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.

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!

What’s The Deal With Women Wearing Makeup Anyways?

Makeup is a form of empowerment for both men and women it should not be seen as a way to hide insecurities.


Many people do not understand why makeup is worn. Many believe it has to do with insecurities, self-esteem issues, and more positive attention to their appearance. However, makeup is more used for empowerment and creativity for both men and women rather than a mask to cover themselves up.

Makeup has been around since ancient Egypt. It would be used for both men and women of all social statuses. According to Reader's Digest, they used makeup.

Makeup is a skill that is used because people enjoy it or appreciate it, obviously, it is not for everyone, but the people that use makeup, use it as a way of armor to empower themselves and the way they feel. It is no different from any other form of self-care people use for empowerment or to feel stronger.

According to Refinery29, our relationship with makeup has evolved over the years it is no longer seen as a way to impress men, but it is a celebration of oneself.

Using makeup gives people a chance to control the way they look and gives them a way to express themselves in their daily lives.

According to Bustle, "they are taking control of their own image and using makeup in a way that empowers them. And that is extremely cool."

Makeup is not limited to just women; it can be used for men as well. For instance, back in 2016, James Charles was the first male Covergirl. This allows all people to be involved in the empowerment and creativity that makeup gives us.

According to Health, beauty is for everyone, no matter what you look like or who you are that is what makes it so amazing.
