With side hustles becoming increasingly common for ambitious Australians looking to supplement their income by monetising their skills outside of their day job, gaming and eSports talent agency Click Management has partnered with Lenovo Legion to offer Aussies a 1:1 mentorship with some of the country’s best streamers.
With only 37% of Aussies having considered a career in streaming, this new partnership is aiming to promote streaming as a viable side-hustle for Aussies looking to monetise their passion.
As the second phase of their successful ‘Epprenticeship program’, Lenovo Legion will offer ANZ gamers the chance to take their passion for gaming to new heights with a prize that includes Lenovo Legion equipment – valued at over $3,000 – and two money-can’t-buy mentorship opportunities with the Click Management team.
“Streaming continues to be an immensely lucrative and rewarding space and, in many ways, is the perfect ‘side hustle’,” Click Management chief executive Grace Watkins says.
“Many successful streamers that we’ve worked with started their careers while holding down a day job or studies. We’re looking forward to collaborating with Lenovo Legion for phase II of their ‘Epprenticeship program to share some valuable advice on how to take a passion for streaming to a new level.”
Lenovo Legion gaming business development manager Ben Williams explains why Lenovo has launched their second Epprenticeship: “Off the back of overwhelming support for the first Epprenticeship, we wanted to give ANZ gamers another chance to kick-start their dreams in this great industry. Earlier this year, we saw hundreds of applicants across Australia and New Zealand demonstrate their passion for a career in the industry.
“The first Epprenticeship winner, Amy Campbell, has become a part of the Legion family and is beyond expanding her knowledge of viable careers in gaming, she has now gone on to start to build one! This time around, we will be offering one winner the opportunity to win prizes and mentorship that will help them launch their side-hustle dreams”.
To apply, Lenovo is asking entertaining and passionate gamers to submit their application here with a short video about why they should be the next Lenovo Legion Gaming Epprentice and demonstrating your passion for gaming.
