It will feature contestants telling their stories about how they quit or left a previous job. “We were in the process of putting together details for a video contest about crazy ways people quit their jobs and then the Jet Blue incident happened,” says Gary Hicks, founder and CEO of “With this contest, we thought it would be fitting to award an honorary prize to Mr. Steven Slater of JetBlue Airways.” Stephen Slater is the JetBlue flight attendant who recently encountered an unruly passenger, made a statement over the intercom saying he was quitting after 20 years of service, grabbed two beers and slid down the emergency chute and went home. “I have flown a lot and can certainly understand why flight attendants might get fed up with some passengers,” Hicks said. “Hopefully Mr. Slater will throw a party for his friends with this prize, check out some of our video contest entries, and then sign up for a free job seeker account on our website.” SkillSniper will gladly award the honorary prize in the form of any type of gift certificate if requested.

The contest is simple to enter. Entrants will submit short video clips up to one minute in length and tell their story of the craziest, funniest or most creative way they quit or left a previous job.
