Tips for fashion interns...

As season Four of the hit US show comes out on DVD, we take a look at two of the programmes best loved characters and their determination and grit to make it in one of the most notoriously unforgiving industries in the world: Fashion journalism.
Finding an internship, let alone a job writing about fashion is one of the most difficult things to achieve and so when Blair (Leighton Meester) and Dan (Penn Badgely) get the opportunity to intern at W-Magazine they are prepared to do just about anything to stand out from the crowd.
If you put in the work and do it right, internships can prove to be a valuable experience, where you not only develop your confidence skills, but better your knowledge and fill up your contacts book.
And you can achieve all this even if you don't end up with the job at the end of it.
If you're lucky like Blair and Dan then interning at a fashion magazine can open your eyes to the glamorous world that only designers and priviledged journalists and editors get to step into.

The determined duo manage to attend events, write for their magazines blog and even have contact time with their editor-in-chief. And while you may think that these are rare opportunities, if you prove yourself, put yourself forward and don't be afraid to ask for something, then you never know what you may be asked to do.
It wouldn't be a hit drama if there wasn't a hefty dose of backstabbing, sabotage and betrayl thrown into the mix, but do your job properly and try not to step on anyones toes, then you're likely to glide through your internship with nothing but a glowing report at the end of it.
There maybe a sterotypical coffee or copier run every so often, but even the top had to start at the bottom. The best advice we can give is to suck it up and learn a little from each day on the job...
