Rent the Runway On Campus Opportunities


Rent the Runway has blown up on campuses throughout the nation with its innovative concept that allows girls the opportunity to wear fabulous, designer, expensive dresses for a fraction of the cost by renting them. They also have jewelry and accessories to complete the look as well! Rent the Runway has become a hit at UVA, as tons of girls have looked to the site for dresses for events anywhere from Foxfield to Parent’s Formal. Although many of you reading this are already familiar with the site- you can now become even more engaged by gaining an internship with RTR as a brand ambassador for your campus!
 
Rent the Runway is offering exciting opportunities for the fashion lover- wishing to gain experience in entrepreneurial, leadership, business management and marketing. Working with RTR will allow you to get a hands-on experience while learning practical skills in a fun way- through fashion! RTR only requires a one-year commitment to the team and an individual commitment of 10-15 hours/ week, so it is the perfect opportunity to be able to focus on schoolwork while still doing something fun and more importantly gaining practical experience in the real world. Not to mention- access to summer internships at RTR and and discounts!
 
Our very own, HerCampus writer, Mimi Montgomery works as the Co-Greek liaison this year and has had an amazing experience- she said that working with the company can lead to summer internships and jobs after college as well.
