About The Economist:

The Economist is one of the most widely recognized and well-read current affairs publications, with a growing global circulation of around 1.5m readers and a reputation for incisive analysis and opinion on every aspect of world events.

The Opportunity:

As an Economist Ambassador, you will be tasked with marketing the brand and educating your peers about the unique global perspective The Economist offers to its readers. By utilizing your personal network and executing targeted outreach to various groups at your university, you will be the primary source of The Economist content within the student body.

Your primary goal will be to utilize sales and marketing tactics to generate AT LEAST 15 sales of the discounted $12 - 12 week subscription. You have 10 weeks (9/9 - 11/17) to complete this.


  • Generate AT LEAST 15 subscription sales using your unique tracking link.

  • Host classroom and organization presentations to drive subscriptions to The Economist.

  • Maintain a weekly goal for subscription sales and come up with creative approaches for doing so.

  • Communicate in a timely manner with the Evolvez team during the duration of the program.

Even though Ambassadors have to complete these outlined deliverables, the way you go about accomplishing your work is up to you. We encourage Ambassadors to hold their work to a high standard.


  • $10 per subscription sale + $50 bonus for every 5 sales. On average, Ambassadors can expect to earn $300.

  • There is no cap to the number of sales you can drive in the 10 week period - several Ambassadors in the past have been able to sell 50 subscriptions during a semester (which equates to $1,000 earned!)

  • Highest-performing Ambassadors will be given a personal reference for internships.

  • Opportunity to work closely with executives within the company.

  • Valuable experience in marketing, sales, and communications.


  • Interest in marketing, politics, economics, and sales

  • Prior knowledge of The Economist is not required but is strongly favored

  • Greek Life members are preferred, but not required

  • Preferred club memberships/classes (not required): finance, economics, poly sci, business

  • Well-connected on campus
