DK Overseas Ambassador Program

Become a DK Travel Ambassador

Do you make YouTube videos in your spare time and edit them to perfection? Or write a blog that all of your friends––and your friends' friends––love to follow? Maybe you're a social media superstar with a killer feed? We're looking for creative and passionate students with any (or all!) of those skills, a willingness to learn, and an interest in marketing, publishing, and social media. 

DK Travel, publisher of the award-winning Eyewitness Travel Guides, Top Ten Guides, Family Guides, and a variety of other unique travel books, is looking for a group of stellar Spring 2020 Overseas Ambassadors.

During their time abroad, Ambassadors will create and share social media posts on their handles on behalf of DK Travel, brainstorm and execute marketing initiatives, and gain professional knowledge and skills in marketing and publishing. 


Please note that this is an unpaid opportunity.


Applicant requirements:

  • You must be a resident of the United States, between the ages of 18–25, and a current college student or recent college graduate in order to apply.


  • You must be enrolled in a study abroad program or participating in an overseas internship, fellowship, or job in one of the following countries/destinations:


Amsterdam, Berlin, Ireland, Italy, London, Paris, Prague, Rome, Vietnam, Cambodia/Laos, Portugal, Florence/Tuscany, Germany, Scotland, Cuba, Norway, Provence/Cote d’azur, Switzerland, Greek Islands, Bali, Israel, Vienna, Croatia, Morocco, Peru, Poland, Canada, France, Japan, Denmark and New Zealand, Costa Rica, South Africa, India, Spain or Thailand...


        ...during the period of January 2020–April 2020.


  • You must have public social media accounts and be prepared to post at least 8 times as an ambassador.


  • You must have your own smartphone and access to wifi, as DK will not provide technology to ambassadors.

  • Participate in a virtual training at the end of August.


  • Make social media posts on their public accounts at least twice a month.
