Tonight I attended the Intern Queen Party at the Ann Taylor flagship store where I got to meet Lauren Berger herself and network with other fellow interns in the city. The first 100 attendees received a massive tote bag (with crown emblem) stocked full of all kinds of goodies, including makeup by Flower and Elizabeth Arden. Confession- I was eagerly first in line. There were drinks, horderves (my favorite of course being the mac n' cheese bites), photo booth, panel, makeovers, and great shopping deals while we partied it up.
Lauren chats with the panel on giving intern advice and tips on how to land the job. It's all about follow up and networking ya'll! One of my favorite words of wisdom was to take on tasks that "give you butterflies in your stomach, and then crush them." Challenging yourself is the only way to truly learn. Don't be afraid to make mistakes and take chances at your internship!
Look who shared my photo of the panel on instagram...No, really!
