Lighter side: Candidates sing for career help

Stuck in unemployment, there’s only one thing these job candidates could do: Sing for a job.

The “Careereoki” contest, sponsored by Workforce Central Florida and the Orange County Board, allows unemployed contestants to compete for a “career makeover” package, consisting of tuition for a career training course, professional resume help and a $100 gas card.

Contestants are asked to sing work-themed reworkings of popular songs. One participant performed a take on “Summer Nights” from Grease, with lyrics like, “Unemployment happened so fast, never thought this recession would last.”

The winner will be chosen based on originality, creativity and humor.
