Her Campus – A great way to build resume & your personal brand!
Do you dream of writing for a magazine like Glamour some day? Obsessed with fashion blogs? Want to work in fashion, entertainment, or media? Well, if you asked yes to any of those then you should consider getting involved with Her Campus.
So what exactly is Her Campus?
Her Campus is an online magazine aimed at female college students. The website is divided into six sections: style, beauty, health, love, life, career, and high school. Any questions you need answered, you will find them throughout this wonderful website. But wait it gets better, they added the feature of “My Campus”, where colleges across the nation have the opportunity to have a HC chapter on their campus. And, lucky for us, this is what Danielle Tullo and Amanda McKelvey did!
Amanda and Danielle at the HC Fairfield Launch Party
The two juniors got approval to launch Her Campus Fairfield, allowing them and their writers to post articles aimed towards the Fairfield women! Since the launch, there have been numerous amazing articles on the Fairfield page including why you should study abroad, cute Olympic athletes, a party playlist, and many more.
To boil it down, if you want to do something that has to do with creating content around fashion, pop culture, entertainment – so do a lot of other people. Writing for Her Campus at Fairfield will give you the opportunity to actually get some experience writing about those topics. This is a very powerful way for you to build your brand & resume. Just imagine that you are in an interview with some folks at E! for a VERY competative summer Internship. Like they do for all of their applicants, they do a very quick google search before you come in. To their surprise, they find some concrete examples of your WORK and notice that you consistently write about pop culture – BOOM, they’re impressed.
