Fashion Internships & Pop Culture: Gossip Girl Joins the Mix

Healthy competition never seems to hurt...

Internships pervade pop culture (and reality TV) and if you’ve read our blog in the past, you know that tons of celebrities got their careers started as interns. Sweet.

Shows like The Hills and The City have come and gone – offering viewers an inside look into the competitive lifestyle of high fashion interns in New York. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen a new entrant into the pop culture internship domain through the uber-popular show Gossip Girl.

Blair and Dan landed internships at a fashion magazine in NYC, and well, the rest was history… No spoilers here, in case you still have the last few episodes saved on your DVR.

We just wanted to give a little shout-out to our neighbors, the CW Network, here in Los Angeles, for developing an internship storyline smack in the middle of internship search and application season. Though the events may be exaggerated and may not mirror real life, that’s besides the point… What is more important, is that Gossip Girl is superbly capturing the anxiety, competition and general zeitgeist of a ‘stressed out’ internship search and experience.

Our goal at Internships.com is to make that experience much less stressful than it seems to be for Blair and Dan. So,good luck in your internship search this spring.

Check out the hundreds of fashion opportunities available on-site today.

Thanks, I’ll tell Yair (the author). We know it’s his favorite show, too — even though he won’t admit it.

My favorite show is “SportsCenter,” though Gossip Girl is a close second.
