My 40 Days


Last week on the blog we told you about this amazing competition from Adzuna to find ‘The Graduate of the Year 2014‘ – if you haven’t already entered, what are you waiting for? Go! Now!

Anyway, last year’s winner was Caleb Meakins, a 24 year old Civil Engineering graduate. Caleb won £1000 cash, a CV mentoring session with a top UK entrepreneur and an awesome internship at top UK company – amazing, right?!

Caleb decided that he would take a year out once he graduated to launch his exciting project ‘My 40 Days’. The premise behind this project is complete 40 challenges that have been submitted by the public via facebook and twitter which are deemed ‘impossible to achieve’. In facing rejection head-on, Caleb aims to change the way that he deals with failure and hopes to inspire graduates across the world by demonstrating that failing is actually a useful experience in today’s competitive graduate job market.

You can go and check out Caleb’s project at, you can suggest a challenge on Facebook or Twitter, and you can see all of Caleb’s videos on his YouTube channel to see new challenges as they are uploaded!

We wish Caleb the best of luck with his project, and his future career!
