PSFK Presents The Future Of Work

As we wrap up the second week of our month-long Future of Work series, we’re taking a look back at the topics covered as part of the Social Network-Place.

PSFK readers, we want to hear from you.

Prizes are beginning to pile up around our office and while we’d be happy to start taking this loot home home ourselves, we want to give it to you , so come join the conversation.  To win, take a look at each of the categories below and if you have an example of your own to add, then be sure share it with us. We’re keeping tabs of all the posts and the best submissions will win one of the many cool prizes we’re offering. Be sure to include the proper hashtags (see below) so that we know who you are. Stay tuned because next week we’ll be announcing the next theme in the Future Of Work Series.

The Social Network-Place:

Can Social Networks Help You Land Your Next Job?

PSFK is asking readers to tell us how you found your current job? Send us your answers here for a chance to win a year long LinkedIn Pro upgrade.

Was your job hunt a pain? Did you end up with a job you think isn’t the best fit? What went wrong and what you think could go better? Share your thoughts here and feel free to Tweet us @psfk using #FoW #SocialHiring.

How Social Tools Are Changing The Way We Collaborate 

PSFK is asking readers to tell us how you stay organized? Snap a quick picture of what you use to stay organized at work or share a link to your favorite collaboration apps and tweet it to us at @psfk with the hashtags #FoW #DigitalOrder, for a chance to win Evernote Moleskin notebooks for you and your team.

How Are Companies Using Gaming To Improve The Way We Work? 

PSFK is asking readers to tell us how games factor into your workday (in the name of productivity, of course).  Drop us a line and tell us what works for you or send us a related link of gamification in the workplace that we might have missed.

Tweet it to us at @psfk with the hashtags #FoW #WorkifyGames, for a chance to win the classic Settlers of Catan Board Game to play with your co-workers during your off hours.

How Can Companies Reinvent Employee Training?

PSFK is asking readers to tell us how you and your co-workers are learning from one another. Drop us a line and tell us what has helped you move ahead in your career or send us a related link of social education in the workplace that you’ve found interesting.

Tweet it to us at @psfk with the hashtags #FoW #SocialEDU, for a chance to win an iPod Nano for all the bite-sized lessons you share.

Over the next 4-8 weeks we want to start a conversation around what you see as possible in the Future of Work.  Be sure to follow the conversation on PSFK and participate in the daily competitions. Tweet us your ideas to @psfk using #FoW
