Amazing Job Opportunity: Join The BLDG 25 Blog Team!

Are you an explorer, dreamer, and creative expresser? Are you passionate about writing, photography, fashion, and the Free People brand?  Do you have a voracious appetite for what’s unique and interesting, and want to share it in creative and engaging ways? We are looking for an experienced blogger to join the BLDG 25 Blog Team – this is an amazing opportunity and we’re looking for someone equally amazing to fill the role.

Could this be you…?

9 am: The sun is shining. It’s a beautiful day in Philly! You dance your way into the office, have a seat at your desk, and check the blog to make sure today’s posts all look how they should. You open a report on yesterday’s blog traffic to see how your posts did – you always want to be on top of what content the readers are responding to, and it helps inform you of what types of posts to do more or less of. You tweet a link to one of today’s posts and are stoked to see one of your favorite sites re-tweet it. Maybe they’d be interested in sharing a guest post from you sometime soon!

9:30 am: You grab a work buddy and head over to the Jharoka café for breakfast. The cutie taking your breakfast order finally remembered your name – yes! You pick up a couple of magazines at the cafe while you’re there – they’re always great for inspiration!


9:45 am: You make your way back to your desk and take some time to surf around the web.  You love seeing what other bloggers and sites are doing, and coming up with exciting new ways to share content on the BLDG 25 Blog. You can’t go a day without Pinterest, and browse through your feed a couple of times a day for more inspiration (and re-pin some beautiful images to the Free People Pinterest page while you’re at it!).


10:30 am: You found a bunch of images that are really getting your creativity going. Print them out and pin them on the inspiration wall behind your desk. That’s real-life Pinterest! :)


11 am: Time to post a photo on the Free People Instagram account! You grab some new accessories and head outside by your favorite white wooden wall. Actually, this would be a great place to shoot a photo for Friday’s blog post, too. Grab your prop and one of the other bloggers – you’ll need her help for this one.



12 pm: Time to start working on a beauty DIY for Thursday. You find a well-lit spot in the building and get to work! Should you use the 50mm lens or the wide angle? Might as well take both.


1 pm: You make a quick run to the cafeteria for a delicious salad and eat while you review your photos and make selects. You take pride in your photography and the photos that get used on the blog need to be of the best quality and as visually appealing as they can be.  You’re always looking for ways to make your images even more creative, and this time you decide to overlay some words in your handwriting. You head over to the scanner, and then edit that baby in Photoshop! After your images are edited, you write your post, put everything together, and set it to be posted on its scheduled date.


3 pm: It’s snack time! Today’s special is 50-cent lattes. Grab your nearest bud and get there before the line gets too crazy. While waiting you make plans to check out a flea market that’s taking place this weekend – you’d love to take some photos there for the blog!


3:15 pm: You check the blog admin for comments on your posts. It’s always awesome to see comments from regular readers (we love you!). Oftentimes readers have questions about certain items or ideas in your posts. Make sure you answer them all – you don’t want to leave anyone hanging!

4:00 pm: Our copywriter’s outfit catches your eye as she walks down the hall. You stop her and grab a photo for this week’s “office style” post! You take a quick walk around the building to see who else has an outfit that’s on point today.


5 pm: You log into your FP Me account and upload a shot of yourself in your new FP harem pants. You browse the style pics gallery, and heart and share your favorite shots.

5:15 pm: You want to get a head start on one of your posts for next week. You’re going to Pitchfork music festival and could not be more excited! Make your way up to the web studio and pick out some outfits for your “What To Pack” post.  While there you spot model Sheila Marquez leaving the studio looking amazing – you snap a quick photo of her off duty style for the blog and instagram!


6 pm: The day is coming to an end. You check over your posts that are scheduled for tomorrow to make sure everything is in place, and take one last glance at the comments to make sure no other questions or concerns have popped up.  Then you’re off to meet some friends at your favorite neighborhood restaurant! :)

Sounds like such an AMAZING job opportunity, working for FP would be a dream come true! But I’m still in school and I’m all the way in Cali :/

Dani -July 10, 2013, 1:08PM

Yo people… you need to call me ….so I can move back to Philly…. NYC is killing my vibes.

