Have you ever gone to a concert, sporting event, or festival and seen young people walking around in branded shirts handing out giveaways or asking you to come participate in a game or “experience?” Or maybe you’ve seen people giving out samples of food or beverages at your local grocery or superstore..
Those people you saw are Brand Ambassadors – “people hired by a company or organization to promote their products or services. The brand ambassador is meant to embody the corporate identity in appearance, demeanor, values and ethics.” Source: wikipedia
If you are looking for a high-paying, part-time, flexible, and FUN job, where you will also learn valuable skills, then being a Brand Ambassador might just be for you!
Here are 5 reasons why being a brand ambassador is the best college job!
Brand Ambassador jobs typically pay anywhere between $15 – $30 per hour..sometimes more depending on the client/brand you are representing, and the type of event you are working. There are very few part-time, flexible jobs out there that pay such a high hourly rate!
(By the way, if you were wondering, we pay one of the highest rates in the industry – $20-$30 per hour PLUS BONUSES!)
2. It’s Flexible!
Have a big exam coming up, or want to take a trip back home to see friends and family? Or maybe an event or product doesn’t interest you? No worries! As a Brand Ambassador, you can pick and choose when you work. And you wont be penalized! Choose the events that work with YOUR schedule.
3. You Learn Valuable Skills!
As a Brand Ambassador you’re the face of a brand/company. That’s a pretty important (and awesome!) job. Unless you are working a long program, you will likely be asked to represent a different product, to different types of people, at a different location, AND at a different time/day of the week every time you work.
No two days will be alike
In order to be a successful Brand Ambassador you have to be a self-starter..to be a very successful Brand Ambassador you have to be a hustler. You have to be able to manage your time well, and juggle lots of moving parts. And you have to be an expert at planning ahead. But at the end of the day, these are all very valuable skills that you will take with you as you progress in your career. Which brings me to point 4.
4. It Looks Great On Your Resume!
Employers and recruiters will be impressed to see that you worked as a Brand Ambassador in college as it likely means you have superior communication and interpersonal skills, you have worked with global brands, and you know how to function as part of a team.
Not only that, but many successful Brand Ambassadors go on to be Field Marketing Managers – the people in charge of the success of the branded campaigns/activations, and ultimately in charge of the Brand Ambassadors. So there is growth potential if you want it!
5. It’s a lot of fun!
Think about it – while your friends are doing the same dead-end jobs, folding clothes, or serving coffee and cold eggs at a local diner – you’re out there..interacting with people, representing well-known brands (many of them market leaders in their category), and working amazing events!
It takes a special type of person to be a Brand Ambassador, which oftentimes means you meet a lot of interesting people at events – some of whom will become your good friends.
