Lauren Berger founded Intern Queen Inc. in 2009 after recognizing the need for a more personalized way for young people to connect with the internships and career opportunities of their dreams. Today, she runs both internqueen.com and the big-sister site for the brand, laurenbergerinc.com. She also founded and oversees the IQ Campus Marketing Agency which helps connect brands (Ford Motor Company, Dell, Target) with the ambitious network of young people using her platforms.
Berger is a champion for young ambitious people fighting their way to the top. Years ago, she was one of them. Today, she’s their hero.
Berger is arguably the nation’s most in demand career and internship expert and speaks to thousands of high school students, college students, and recent grads every year, motivating and inspiring them. Berger just wrapped speaking tours sponsored by Target and The Ford Motor Company.
Her first book, All Work, No Pay: Finding an Internship, Building Your Resume, Making Connections, and Gaining Job Experience, is a national best-seller and required reading at several colleges and universities. Her second book, Welcome To The Real World, came out last year. In the new book, Lauren re-writes the rules for millennials in the workplace, demonstrating how to succeed in their first, second, and third jobs after graduation. Recently Berger has been featured on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, the Marie Osmond Show, The New York Times, Seventeen Magazine, and more. She currently oversees all internship content for About.com, one of the largest job websites in the world.
Berger’s newest venture is her Youtube Channel, offering weekly advice on internships, jobs, leadership, and entrepreneurship. She releases new advice videos every Wednesday with bonus content released twice a month.