Aimee -July 10, 2013, 1:09PM

This makes me wish I lived in Philly so badly! So sad.

Justine -July 10, 2013, 1:15PM

Okay, I am moving to Philly ;)

Megan B. -July 10, 2013, 1:23PM

Omg!!! I want this job so bad!! Why do I have to live in Kansas??!? Ugh. I’ll be finishing my bachelors degree on Monday and I just started a blog about a year ago. I’m so sad :( I’m willing to relocate, but can’t at this moment. Hopefully this opportunity pops up again in a year :). Fingers crossed. Lol

Louise -July 10, 2013, 1:24PM

I’m in no position to apply for this job (18 and living in the UK) but oh my god do you know how to give me so much more inspiration for my blog. I WANT MY DAY AT WORK TO BE LIKE THAT! I just want to say thank you for clearly making so many bloggers dreams come true – because blogging is such a huge passion!

Juliette Laura -July 10, 2013, 1:38PM

Oh. My. GOD. This is my absolute DREAM job, unfortunately for this I’m going into my sophomore year of schooling in Boston. But I already have the FP job opportunities page bookmarked on my laptop, so I’ll definitely be applying for an internship next summer or the one after that!

Juliette Laura

Lindsey -July 10, 2013, 3:02PM

A day in the life of my dream job…if only it were available three years from now when I will hopefully have my BFA and be searching for this EXACT job! The job description is the cutest thing I have ever seen, why can’t every job be like this? I mean seriously, how could you not be happy working for Free People…the pics on this job description make me smile just looking at them! Whoever is chosen to fill this spot is THE luckiest person in the world, and congrats to you!!

Julie -July 10, 2013, 4:59PM

It’s my dream to work for Free People! Hopefully one day, when I’m done with school :)

Pia -July 10, 2013, 5:32PM

I am constantly reading your blog. I feel like I know all of the current bloggers already! It’s funny to see everyone say this is a DREAM job. I don’t know about all of that, but it is an amazing job – with an amazing brand.

Sarah K -July 10, 2013, 5:37PM

This sounds like the perfect day and the best job! I would love love love to work for such a creative and inspiring company.

Megan -July 10, 2013, 5:55PM

you should make a satellite office in boston 0:)

Hannah -July 10, 2013, 6:33PM

To work at Free People is my dream job! Seriously, I would love to join the free people team. It’s almost sad that I love where I live. Florida is a bit to far from Philly. Either way, I love the Free People blog and maybe one day if I get sick of this old little beach town I’ll go live my dream as a Free People team member! :)

Liz -July 10, 2013, 6:35PM

If I was qualified and not planning on have a baby in the next two years, I would hop on this. Good luck to the fun girl who gets the job.

Kacie -July 10, 2013, 8:44PM

Oh my god that’s my dream job! If only I was done with college!!

Rachel -July 10, 2013, 9:07PM

Hi guys, is there any possibility of this being an online position? I am in Western Australia and this is perfectly suited to me :)

Love & Light

Alex Deanne -July 10, 2013, 9:51PM

Hey FP ladies! Is it possible to work this job remotely? I’m looking for something to do during the weeks as my current job in Chicago is just weekends and I have literally been dreaming of working for Free People since I began my career in journalism. Would love the opportunity to join the blogging team :)

Dee Stecco -July 10, 2013, 9:54PM

Hi! I just applied! I hope I hear back sometime soon. I feel I have a lot to contribute. Looking forward to hearing from your team.

Beth -July 10, 2013, 10:28PM

My dream job! It sounds absolutely amazing. Makes me really sad that there’s no Free People in Australia! :(

Alex -July 10, 2013, 10:48PM

My dream job! Which I will have one day! I already living in Philly, so I am one step closer to living life the way I have always imagined :)

Alex -July 10, 2013, 10:49PM

I’m** !

Alexis -July 10, 2013, 11:20PM

This job sounds like a dream! Fashion and blogging and photography! What could be better?? I am definitely looking forward to great opportunities like this when I graduate.

