Engadget giveaway: win an Elite Edition AR.Drone courtesy of Riviera Partners!

Flying a quadcopter around the park all day sounds like fun, but it could be more than just a time killer. Today's tech toy could be the gateway to tomorrow's valuable job skill and even piloting a camera-enabled drone could lead to a farming or film career. Helping tech industry folks find work is what Riviera Partners is all about, and it's graciously provided us with two Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition quadcopters for a couple of lucky Engadget readers this week. Riviera Partners is committed to building up the tech community by getting talented, innovative people like developers and engineers into jobs where they can see their potential blossom. Having someone in the know with clients like Twitter, Dropbox and LinkedIn to help you navigate the notoriously fickle world of tech certainly couldn't hurt. Whether you're full time or actively searching the job market, you should always make time for fun. So head on down to the Rafflecopter widget for up to three chances at winning one of these Parrot Elite Editions. An amateur drone camera operator for music videos could always be your fallback skill.

Winners: congratulations to Joshua J., Indianapolis, IN and Tosin A., Sunnyvale, CA.
