Love Dove? Be Their Next Correspondent

What do you do when you are crabby, stressed out or are having an “ugly” week?  I go to my local drug store. Then I buy something that smells good in the beauty department to lift my spirits.

Apparently I’m not alone.  According to a recent study, 60% of women stated that fragrances have the power to lift their spirits or change their mood! Can you relate?  If so, you may be interested in becoming a Dove Correspondent. 

Thanks to reader, Diane, I found out about a really cool opportunity for women ages 18-25.  Dove recently launched a new scent in their go fresh line called Revive, a pomegranate and lemon verbena scent that is very summery. As part of the launch, Dove is giving three young women the opportunity to share their fresh perspective through their Dove Deodorant Correspondent program. Three young women will be chosen as a correspondent to either Seventeen, Marie Claire or Cosmopolitan magazine. They will: 

  • Write for a high-profile blog to provide a fresh perspective to peers on topics ranging from beauty trends to career and relationship advice
  • Take a week long trip to New York City to meet with national bloggers and gain essential on-the-job experience at the Hearst magazines office.
  • Take a whole day in New York for a professional photo shoot for a Dove “go fresh” body mist and matching deodorant advertisement that will appear in Cosmo, Marie Claire or Seventeen!
  • Receive valuable writing coaching and reporting experience from mentors at their publication.

It’s a cool program to get young women valuable real-life experience and network which, as you know by now, is an absolute must have for young professionals looking to land a job or enhance their careers.

If interested in becoming a Dove correspondent, apply at (entry deadline is May 5, 2010).  Correspondents can have full time jobs already and need to be able to go to New York for a week-long experience. Blog sites will run from June 15 – October 15, 2010.
