NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BankMobile, America's first and only absolutely no-fee, online and mobile bank, announced that its application submission window for the BankMobilist College Brand Ambassador Program will be coming to a close on Tuesday, August 11, 2015. One hundred sixteen college students from 92 universities across 28 states applied for the program to date.
Launched on July 14, 2015, the mobile banking company's initiative is looking to mobilize college students across the country as campus ambassadors to be a part of its #LiveFreeBankFree movement. BankMobile is seeking student ambassadors to spread the word about the mobile bank and its app by sharing it with peers through the use of social media, word of mouth and other creative marketing tools.
"We are thrilled with the interest in our college brand ambassador program and look forward to receiving the applications of other ambitious college students ready to become BankMobilists," stated Luvleen Sidhu, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer at BankMobile. "BankMobile is breaking the mold of traditional banking. We can't wait to start working with our ambassadors to help financially empower them and their friends, while raising awareness of our effortless, fee-free and fun bank!."
BankMobile believes a BankMobilist has certain fundamental characteristics. These include:
- Possessing passion to promote the BankMobile brand and its core mission of financial empowerment and fee-free banking
- Having an influential presence on social media and on campus
- Looking to gain invaluable real world marketing, sales and entrepreneurship experience
BankMobilist college ambassadors will be responsible for getting people on campus and beyond to use and love BankMobile. They will be offered incentives based on their accomplishments and progression through the program's tiers. The top BankMobilist at the end of the college ambassador program will be offered a guaranteed internship with BankMobile in the summer of 2016.
"Our unique ambassador program will have college students saying 'YAAAAS' rather than yawning! We're not a traditional bank and neither is our ambassador program," added Sidhu.
The application process is still open, but will be closing on August 11, 2015 at 11:59pm EDT. When submitting an application to be a BankMobilist college ambassador, students will need to answer a few short questions and have the opportunity to attach a resume/portfolio. Those selected to move on will be asked to attend a virtual interview on August 14, 17 or 18. Applicants chosen to be BankMobilist college ambassadors will be notified on August 20.
