Sitting at a desk in the corner or packing up samples in a closet can make you feel more invisible than sitting in the high school cafeteria alone, but according to Amy Astley and Grace Coddington, you are always being watched.
When Coddington was asked about that infamous quote pertaining to some rather ungrateful interns, she simply stated, “Interns think they are just there to watch. No, we put you to work. We are watching them at all times. It’s an attitude we are looking for.” Baume later added, “People always think when you are interning we aren’t paying attention to you, but we are always watching. The truth is, you need to just learn to never say no. Always try to do your job well, and think ahead.”
Everyone likes working with people who come into work with a smile on and seem like they genuinely want to be there, no matter what field.
“When I see someone who is a force for darkness in the world I don’t want to be around them because life is already too hard,” Astley said.
