Hours of chatting and mingling during recruitment can be exhausting. Get pumped up with this playlist of all-female Top 40 Hits, plus some throwback jams.

“***Flawless” – Beyoncé (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)
No pump-up playlist is complete without Queen B. Jam to this glamorous beat between adding the final touches to your style, and with Bey on your side, you’ll have the perfect look – whether you “woke up like this” or not.

“Shake It Off” – Taylor Swift
Tune in to this track when your nerves start to kick in to calm the jitters. When in doubt, take T-Swift’s advice – “It’s gonna be all right.”

“Problem” – Ariana Grande (feat. Iggy Azalea)
Add pop star Ariana Grande’s sugary-sweet vocals to Iggy Azalea’s edgy, bad-girl rhymes and voila: the perfect girl anthem. Turn up this track when your energy starts to drop for a quick fix. Lip-synching is optional.

“C’Mon” – Kesha
Once you’ve made it through the day, it’s time to celebrate with that last bit of energy you have left. And what better way have fun than with the queen of all things party-related, Kesha? Dance off the recruitment anxiety with this banger track – you deserve it.

Give your energy a boost before the next rush event with this track, sure to inspire head-bobbing and fist-bumps.

Blast this country anthem on the patio at your next barbecue for an impromptu sing-along.
