Win a job at Tata

Best praise songs for Bolt will win a job or a ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion

The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE - AL­WYN VILJOEN

TATA is chal­leng­ing read­ers to try out for a job or a ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion worth R25 000 in the car di­vi­sion by test driv­ing the Tata Bolt.

“Tell us why you love it and you could win an ex­cit­ing new job!” states the new com­pe­ti­tion.

Asked if the job is a con­tract po­si­tion or per­ma­nent, Larry da Costa, na­tional sales and oper­a­tions man­ager at Ac­cor­dian In­vest­ments (which sells Tata in SA) told Wheels the job is per­ma­nent, and what is more, it will suit the win­ner’ qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

“Our ob­jec­tive is to em­power and sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of a po­ten­tial high achiever.

“Our or­gan­i­sa­tion and group in to­tal em­ploys more than 45 000 peo­ple that cover var­i­ous de­part­ments such as mar­ket­ing, fi­nance, tech­ni­cal, sales etc.

“Our ob­jec­tive is to place some­body in one of those de­part­ments.

“There is no va­cant po­si­tion that has been marked, how­ever we will em­ploy a can­di­date who shows good ini­tia­tive and some­one we see who can grow within the or­gan­i­sa­tion,” Da Costa said.

To en­ter, read­ers will have to go to a Tata dealer and book the Bolt for a test drive.

Dur­ing the test drive, the as­pir­ing Tata em­ployee must take a photo fea­tur­ing the Tata Bolt and tell Tata about their favourite fea­ture in the car.

“You can write a re­view or blog post, com­pose a song or a poem, or even make a video … the choice is yours,” states Tata.

Test driv­ers then have to up­load and share their en­try on sev­eral plat­forms by De­cem­ber 31, 2015, which is when the com­pe­ti­tion closes.

For most this means up­load­ing the en­try onto your Face­book wall or Twit­ter and tag­ging TataMo­torsSA with #WinABolt.

But for a bet­ter chance of win­ning, com­peti­tors should tick all the boxes listed by Tata, which were a re­view, blog post, poster, flyer, so­cial me­dia post, print ad­vert, per­haps a poem on In­sta­gram tagged as #WinABolt; and a YouTube video on which the #WinABolt and the URL on the TataMo­torsSA Face­book page are linked.

Get at least 100 likes

Con­tes­tants who are not sure of gen­er­at­ing at least 100 Likes on their post need not en­ter, for that is the limit Tata wants for any en­try to be con­sid­ered el­i­gi­ble for en­try into the com­pe­ti­tion.

Oh, and don’t in­clude a ve­hi­cle other than the Tata Bolt in any of the post­ings. That will also nul­lify your en­try.

The per­son whose Bolt photo and fea­ture de­scrip­tion is the best will win a Tata Bolt to the value of up to R132 995 ex VAT, and a job at Tata’s head of­fice in Johannesburg. — WR.

How well can you sing the Tata Bolt’s praises? If your so­cial me­dia post­ings and even print ad­vert of the fea­ture you like the most in the Bolt is good enough, Tata will of­fer you a job.
