- Effectively tracked incoming and outgoing clothing samples - Maintained an organized fashion closet - Assisted on photoshoots - Conducted miscellaneous research assignments - Credit requested shot looks from perspective PR agents


My greatest accomplishment was actually going to the photo shoots and making connections. These connections will help me for the rest of my career and still help me now after my internship is over. I also got to pick out a couple of garments that were actually shot in a photoshoot. I cannot wait to see it in the November issue!

What advice would you give?

When you're an intern it's crucial to take criticism well and listen to it while still having a positive attitude. People will notice your positive attitude and they will trust you to take on more tasks.
