Why Did You Choose Cisco?

College Intern Kayla Viola holds up a collage of some of the pictures posted to Instagram for the #IChoseCisco contest. Kayla came up with the idea for the social media campaign, and she handled the planning and execution.

Tell the world why you chose Cisco. Let's bring in more amazing people like you to apply. Here's your chance to do that—and win a prize.

A social media campaign is underway this week on Instagram: #IChoseCisco. Post a photo on Instagram, with the hashtag #IChoseCisco. Then tag Life at Cisco on Instagram.

The photo has to convey why you chose to work at Cisco. Go to Life at Cisco on Instagram and to see what others have posted so far. You'll see that people are writing the words on special whiteboards, which are available in PDF. But you don't have to use the whiteboards, as long as you deliver a message.

How do you win? You get the most number of likes on your post. Only employees can enter, but everyone can vote. And there will also be a prize for most creative post. Prizes include gift cards.

For printable signs, contest rules and Instagram quick tips, go to the #IChoseCisco Employee Instagram Contest drop box. You'll also find instructions for submitting a photo entry without Instagram, in case your account is private or you're unable to use Instagram.

The contest runs until August 17. Post your picture now and tell the world what’s so great about working here.