Sarah -July 10, 2013, 11:30PM

It has been my dream for a very long time now to work with free people, and as of more recently, to blog with you. I started my own lifestyle/diy blog this year and it has been an awesome experience, and I have been so inspired by the free people blog from the start! I only hope that when I graduate from college there will be an opportunity like this for me. Please check out my blog if you can! (

lillian -July 11, 2013, 12:22AM

Sounds like a perfect gig. Is there a way this job can be done long distance? I live in Atl, and don’t really see myself moving to Philly in the next few years. I love to check out this blog, so many nifty posts. DIY, fashion, and writing are all my very passionable hobbies. Actually, its not just a hobby, it is (as cliche, as it might sound) my lifestyle. Please let me know if the long distance thing can be worked around. Thank you.

Riio -July 11, 2013, 2:04AM

That sounds such a nice job!! I came to America from Japan three months ago, and I fell in love at first sight with Free People♡ I wish I could get the job, but I have to graduate college first…:'( I’m excited about reading the posts that are written by a new blogger, though!

Sophie Milan -July 11, 2013, 6:12AM

I am not the least hopeful to fill this job. I’m on the other side of the world. Though, I really enjoy reading your job vacancy posts. You seem to make the work load much lighter than it really is. Hope you get the best one for this! And I can’t wait for more job related posts here! Hahahaha

Freya -July 11, 2013, 6:32AM

Still waiting for you guys to move across the pond to London! I will be first in line for any social/blogging jobs – FP is one of the only companies that could pull me away from the charity sector.

Anonymous -July 11, 2013, 7:06AM

sounds amazing but can this job be done from anywhere in the world?

Hannah -July 11, 2013, 8:41AM

Applied for this job the MINUTE I saw it! I love blogging, writing, pinning, and FASHION! This is an amazing opportunity and THANK YOU for your consideration!

Katie Hennessey -July 11, 2013, 9:01AM

So excited! Going to apply right now! I’m graduating this September and Free People is on my “dream job” list!

Jennifer -July 11, 2013, 10:13AM

If only I lived in Phily!

xo Jennifer

Kelly Jenney -July 11, 2013, 10:39AM

This sounds like the ideal job, too bad it’s in Philly. If there’s ever an opening for a similar position in D.C. …. Now I’ve got to go check out these FP Harem pants you spoke of.

rachelle muschamp -July 11, 2013, 11:35AM

This sounds really like my dream job, but I live in Malta… If you ever need coverage of life here, I work with tv and style people on this little isle…

Jennifer -July 11, 2013, 11:37AM

Would there every be any opportunity for freelance telecommute contributors? There are many talented writers, (including myself, naturally) who would benefit the blog and add a more personal, diverse angle to posts. I am personally constantly inspired by things around me with a focus on the Free People aesthetic and would love the opportunity to contribute what I see as it reflects perfectly on the brand.

Lindsay -July 11, 2013, 11:44AM

Not in the market for a full time blogger job, but I do manage bands in the music industry and am a big fan of free people. Was curious if you guys are open to having a guest music blogger / photographer? I’m constantly traveling and backstage at festivals. I love the whole free people lifestyle brand (and dress in it everyday) and would love to contribute to your blog!

Maria -July 11, 2013, 11:46AM

Just applied! Sounds like my day already—minus showing up at the Free People office. But would LOVE to add that bit to my routine.


kelsey -July 11, 2013, 11:52AM

i dont have any experience ive never had a job before but i would be amazing at that job and i love freepeople. i tried to apply but i don’t think it worked :/ anyways i would love love that job id even work for free :)

Kimberly -July 11, 2013, 12:09PM

whoa!!! BEST job in the ENTIRE world!

May -July 11, 2013, 1:29PM

Argh that sounds like a great opportunity!
I would love to apply, but I’m over here in Cali and I’m an incoming junior in high school.

Sad face. Good luck to all who apply though! <3

Susy -July 11, 2013, 1:32PM

I have two questions… Brigitte, does this mean you will be leaving? Because I love your posts and i would really miss reading tour stuff :(.
And my second question… If someone had outstanding artistic and creative talent and was everything you were looking for, BUT did not have a college degree, would you guys still consider hiring her? It is my dream to work for free people and am working on building my portfolio, but unfortunately I am a young single mother and college is not an option for me right now :/.

Georgia -July 11, 2013, 1:47PM

Hey… not applying because I can’t… (senior in high school) but wanted to know if you could check out my blog!

