The following is a post written by our Community Management intern about our upcoming Campus Ambassador program.
Hey there—I’m Michael, the Community Management intern at GroupMe this summer!
Since I’ve been here, we’ve seen some remarkable cases of GroupMe in places that were never imagined. Examples like cancer support groups, neighborhood crime watches, and even tornado relief cases continue to motivate the team daily to keep building GroupMe to be the best it can.
Aside from the often awe-inspiring cases, there’s one place that GroupMe just seems to naturally fit in—the college campus.
Over the past year, I’ve had the chance to use GroupMe at school in many different ways:
- Coordinating a team of 20 program directors during an 18-hour dance marathon that raised funds for a local children’s hospital.
- Organizing group projects for class and finding those group members when meeting up in the library.
- Staying in touch with roommates about buying groceries when someone makes a run to the store.
- Communicating with members of the student clubs and organizations that I’m in for quick changes to meeting times and places.
Those are just a few examples of use cases, and we know there are many more out there. That’s why we’re starting a Campus Ambassador program to help bring GroupMe on campus to the next level.
Those selected as Campus Ambassadors will be our representatives on the front line of their campus. They’ll be publicizing GroupMe and helping new users and groups get started in a number of different areas. We’re ready to support those Ambassadors as much as possible - we’ll set up custom web pages, help plan promotions, and provide giveaways. We’ll even throw in lots of exclusive GroupMe swag! #)
We’ll tell you more about the details later. For now, we’re looking for motivated, creative, and passionate college students who understand the power of GroupMe to join us.
What’s more, the Ambassadors that do the best job on their campuses will be offered a paid internship at GroupMe HQ next summer—which, take my word for it, is amazing. Team GroupMe is constantly evolving, and the amount of creativity, skill, humor, and genius here is great.
If you fit the bill, or if you know someone who does, apply now. We can’t wait to meet you. The deadline for applications is July 31st!
