We have received submissions from every U.S. state and thousands of people visit the contest site daily," said Michael Mendenhall, executive vice president, global marketing, Disney Destinations. "The creativity of the auditions has been astounding and we have seen everything from would-be Jungle Cruise Skippers navigating the treacherous waters of their swimming pools to Disney Pirates plundering and pillaging their own living rooms! This really has captured the imagination of the public and will be one tough choice for America."
Dream "Job" wanna-bes were asked to send in a video that showcased their most original and creative attributes, including why they want to work at a Disney Park, qualifications and skills for their desired position and reasons why this is their Disney Parks Dream "Job."
