Ace That Internship With Help From Lauren

#Interview

The dreaded internship is causing sleepless nights to students who are about to graduate. If you’re one of them, Lauren Conrad has got your back. She spoke to Intern Queen about her own experience interning in the fashion industry.

IQ: The most important reason to have an internship under your belt
LC: Experience. The best way to learn is to do and see. Being hands on with an internship can show you what happens in real situations.

IQ: What she learned from her internship at Teen Vogue
LC: I learned that I was better designing than I was at marketing and business. That doesn’t mean I am not hands on in both but I saw where my strengths were and built on that.

IQ: Favorite and least favorite parts of interning
LC: The grunt work is never easy. Keeping track of the clothes, getting it to shoots, unpacking, packing. But it is some of the most important parts of the job. Without the clothes and credits we wouldn’t have had shoots.

IQ: Why fashion, books, and beauty
LC: Fashion was my first love and I always wanted to pursue it. I also love to read so becoming an author was exciting and something I am proud to be. As for beauty I am a girly girl at heart and playing with glam looks is especially fun for me.

IQ: Advice for those wanting to start a business
LC: Research the field, the competition, the need and the market. Perhaps try working for someone first before you invest a lot into something on your own.

IQ: Where she finds inspiration for her clothing lines
LC: From everyday life and from my travels. I also like to pull from things in nature. Colors, textures – inspiration is all around us.

IQ: Interview outfit advice
LC: Look clean and professional. Wear something that isn’t too short or that you need to fidget with. The interview should be about you and not your clothes.

IQ: Interview Beauty advice
LC: Hair should be clean and makeup minimal.
