Breaking into competitive job markets is tough. Lots of people want jobs in fields like the music or movie business, fashion, advertising and publishing. Internships are a great way to get your foot in the door.

What Is An Internship?

An internship is a temporary position that provides on the job training. Internships can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, with the idea that you will gain valuable work experience and meet people who can help you get a job afterward. Some internships are paid, but many are not. The upside is that many companies hire their interns once their apprenticeship is finished.

Where Do I Find Internships?

Employers love interns because they’re inexpensive and often do the work other employees don’t like to do. You can find internships in almost any field. To find an internship, first decide what kind of career you’d like to gain experience in. For example, if you’d like to work in publishing, think about which magazines you like, then check out their websites to see if they have internship programs. If you want to work in fashion, research local designers. Don’t forget about checking with your teachers—your school may also have internship programs set up with local businesses.

What Does An Intern Do?

Depending on which field you enter, an intern can do everything from fetching the morning coffee to styling a photo shoot. But most of the time you’ll get stuck doing the dirty work that needs to get done. Sometime the tasks you get assigned aren’t as glam as you imagined. But just remember the valuable experience you’re gaining. Everybody has to pay their dues before they can hit the big time!

listen to music, watch a movie etc distract yourself- but don't do it so obviously that you're thinking about what you're getting distracted from.​ try getting through every day by doing small normal things. listen to music, occupy yourself- don't listen to anything upsetting or watch anything sad too. listen to upbeating songs, things that'll lift you up a little, movie that might make you laugh. positive movies// she's the man the princess diaries despicable me ice age 2/3/4​​​​​ pitch perfect upbeating songs// maroon 5- sugar the script- hall of fame (ft. the black eyed peas- i g​​​​​otta feeling alex adair- make me feel better ella henderson- glow sigala- easy love​​​ i hope this helped anybo​dy- sorry if i didn't e.e -Manu do you have any tips for​ dealing with loss?​

dealing with the loss of a family member or a friend can be hard, especially if you were close to them. for some people, the pain doesn't go away easily, and you might find it hard to deal with for months, even years. anyway, i'm hoping the tips below will help you- they've helped me. :) - ​give yourself space, and other people too. some people might like t​he company of someone supporting them, others prefer their own space. it depends what type of person you are. just let yourself be peaceful, try not to cloud your mind with unnecessary thoughts, especially negative ones. ​let your feelings out if you wanna cry, cry. let all your emotions out. it's unhealthy keeping them bottled in​; just let them out- gradually. talk to someone, like a friend or a sibling/parent. rant to them, let it all out if you don't want to keep it to yourself. punch a pillow if you're angry, just don't keep it in. don't EVER consider suicide. please. there's a purpose for everybody on this world- that means you too.​​ think of the person who passed away- if he/she was still alive today, they wouldn't want you to end your life. don't ever do it- stay strong, and keep going through it- the journey can be difficult but you'll make it. ending your life is not the answer to someone's passing. it never is.
