My New Internship: Victoria Secret Pink

In the past I know I have been very apprehensive as far as sharing what school I attend, but that is going to be a little more difficult with my new internship! Therefore, without further ado, say hello to your 2012-2013 FAMU Victoria Secret PINK Rep! Yes, I am a PROUD Rattler!

This is my second internship and I'm so excited about it! I've wanted to have this position for a looong time! I applied my at the end of my sophomore year and my ego was severely crushed when I found out that I didn't get it--but when you want something, especially something you're passionate about, you stay determined. 

How did I get it?

Becoming a Victoria Secret Pink Campus Rep is VERY competitive! The brand speaks for itself! I didn't give up. I asked for immediate feedback from the internship coordinator to figure out what I needed to do to get the spot the following year. She mentioned that the young lady who got open position was involved in organizations that hadn't been reached out to yet. What better way to reach a new audience then start a new organization on campus? (Well..I kinda refurbished it...).

Caroline (internship coordinator) liked me enough in the interview process that she recommended me to the reps about joining their street team. I stayed on top of the reps last year like white on rice lol! I was a sponge! I got involved in as much as I could, helped them as much as I could. When Caroline came on campus for one of our events I made it my objective to ensure that she'd be able to connect my name with my face. The rest, as they say, is history. 

What do I do?

First and foremost, I have to say that I am so pleased to represent my university among 55 other schools that   have collegiate lines through PINK. As a #VSPINKRep it is our job to promote not only merchandise from Victoria Secret Pink, but specifically our individual school's collegiate line.

In doing so we are responsible for utilizing social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, Foursquare, etc.

I'm especially excited about the different events we'll get to host on campus! Tailgate parties, Bra bashes, Yoga, Zumba, OH MY!

Already I've been asked if the experience is overwhelming.When you look at the lengthy instructional book we were given at brand training YES! But now that I'm here, actually organizing and planning events, talking to people, really really getting into my work, I feel fine. Everything flows into place because a lot of the tasks that I have to perform I'm pretty use to or interested in learning more about!

Here is the latest video I've up loaded! Hope you enjoy!


  1. Hello,

    I go to an all girls University located in Washington D.C. When I heard about VSPinkrep 2013, I wanted to become a part of the pink nation movement. How do I get my resume to standout from the rest of the females that go to larger universities?

    Thank you

    1. Hello Nay-Nay,

      First, thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and comment! Being a Victoria Secret PINK campus rep is one of the most enriching experiences I've ever had! I'd wanted to do it since my freshman year! The first time I applied (my sophomore year) I didn't get the position. When I asked the recruiter what I needed to work on she said being more involved on campus because they wanted someone who could reach a variety of audiences. In addition to becoming a president of an organization on campus, I also became a part of the PINK Team. In doing so, I worked directly with the PINK Reps on campus. By the time the recruiter came to our campus for an event, I made sure she knew who I was! So I say all this to say, sometimes it's not always about what you know, but who you know. There will be hundreds of resumes sent to corporate; however, the PINK internship program is a relatively small department. It's all about networking! Get close to your PINK reps. Make yourself stand out to the as a reliable, hard worker. Let your actions and your dedication speak for you and the rest will follow through :)

    2. Hi! my name is Tamara Greene and I am a junior at Lincoln University PA, I really want to be a campus rep but my school is small so what can I do to get picked for this/next year?

  2. Hey, I just came across your blog after literally just applying to be a pink campus rep! Now I kind of wish I waited--long story short, I transfered to USF this fall as a junior and don't have any campus club/organization experience, only typical jobs, so now I'm sure I won't get selected haha. A few questions for you, if I applied again next year would that make me too old (do they only want freshmen-juniors)? Also going back to being involved, did they want just anything to show that you're people-oriented or more relative organizations and if so, which? I know I wrote a novel but I'd love to experience this! Congrats on being selected by the way too :)

  3. Hey I just submitted my application for the internship. I'm not sure if it's too late but I wish I knew about this sooner it sounds pretty amazing! How did you enjoy it and what did you have to do?
