FindSpark Campus Ambassadors, powered by Wix.com
A strong network is powerful and can open doors.
Looking for experience in event planning, marketing, social media, and as a student leader?
Join our community and boost your career while having fun with the most ambitious young pros on the planet.
We’re seeking talented, driven individuals who want to be more actively involved with our community — changing people’s careers for the better and working to ensure that there is a positive role model, mentor, and friend for every young pro in New York City, Chicago and beyond.
This is not your typical campus ambassador program. You won’t push products; you’ll bring fun, relevant resources that actually work to your peers. You won’t represent a brand; you’ll represent a community, and learn and grow professionally at the same time.
With our support, benefits, and network, FindSpark Campus Ambassadors have gone on to land jobs and internships at companies like Viacom, Time Inc., IBM, L’Oreal, MRY, and Birchbox.

With the guidance of our team, FindSpark Campus Ambassadors will devise a plan to share the mission and spirit of FindSpark with their student body.
As a campus ambassador, you will:
- Develop your marketing skills by strategizing a proposal for bringing FindSpark to your campus.
- Improve your writing skills by sharing your personal tips and experiences on our blog.
- Expand your online presence by posting FindSpark resources to your personal social media profiles and building or improving your personal website.
- Produce a FindSpark program activation by organizing a FindSpark event on your campus or integrating FindSpark into an event you’re planning with your club with support from our team. Past Campus Ambassadors have brought our CEO to their clubs or classes to lead a workshop, hosted their own FindSpark themed workshop, or invited their club or peers to screen a virtual FindSpark workshop on campus.
- Get event planning and production experience by volunteering at our events (if located in NYC).
- Give your peers a career boost by tabling on campus or sharing resources at a school club meeting.
- Recognize your accomplishments by building a wrap report to showcase your efforts at the end of the semester.
