haleigh asks:
Hey Eva, I am looking into internships for the upcoming summer up north (Georgia just isn't cutting it anymore) and I'm wondering if you have any advice as to how to go about landing the dream internship be that in fashion, or the entertainment industry in general?

why, yes, as a matter of fact, I do! in a nutshell: 1) start applying early (at least three months before you’d like to begin. and most places accept interns on a semester basis, fyi!). 2) apply often. it’s wonderful to have goals and to have a dream of working at, say, Vogue or W magazines. but don’t limit yourself to just two options. apply to as many internships (at least!) as you did colleges. but be targeted about it. don’t wallpaper the masthead of a magazine with your resume. really think about what department (art! beauty! fashion! entertainment!) interests you most and apply directly to them with an email/resume. and 3) develop a thick(ish) skin. if you don’t hear back from one internship, follow up… then try, try again!
