1. Treat your internship like a job.

2. Always ask questions.

3. Create a network.

4. Keeping organized is very important. When dealing with expense forms and receipts, it is important to pay attention to details and dates.

5. Communication is key. There are often multiple projects happening at once. The MTV Iggy staff has it down to a science. Whether it’s via text, email or even social media, they make sure to keep each other in the loop with details and project benchmarks.

My Most Exciting Project Working for an Of Monsters and Men concert, at the Angel Orensanz Foundation, one of the oldest surviving gothic–revival synagogues in NYC.

It was truly one of the best concerts I have ever worked or been to. It was perfect for the 1930s speak-easy themed event. Nearly everyone dressed for the theme including the band.
