Why I NEED A Glamorous Job

Andy hated her job, but at least it was uber enviable!
My job hunt has been crazy, and my internship search hasn't been any better. It's not that I can't land anything, but more in the sense that I can't land anything good enough. And, I know that seems horrible. Like, I'm not even a college sophomore [yet], so what the hell am I expecting?! Well, I'll tell you.

I want something glamorous. I know that sounds horrible and immature and very Massie Block-esque [read the Clique if you haven't yet! It. will. change. you.] but honestly, who doesn't want something glamorous?!

It may sound weird, but at FIT [Fashion Institute of Technology], having an awesome job / internship is almost like a status symbol. [Or, maybe this only holds true in my own disillusioned, workaholic mindset? Hmm...]

Example: Obviously, there's no substitution for Fendi, but working in Fendi's SoHo boutique is definitely brag-worthy. Do you see what I mean?

And in the end, she became a better [and more stylish] person.
Of course, I [for the most part] LOVED working at Starbucks last year [free coffee, hello!], but I definitely envied the attention other girls got by working at Sephora or BCBG. And I'm not saying that people will want to be your BFF if you have an amazing internship either, but it definitely adds some major points on your glam-factor. [Did I really just say that?!]

So, after realizing what I wanted, I gathered up the motivation to go get it. I applied like crazy to glam-worthy jobs and fashion internships alike, and after weeks of interviewing as if it were my full-time job, I am finally satisfied.

The saga continues.... Stay tuned! :)

  7. @Melissa Bite your finger. My boyfriend is interning at Saks Fifth Avenue, and his duties consist of mingling with executives, editing Rachel Zoe's exclusive video series, and choosing which pair of Louis Vuitton pumps to feature in this week's editorial. It happens... but only to those who make it happen.

  8. With that sort of determination and motivation, I firmly believe you will land an absolute glam-job worthy of your talents! Please keep us posted. I'm sure you'll soon be posting about your success!