Talks about healthy foods, diy beauty products, etc.

cassidy -July 11, 2013, 3:05PM

Gosh, this is everyones dream job!! But this really is a DREAM job. Doing this everyday would just be magical. I just need to finish college or at least get one-two more years under my belt. (sophomore) Hopefully this will still be an option down the road. There is nothing i am more passionate about than free people. Peace and love to you guys. You all seem like such amazing human beings. xoxo


kelsey -July 11, 2013, 3:47PM

i have the same question as susy’s second question. im in the same situation.

April -July 11, 2013, 5:33PM

Applied!! This would be such a dream for me! I love fashion and exploring new fashion ideas. Free People is an artistic expression. The intricate details are evident as well.

Erin -July 11, 2013, 10:41PM

I’ll do it! Sign me up!!:)

Paloma Deinum-Buck -July 11, 2013, 10:41PM

Ugh I wish I could apply for this (only a sophomore in high school) but I was wondering if you could still check out my blog! I’m a huge fan of your blog and the Free People brand and I really wish I was living in Philly and out of high school!
xoxo, Paloma
*mainly fashion*

Mary Hannah Anderson -July 11, 2013, 11:59PM

Have a nice weekend,

Emmylee -July 12, 2013, 7:32PM

Anonymous -July 13, 2013, 4:24PM

This is my dream job! I wish I could apply and work for Free People but I’m too young :( Hopefully something will pop up in a few years!

Chelsea -July 13, 2013, 8:13PM

Applied. Fingers crossed <3

Britt -July 16, 2013, 12:52PM

Things to do: Find a way to go back to college and finish getting me AA. Move to Philly.

Jobs Search Philippines -July 19, 2013, 5:59AM

It has been my dream to work like this. Just enjoying life and exploring place like this and to take pictures into it. Nice blog. :)
You may try to visit this site, if you’re seeking for jobs Hope this can help you.

Taylor -July 21, 2013, 5:16PM

I’m looking to go back to college, what would be a useful for me to know beforehand if I’m looking to get a job like this in the future?

Stella -July 24, 2013, 4:35PM

This would be so much fun!! Sadly I am only 15 :)

Annika -August 19, 2013, 8:34PM

I was just wondering if this position has been filled and also if it’s only available to American residents?


Meghan -August 23, 2013, 2:36AM

Really hoping to work for FP in the coming years – what a dream it would be! Only a year left until I receive my bachelors…

Counting down the days. :)


Carol Currie -November 16, 2013, 2:29AM

I am completing a degree in English with a concentration in Technical Writing and New Media- graduating in December, 2013. I am currently working as an intern at Creative Loafing magazine as a music columnist. I research information on upcoming shows and provide write-ups for the paper, which have been published. I am very interested in this position.

Haylie -February 18, 2014, 9:11PM

I’m in love with your blog! What an amazing opportunity, when I’m out of high school, this would be my dream job. I just started blogging this year so I’m quite the newbie, but so far I’m loving everything about it. Your blog is so inspiring, keep up the great work girls :) (and guys?) love, love, love all of your posts. <3 hope you're having a wonderful day, if it's like the day outline here I'm sure it's been fantastic :) xo

Amalia -July 17, 2014, 12:12AM

Can you guys please do this again….soon??? I’m dying to do this! (was that desperate sounding? Oh well. I love me some free people!)

Alexa -August 9, 2014, 7:53PM

Praying for you guys to offer this opportunity again one day. I’m from England and I’m going to University in September, I really hope Free People get more involved with the UK as I really think it’d do well (rest assured I would visit the store daily). I take photos, make fashion/lifestyle videos, create props and blog so if there is EVER anything this gal could do for you then please oh please let me know because I’d be more than willing to do it. I’m a FreePeople girl through and through, a creative, an adventurer, an explorer, a life lover and fun seeker so would really love to get involved with the brand.

Here’s my blog if you’d like to check it out :)

Evi -May 18, 2016, 6:06AM

I love the way you use the visuals. The vintage air of the clothing is something I really love. I totally can relate to your fashion. As a PHP Senior Backend Engineer (yes, I’m a geek) I often feel like it’s hard for me to express myself in fashion. But I just need to combine vintage with casual. Thank you for the inspiration
