As the weather becomes warmer, the days get longer, and the rain boots start to appear, most students are beginning to wind down in their spring internships. Regardless of one’s academic background, the “internship experience” has become a seemingly essential feature of every young professional’s resume. However, as important as this experience may be in helping get one’s foot in the door, eventually every intern hits a point where they are ready for a “real job.” After all, who doesn’t look forward to regular hours, building a resume and, of course, a full-time salary?

If you think The Feminine Mystique isn’t still relevant today, then you have got another think coming. Atlantic writer Phoebe Maltz Bovy recently pointed out that unpaid internships, especially those in fashion, are often written off as a rich kid problem — specifically, a rich girl problem, as women take the majority of unpaid internships and usually have another source of income (most likely their parents.)

Last week, reports of Tony Blair’s no-payment policies for his company’s interns sparked serious controversy in the UK, especially since the former prime minister, known fondly as the Labour Prime, was the one who introduced the minimum wage for low paid earners in the first place. More
Internships often get a bad rap. While they are good resume-builders and give you the experience employers look for, they are often unpaid and require you to do the most menial of work. However, there are internships that provide you with everything an internship should–an educational experience, meaningful work and a resume boost. And with the recovering economy, internships are a great way to break into your chosen field. If you’re still unconvinced, or you’re looking for an internship that will actually teach you something, look no further. Vault.com, a source for employer and university rankings and ratings, released Tuesday their list of the 10 best internships of the year based on networking opportunities, training, meaningfulness of the work, and intern satisfaction.

It is very hard to get internships at fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta and Balenciaga. They are the jobs that every young aspiring fashionista desires. But now you can get them, if you have $10,000 to spare.

The money will benefit charity which is great but do these people know what usually happens during a fashion internship?

I am currently contacting everyone in my network to see if they have any advice or connections and am starting a blog, but I feel like this is not enough. Do you have any advice for how to make up for lost time?”
According to Glee, the film The Devil Wears Prada was a bunch of lies. Interns at famous fashion magazines aren’t forced to run dumb errands, work 1,000 hours a week and take orders from a boss who doesn’t even know their name. According to this show, at Vogue you can get promoted from intern to right hand man to a top editor over night. You can also break into an office in the middle of the night and let your weird roommate try on clothes and then film this and make a music video. You won’t even get a slap on the wrist for that. Instead you will get your editor breaking into an Annie medley complete with a dance break. More
