Hi From Your New Fall Intern

Hey fellow Edsters! (Ha! It’s so weird to be on the other side of this blog!)

It’s 11 p.m. the night before my first day and I’m psyched! A bit frazzled over what I’ll wear and, of course, just keeping my fingers crossed that day one goes smoothly, but for the most part, I’m so excited that I wonder how I’ll ever get to sleep tonight!

A quick about me: I’m a journalism and media student in New York, and — like most of you — absolutely obsessed with magazines and totally fascinated by the new twists and turns of web and the digital world.

Speaking of twists and turns of the digital world, this won’t be my first (or second, or even third) editorial internship, but it was the first time I landed a position through a Skype video interview!! In fact, I’m pretty sure it was the first time my editors had conducted one too!! Which I think is so awesome, and one of the many ways the digital era is shifting and updating the industry.

Say Hello to our New Fall Intern

Hey Edsters,

We hope you enjoyed reading the real dish of our four summer intern bloggers. Wish them luck as they graduate or move on to a new school year—oh, what's that? You feel like you need more inside dirt on what it's really like to make it as an editorial intern in 2010?

Lucky you! On Monday, we bring you a special, first-time-only fall intern to share her magazine exploits as Ed's Features Intern.

In the meantime, you have all weekend to catch up on all the posts for Ed's Web, City, Lifestyle, and Edit interns. Get at it!

Goodbye from the Web Intern

Dear Edsters,

Here we are! The end of the summer is, unfortunately, upon us. But, don’t despair! Fall brings with it another array of pleasant surprises: new school supplies, new clothes, new classes, and, if need be, a fresh start. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this last Labor Day weekend. As a farewell to you all, I thought I would compile a list of things that I have learned this Summer, during my internship and not:

1. School is fantastic. As per my previous post, you know I’m a geek. But, seriously, treasure it, and try to keep that creative energy and flow throughout your life. Even when school will be over.

2. Making money is fulfilling. But working hard for it, and seeing results is even greater.
