My name is Haley Allen I’ve been asked with Campus Ink for 5 years. I joined the Student Design and Sales Program back in 2017, when I was a freshman in college. I was unsure at the time what Campus Ink was too, but now looking back, it is the best decision I could have made for my future self.
The Student Design and Sales Program opened up so many options for me including switching my major to graphic design after I started learning Adobe Illustrator. But design is not the only thing that you will learn here at Campus Ink. I’ve learned how to become a leader, developed my communication skills, how to sell, how to design, and have built a great community among 200+ other students. And I sold around $200K in merch while I was in college!
Being a successful student designer can look like becoming the best designer you have been in your entire life or becoming the best salesperson you’ve been in your entire life. The positions don’t stop there we host internships every summer where we house around 10 students from the program in Chicago. They come learn the ins-and-outs of business in our Chicago office.
Broc Anthony who was a student designer at the University of Illinois is also still with Campus Ink to this day and is a manager for many students across the country.
The passion that all of us at Campus Ink have for teaching students sales and design as well as just how to become a decent human being is unmatchable. We strive to teach students real-life experiences, put them in leadership positions, and bring out their most passionate creative sides.
How Do You Get Started Becoming a Student Design and Sales Manager?
The first step to becoming a student design and sales manager is applying! We are looking for students who are motivated, creative, eager to learn and ready to start selling.
To get the most out of this program we suggest that you are a freshman, sophomore or incoming Junior. Our program is designed to teach students over 2-4 years worth of design and sales.
The first eight weeks will be your onboarding and training process. The onboarding and training process is an online program that you will take at your own pace. It is designed to be 8 weeks long. Some students have finished it in less than a week and some students have taken up to the eight weeks to finish it. It is on your time! During this training you will learn the ins-and-outs of Campus Ink.
The second half of training is all about design. The first step of the design training is how to download Adobe Illustrator on your computer. Now some of you may already be interested in design and that’s why you’re applying for this position, that’s great! And some of you may know nothing about design but are super curious about how you can get started. Throughout the 4 weeks of the design portion of training you will learn the ins-and-outs of the design process.
