Getting Ready for School and Life
All college campuses have career offices, but realistically;
How many times have you ever been to them ?
Three young women who decided to take career development along with women 's empowerment head on and created organizations that give college women a head start in their lives.
That's right the Intern Queen is a national organization that assists in finding any college student an internship.
These internships can range from coding at a start up, banking, fashion, and traditional marketing at a variety if companies and non- profits.
When I attended the Intern Queen Party in NYC what I really appreciate was the willingness of the interns giving tips to each other on how to get ahead. We also observed many of the Intern Queens staff were former office staff members, who came to assist at the event. Some former staff members work for prestigious PR companies, others were working at non profits, etc.
Intern Queen is not looking to replace any college career advisor, but they are fostering an environment where the facilitation of information and resources are presented in a colegial way.
This organization is exactly what the title suggests, with Fashion Blogging an actual course at Harvard, and retail math being taught at the leading business schools. College Fashionista is grooming the next generation of fashion PR gurus, stylists, designers and fashion executives.
I have attended one in the Spring with a designer Steve Madden, the Summer was Beauty Editor Kirstie Dash from Allure Magazine, and most recently TV personality from MTV Style. These events are normally standing room only and the panelists give tips that will not only get you a job but a career.
Her Campus was founded in Cambridge and has spread throughout the nation, they address not only career but, body positive focus with the regional fashion shows that people have to apply with essays to be a part of the show. They also have an annual conference in July where anyone can register and be a part that focuses on marketing, public relations, politics, etc. This all day conference gives you so much information that you will need a notebook.
So school is in session and so is the information!
Cheers to Intern Queen, College Fashionista, and Her Campus!
