Any form of the word "intern" just might be the number one most used word in my vocabulary from the months of January- September. From networking to emailing to applying to resume-building- I'll stop. The point is, I stress more over finding a good internship (or two!) throughout the end of winter and beginning of spring than I do over my pesty finance exams. Good luck getting anywhere even close to the fashion industry without a few solid internships (or contacts. Let's be honest- a couple of names dropped here and there can get us farther than they should.).
So, what do you do when you finally land the internship you've been slaving away for all semester? Prep time begins in full force. I know you don't need help shopping for the perfect first-day ensemble, but knowing the in's and out's of not only your company but any other designers, PR firms, event locations and important people is pretty key. The newest intern-ready website, InternChic.com, is a thorough survival guide for anyone wedging their way into the mean and cut-throat world holding our passions. Check it out as the 1st of June edges closer and closer to get an edge over your fellow bitches- I mean interns. Follow InternChic on Twitter, too, for quick tips and fashion news pertinent to you!
