Using her trademarked phrase, Oprah Winfrey eliminated the stress and worry of being hired at her latest â€œYou Get a Jobâ€ campaign stop at MSUMâ€™s Gaede Stage Wednesday.
After announcing the end of the 25-season-long â€œOprah Winfrey Show,â€ talk-show host Oprah Winfrey began touring campuses nationwide promoting her â€œYou Get a Jobâ€ campaign aiming to eliminate the lack of jobs available to recent graduates.
Winfrey, who began the 2004 season by giving everyone in her audience a new Pontiac G6, decided that it was time to try a new giveaway, one that could top the giveaways of the past while helping eliminate a growing problem.
Much like her other giveaways, the job giveaway came as a complete surprise to the students in the audience, many of whom said the timing couldnâ€™t have been better.
â€œEverybody gets a job! Everybody gets a job!â€ Winfrey shouted over the cries of disbelief at Gaede Stage. â€œYou get a job and you get a job and you get job!â€ Winfrey continued, running around the stage and pointing at students.
Each job was handpicked by Winfrey and her staff and tailored to each student present.
One student said, â€œI know sheâ€™s Oprah and everything, and I know she gives away cars and stuff but can she really do this?â€
Another student noted, â€œHell yeah she can do this! I used to watch her show everyday with my mom after school and if I learned anything from that show, itâ€™s that Oprah can give away anything she wants. I got a job today! Woo hoo!â€
Harpo Productions, Winfreyâ€™s production company, assured the winners that their prizes are guaranteed to â€œbe available to them until spring of 2012â€ and that any pre-hiring test costs would be covered.
