A day in the life

Purpose of Story πŸ€”

To give people an idea of what it is like to work at a company, beyond job descriptions and slogans. Ask people to film a typical day in their working week. This could include meetings, projects lunch rituals, company socials, and more.

Videos like these can be used to advertise specific job vacancies, or as part of a wider employer brand campaign.

2. Story introduction video

What’s more authentic than a video message to contributors explaining what they need to do? This is the time to really hammer home what the purpose of the Story is, and get the contributors excited to be a part of it.

Intro video

Video introductions allow for a more personal touch to a Story, and puts contributors at ease. Lead by example and explain how they should participate!

3. Story introduction

Contributors are more likely to take part in a Story if the introduction is simple, with a clear instruction as to what they need to do, and how the footage is going to be used.

Story introduction - 24 hours at...

We're documenting a day in the life of Seenit β˜€οΈ, from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed!

We want to know:

  • What time do you wake up? ⏰ Do you do anything before work? How do you get to work?
  • What happens in your day at work? Who do you interact with? How do you spend your lunchtimes?
  • Do you do anything after work? What happens in your evenings?

This is all specific to that ONE day that we ask you to film.

*** EPISODE 1 IS BEING FILMED ON THURSDAY 28TH MARCH ***

Story introduction - A day in the life of...

The story creator gave the subject, Kahn, an extensive set of directions, broken up into scenes, with lots of examples to help guide. Here is what they wrote:

Your Work Day

Consider filming some of the interactions, coffees and experiences you have throughout the day or immediately afterwards. How are you feeling? 

Tip: Show us around! Anything and everything can be uploaded. 

Before Work

Film yourself in the morning before you get to work: How are you feeling about the day ahead? Excited? Is it going to be a challenging day? What are you looking forward to? What do you have to wear? 

Tip: You can film this selfie style or get a friend/flatmate/partner to film you too 

Arriving at Work

Describe what your day ahead looks like: What's the first thing you do when you get there? Who will you meet with ? What are you looking forward to? What are your priorities?

Tip: Make sure you are aware of background noise and somewhere we can hear you!

Reflect on your Day 

At the end of your day, take a few minutes to recap. You can do this in the office, on your commute home, or at home or another location. How do you feel at the end of the day? What did you accomplish? How will you relax this evening after work? What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

Tip: Film this selfie style and don’t be worried about uploading a few takes if needs be - we can always edit out the bloopers :)

We want to give future interns like you a flavour of what it's like to be on the internship programme here. 

Film anything you like and get creative. Think about what you would like to see or know if you were applying, and try to capture your surroundings. 

Deadline is the end of the week and we will send round a reminder before then :) 

Have fun!

Getting contributions βœ…

A few things you can do to encourage contributions are:

  1. Try giving a short deadline. You can always extend it, but giving people less time to submit keeps it front of mind.
  2. Give visual examples in your intro video. Don't just tell people what you want - show them too. This might help get them excited and help them come up with ideas of their own.
  3. Recruit team leaders or people with some influence to help you move things along if you're struggling.
