DateMySchool Launches Holiday Hiring Spree, Plans To Employ 2k College Students
Collegiate dating site, DateMySchool plans to hire 2,000 college students to serve as marketing ambassadors.
What job crisis? Collegiate dating startup, datemyschool is on a holiday hiring spree, and plans to employ 2,000 college students nationwide to serve as on-campus marketing ambassadors.
Datemyschool aims to hire one enthusiastic and hard working student at almost every campus across the country by January 1, 2013 to help boost signups to their online platform. Ambassadors are paid commission on a per-user basis, which means checks can get big: “To some of our best ambassadors, we’ve happily paid out a few thousand dollars a month,” says co-founder Balazs Alexa.
Sensitive to strenuous student schedules, the job offers flexible hours and fun-only promotional campaigns that include physical and digital marketing, event planning, and pitching stories to the campus newspaper.
“Students are busy,” says Alexa. “They don’t have time to commit a whole day to some off-campus internship that pays nothing, chains them to a desk, and wastes their creativity with boring and unfulfilling tasks like scanning documents.”
Providing ambassadors with a valuable experience in marketing, public relations, and advertising, datemyschool exposes their campus reps to the intricacies of promoting a startup and trains them how to build a brand from the grassroots level.
Their application process takes about two minutes, and should any holiday spender want to re-stuff their wallets, they can apply at datemyschool.com/jobs.
