Cool Job Alert: Intern Queen Campus Ambassador!

For the past two years, I have served as the Intern Queen Inc. campus ambassadors for Florida State University. Since I was involved with the creation of the program back in the fall of 2010, it makes me especially sad to have to say good-bye. Since I am graduating next spring & will not be on FSU’s campus next semester, I am looking for the next rockstar student to fill my shoes!

As a campus ambassador, it is your mission to spread the importance of interning & how InternQueen.com can help students find the internship of their dreams. You are responsible for blogging & will be assigned larger projects every 1-2 months. These projects will vary but nearly always involve a competition with a fabulous prize. I won the HOT LIST competition last fall & won a Lenova laptop!

In my opinion, the major benefit of becoming a campus ambassador is the network you are introduced to. We currently have over 100 ambassadors nationwide. You will be able to utilize this network to get advice or even referrals for an internship. You might even be lucky enough to meet a few of them at one of our meet ups! A HUGE perk is being able to access the intern queen herself, Lauren Berger, whenever you need her.

Interested in applying? Shoot me over an email with your interest, year in school, campus involvement (if applicable), why you want to be the next FSU campus ambassador & any questions you might have for me. Deadline to apply is November 11th so make sure you email me ASAP. I will be selecting the next campus ambassador the following week. GOOD LUCK!

Events: Urban Outfitters Invades Tallahassee!

Are you tired of the lack of shopping in Tallahassee? Are you sick of driving to Jacksonville, Tampa, and/or Orlando just to get your shopping fix in? Then do I have good news for you!

For the first time ever, Urban Outfitters is taking it’s store on tour. The purpose of this tour is to bring the Urban Outiftters shopping experience to cities without a permanent Urban Outfitters location. Starting on Monday, October 17th, Urban Outfitters will set up shop on the corner of East College Avenue & South Duval Street. The store will be open for business on Monday, October 17th to Thursday, October 20th from 12pm-8pm.

This Urban Outfitters store is unlike any other pop up shop. They used two shipping containers to create the Store on Tour (you can watch the video here). The Store on Tour will have a little bit of everything with something special in the mix just for the Florida State Seminole Fans! Dockers, DRY Soda, and Tortoise & Blonde will also be joining Urban Outfitters on Tour.

Be sure you follow @UOtour on Twitter for the most up-to-date information & come out next week to shop until you drop!

College Life: A Look Back

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the end for me at Florida State University. I cannot believe how fast these past three years have gone & knowing that I have only six more months left in Tallahassee makes me think about how much has changed within that short amount of time.

When I was a college freshman, I picked my major because it was something I was passionate about but I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. When I started, I was leaning towards becoming a buyer but within my first year toyed with the ideas of styling or working for a magazine. It wasn’t until after I launched FSU Fashion Girl & started interning that I realized that I wanted to get into more the the PR/marketing & social media side of fashion. I still believe that it is so important that college students pick a major that they are passionate about. There is not a doubt in my mind that I picked the right major for me.

Throughout the years, I have met so many different people that I have been lucky to call my friends. My advice to incoming freshman is to embrace these new friendships & try to meet as many people as you can. It is truly amazing what you can learn from those who are different from you. You can also learn a lot about yourself by looking at the people you may not get along with & really trying to figure out why. After college, stay in touch with everyone. A lot of my friends graduated last year & it has been really fun for me to see where they are all ending up – where they are living, working, etc. We are so blessed to live in the Facebook generation which makes it entirely too easy to keep in touch – utilize this.

My last piece of advice for incoming freshman is to embrace the new. College students are handed opportunities that a lot of others would kill to have. Experience everything you can. If someone invites you to something that isn’t necessarily “your thing,” do it anyways. You may surprise yourself. If you get the opportunity to intern in another state or country, do it! I cannot even begin to express how much that experience will teach you about yourself, both on a personal & professional level. Most importantly, have fun! These next four years will fly by faster than you know.

Events: CLUTCH Magazine Release Party Recap

Last week, I hosted CLUTCH Magazine’s spring 2011 release party. This release party was extra special because it was not only the release of our 10th issue but it was also my last release party serving as the PR Director for CLUTCH.

All in all, this experience has been amazing! I accomplished everything that I wanted to accomplish including starting the CLUTCH blog, offering an online edition of the magazine, and throwing the hugest release parties in CLUTCH history. I’ve been able to gain experience in event planning and social media all while working for the magazine I once saw on MTV back in 2007.

CLUTCH Team - love them!

I am so blessed that I was able to serve as the PR director for the past two semesters & am anxious for any future opportunities that might come my way next semester. To all of you who are interviewing for director positions this week, good luck! This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you won’t regret!

Spotlight On: ShoeDazzle

What’s my latest obsession? ShoeDazzle of course!

Just two months ago, I had no idea what ShoeDazzle was & now I am officially addicted! ShoeDazzle is a site that offers amazing shoes – all for only $39.95 + free shipping!

How it works: When you sign up, you will complete a style survey. This style survey will be used in order to assure that the shoes they recommend to you will suit your personal taste. Each month, ShoeDazzle will update your showroom with several different types of shoes, handbags & jewelry. Between the 1st and 5th of the month, choose your favorite item(s) that you want to purchase or skip out on the month. There is no obligation to buy each month & joining is 100% free. I joined just to check the site out & had no idea whether I would actually buy a pair of shoes. I ended up buying a pair my first month of joining & another pair the next month.

The first pair I purchased were the Estinas. I had been looking for a black bootie similar to it & was unable to find the perfect pair especially at the perfect price. I loved the style of the Estina & after reading up on their super easy return policy, I decided to give ShoeDazzle a try. The shoes arrived quickly, fit true to size & were extremely comfy – I was hooked! The next month I checked my showroom only to find the perfect pair of nude wedges which would be perfect for my summer internship in New York.

I love this site because it allows me to find the unusual styles I have been searching long & hard for at a reasonable price. You can also earn style points which can later be used to get a free pair of shoes – LOVE!

If you live in Tallahassee, make sure you come out to CLUTCH Magazine’s Spring 2011 Release Party next Tuesday, March 15th at the Filling Station. If you come right at 9pm & are one of the first 25 guests, you will be taking home a ShoeDazzle gift card. Otherwise, sign up here & you will receive 20% off your first order.
