Every semester, tons of our Intern Queen Campus Ambassadors take advantage of the amazing opportunity to study abroad. This Spring, we wanted to share their stories with you! The fifth blog in our #InternQueenAbroad series is from Allanah Dykes, Fairfield University.

Who doesn’t love a good inspirational quote every so-often? I worked with my team to go through some of my favorite quotes of all time – many of them are from my “Inspirational Quotes” Pinterest board. I hope some of these quotes inspire you as they continue to inspire me every day!
Here’s the deal. An employer can put you at the top of their list for an internship or job. They might think the world of you. If they see an image of you where you are dressed inappropriately because you’re in a swimsuit or wearing a super short skirt (about to go out) they can easily change their mind. Once they hire you, you are an extension of their brand, their company, and their decision-making ability. Anyone reading this is clearly ambitious. Make sure you don’t blow it by posting inappropriate material during spring break.
One day while I was interning I received pictures from a photo shoot I had done in January. Some of the pictures that were taken are to be used for my college graduation announcements. I realized I didn’t know what company to use to order my graduation announcements from, so I decided to ask the Intern Queen Team if they had any recommendations.

Check out six of the most interesting internships around. You never know when you will discover a career that is calling to you!
I was recently interviewed by Randi Zuckerberg. She asked me a ton of career and internship advice questions (typical). The interview went really well and I answered every question without much hesitation. The final question she asked me was, “What is your favorite app? What is the app you can’t live without?” I was silent. I hardly use apps besides Instagram and Google Maps. I really didn’t know what my favorite app was.
Lauren Berger created Intern Queen Inc. in 2009, after successfully completing 15 internships and college and recognizing a need for more internship resources. Her online platform, www.internqueen.com, serves as the home of the business and allows students access to apply for any internship they want free of charge. The site also features daily content on how to make the most of high school, college, and post-grad experiences.
