As the summer quickly approaches, we are looking to recruit thirty (30) dedicated students living in the Chicagoland area that want to gain valuable hands-on experience, improve their resume, and help us PAINT CHICAGO ORANGE by spreading the Illini brand image.
The events located in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs start in the month of May after school is let out and continue till school is back in session. The job is unpaid, but the hours are voluntary (you work when you can work) and more importantly the experience is extraordinary. Many of our street team ambassadors met many great contacts and wrote wonderful testimonies about their experience like the one below:
“Being a part of the University of Illinois Street Team is an exhilarating, fun and a great learning experience for anyone who wants hands on marketing & communications experience. As a brand ambassador I was able share my passion for U of I and to network with alumni and Illini fans during fun events such as concerts, beach events and many others.”
Class of 2016
Now is this time to become an ambassador for your school help spread the Illini passion to the millions of people living in the Chicagoland area. You will be integral in this effort!
All summer long, as fun, energetic, and passionate brand ambassadors, you will help with the following:
- Attend/staff Live Nation concerts at First Merit Bank Pavilion the lakefront in downtown Chicago in the Illini Tent. Schedule still being finalized but here is the venue site http://www.firstmeritbankpavilion.net/
- Street teams to help comb Chicago beaches and City/Suburban streets singing (not literally) the praises of your school
- Running the booths and working the crowd at Players Sports Group events such as The Big Dig volleyball tourney at North Avenue Beach https://www.playerssports.net/
- Other fun events such as Naperville Rib Fest at which we’ll have mobile marketing presence.
Again, as a reminder all of these events will be taking place in the Chicago area all throughout the summer of 2015. Participation time will vary, but will likely not extend beyond a few hours for each event.
As a reminder this is a non-paid volunteer position, but your dedication to the job is critical as you will be the front line in representing your Alma Mater. People will want to hear your stories and share their stories about the greatest school in the universe.
If you like what you hear, please contact Matt Wszolek at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is extremely limited and will be filled on a first-come, first serve basis.
Hail to the Orange.
