It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But with exams, final projects, presentations, internship-wrap ups, and more -- it’s the most stressful time, too. We’re all guilty of experiencing what I call “monkey mode”: those moments when your mind is elsewhere and you’re just staring at your laptop screen or books. Read my tips on how to recover and get the job done HERE.
The time for papers, exams and presentations is here. Cramming, all nighters and an endless supply of coffee (with extra sugar, please!) become a ritual for some as the last few weeks of school approach us.
As I write this blog post, I’m on an airplane staring out the window of grey clouds and blue skies and thinking about how fast this year has gone. I can’t believe we’ll be celebrating the holidays in just a few short weeks and that Thanksgiving is already here!
Every day, aspiring young professionals (like you!) come to Intern Queen Inc. to read important career advice, to see what lessons our Campus Ambassadors have to share, and to discover the coolest internship opportunities.
But have you ever wondered what it’s like to intern for Intern Queen. Inc, itself?
Finding the balance between academic excellence while maintaining your social life can be overwhelming for the average person. Adding a job, internship or athletics to all of that is impossible for some. Then there is you... You want to do it all.
While this is admirable, it is also difficult to do everything well. Often, taking on too much can leave one or more areas suffering.
WOWZERS, do we have a lot coming up! I’ve been in the same city (Los Angeles) for the past two weeks getting everything organized for the business and for the upcoming Intern Queen Parties. I’m so happy that I was able to have some normalcy in my life – I went to the gym, went hiking, went to the grocery store, spent time with friends, and finished creating my home office (pics coming soon!) This week marks another two week travel trip filled with a hectic work schedule, family, friends, parties, and lots of fun.
All of our Campus Ambassadors have such cool internships this summer and we wanted to know what their typical day looked like. What projects do they get to work on? What fun things happen in the office? Do they hang out with the other interns?
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.
