Additional comments:
The girls were lovely. They were so friendly and really made me feel welcome. Sometimes certain magazines can have a ‘bitchy’ air about them, with people who work there often looking down on interns, but not here.
However, the work was very minimal, basic and often boring. Nothing was challenging, but I did it anyway because it was a step in the right direction for my career in journalism.
