Making the Brand

Call them tastemakers or trendsetters, fashion arbiters or brand evangelists. As more and more companies look to break into the coveted market of 18-to-22-year-olds, businesses are using college sudents to directly preach their gospels. Each year, brand ambassador programs attract thousands of eager college students looking to promote the “next big thing” at their respective institutions. Typically, students sign up for a flexible gig that provides cash, free swag, and a resume-boosting way to meet new people. In the process they also get to build up work experience and gain professional skills in marketing and brand development. It’s a smart strategy for companies as well. After all, what better way to build up credibility than by hiring cool college kids as living, breathing embodiments of your brand?

So to streamline the process I have compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions (and their answers) about my future and career goals.

FM imagines what the job hunt would be like if the lesser-known companies you really wanted to work for came to campus. Peruse at your will, but not for too long—deadlines are fast approaching, and any of these jobs would be better than living in grandma’s basement (or would they? The ol’ gal does make a mean pecan pie).
