Want An Elle Internship? Put “Homeless” On Your Resume!
Maybe sleeping in the doorway is the best way to get your foot in the door? It worked for Bri, a blogger who was living in a Wal-Mart parking lot. A few months back, she auditioned for a reality show for aspiring advice columnists where the winner would receive an internship at Elle with their longtime advice disher, E. Jean. Too bad Bri completely bombed the audition, and, of course, blogged about it. She decided to write her sob story directly to E. Jean. Jean was so moved by her letter that she responded in her monthly column. In it, she offered Bri an internship with her! In the mag, Jean opined, “At the end of the four months, if you don’t have a job and an awesome place to live, I will become your intern.” We’re looking forward to finding out which Bri finds more unpleasant — homelessness or interning at a fashion magazine.
