Spring semester of 2012 I have been interning at Philadelphia Style Magazine. At my internship I assist the publisher’s assistant. Interning at Philadelphia is a wonderful experience. The past few months we put together the Tori Burch issue of the magazine. Since I intern for the publishers assistant we handled a lot of the advertising. This consisted of filing contracts, filing names into the database and calling a lot of advertisers. Doing this has gotten me very comfortable with speaking to people on the phone. I have received the opportunity to see how advertising travels through a magazine and what goes into getting the ad in to the final copy. Doing this internship has really shown me a different way of dealing with advertising, by getting to see what publishing has to offer. Currently we are working on getting together everything for the May June issue deadline.
Until Next Time
