Aspiring fashion and media students in college, as well as transitioning professionals from other careers, seek internships to gain the necessary experience that is required for these industries. In addition, many universities and colleges require students to complete an internship as part of their degree program. In some industries, interns spend their time performing duties that are not directly related to their field of study, and often times are unpaid. Journalism and fashion interns frequently encounter these issues. Chic Spy Studio, a virtual internship program with TheChicSpy.com serving as the publishing platform, is poised to change the way students and transitioning professionals in these fields, experience their internships. Whatever level the ‘Asset’ (a.k.a. intern) has reached in their career or where they are located, this innovative program will offer them a more enriched opportunity including real-world experience, an online portfolio, and personal branding mentorship. It’s the next generation of online publishing.
