The Dos And Don'ts Of Applying To Be A PINK Campus Rep

The Dos And Don'ts Of Applying To Be A PINK Campus Rep

Applying for your dream job is hard work -- that's what I'm here for.

Hannah Budke

Being a PINK Campus Rep changes you -- I know firsthand. My name is Hannah, and I was the first PINK Campus Representative at Boise State and brought PINK to "The Blue" from 2014 to 2016. Every moment, person, and event changed me. Every photo you see is me surrounded by the best people I have ever met. This program is more than just the brand. So. Much. More.

So, you've decided to apply to be a PINK Campus Representative. Don't confuse yourself -- this is not the type of position you apply for and just hope you get it. You want this experience, it will change your life. But don't worry, I'm here to prepare you.


Go to the events: Once you decide you want to apply to be a Rep, go to the events on your campus (if you haven't already). That is the quickest way to understand what the program is all about.

Do your research. The worst thing you could do is go into this interview unprepared. Look into your Campus Rep program and know what kind of events they've thrown. The more knowledgeable, the better.

Visit the store: Check out what's going on in store. The floorplan changes every few weeks and chances are something in that store was an idea from the Campus Reps. Look at the cheeky phrases on panties and work out tanks. Those come from the Reps.

Have some ideas: A Campus Rep's responsibility is to plan events. Think of some that you could see yourself throwing on your campus -- but be realistic. Nothing is worse than someone pitching an idea they can't execute.

Get involved: A successful Campus Rep needs to be involved. Being in a sorority, on a sports team, in a club or a student organization, or having an on-campus job scores major points! They want to know that you will be able to reach your campus.


Don't apply if you're not passionate. The PINK Campus Representative Program is created to be an extension of the PINK team. Don't just apply to apply. Apply because you want this position. Apply because you're brand loyal and have been wearing PINK since they had green cheetah print bras.

Don't freak out if you don't have much experience. When I applied, I was finishing up my freshman year as a math major. I didn't know anything about digital marketing except my social channels. My passion for the position was evident and was easily what got me the position. You can be taught how to throw an event and grow a social following -- you can't be taught how to love PINK.

Don't try too hard. Bottom line, if you get an interview, you have a shot. They like what they see. Don't stress too much about sounding perfect in the interview. PINK Campus Reps are real people. There's no need to be abnormally prim and proper -- we're college girls after all. Show your personality!

Don't be nervous! If it's meant to happen, it will happen. If you are confident, bubbly, and yourself, everything will be just fine.

Still not sure about applying? The past three years of my life have been spent collaborating with strong women all across the country. I have met my best friends, roommates, and bridesmaids through the PINK Campus Representative Program. PINK is accepting applications now, so seriously, give it a shot!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
