“Great place to begin working in the fashion industry”
The fashion assistant, market director, and even fashion director were extremely kind and open to working closely with interns. This definitely helped later in life.
Because of the vast number of interns, there was often little to do at the beginning of the summer. By August, many interns had quit and responsibility increased.
Advice to Senior Management:
Like in a magazine, be sure to edit down the number of interns in each department!

A great entry level position for a strong motivated sophomore in college. Can help open up many doors, but be ready to put in the time and effort. Magazines can make or break your love for the fashion industry.

There were about 12 interns, and I don’t even think the staff knew most of our names. It was basically all grunt work and the environment was very hierarchical. I don’t think Marie Claire values their interns very much; we were pretty much just the unpaid hired help. I don’t think I learned any valuable skills or insight into the industry.
