You are here


It's summertime in the office and that means our new interns are here! I remember my days as an intern, but after countless novels and TV shows about life working at a magazine, I can only imagine how this new crop of girls must be feeling (possibly intimidated?). However, for me, interns are a good reminder to work hard and be on top of my game at all times. They are so eager to learn the magazine business and help out with the smallest tasks--these are things I, too, should always be doing. Just because I've got my feet in the door doesn't mean my journey to make it has reached its potential: there's lots that I can learn from my bosses every day still and definitely little things I can be doing to remind them that I'm always here to help. Another pointer I've picked up from our newest interns--look presentable at all times. They may only be in the office 2-3 days a week but I swear these young girls are dressed so cute in their skirts, summer dresses, and heels every time! It reminds me that even though I'm here every day and my coworkers are some of my best friends, coming to work dressed to impress, will surely boost my confidence and help me feel prepared to succeed in any situation I'm put in. Needless to say, I'm thankful to have interns for many reasons. They become part of our team at Shape and since we're a small staff they get to be involved in some really cool projects too.
