Rather than doing a typical Thankful For post this week I’d like to share my thanks for the ladies that help make Jess LC happen.
It has been an incredible summer getting to work with Kylie and Caitlin and I am so thankful and impressed by their ability to learn quickly and think of creative new ventures for Jess LC. Sadly, their internships will be ending at the end of this month.
So that means… Jess LC is looking for one to two new interns for fall 2012.
We are looking for people who are friendly, enthusiastic, and smart. And more than ever, I’m hoping to find someone who loves Jess LC and what we do here. Though many people want to work in fashion as an industry, we’re looking for someone who wants to work at Jess LC specifically.
Writing skills, knowledge about the blogging industry (via reading or blogging), and attention to detail are all important. Graphic design skills like Photoshop are also a huge bonus, but not required.
Order fulfillment, customer service, and consulting on new: product launches, social media efforts, trunk shows, and lookbooks are all daily tasks.
Right now we are looking for one to two people to work with us in our Chicago studio two to ideally three days a week from September through December. The internship is unpaid. (But I am hoping to hire part-time in 2013.)
Caitlin also offered to share a bit about her experience here in her own words from an intern perspective:
Working for Jess LC over the last couple of months has proved to be an incredibly valuable experience. This is not one of those internships where you will be grasping to find the meaning in making copies and fetching coffee. I’ve loved being actively involved in the running and managing of Jess LC on a daily basis- whether it’s by filling orders, helping Jess to make decisions on collection launches, setting up for a trunk show, or handling customer service.
While I came in to the internship with plenty of enthusiasm, I didn’t know what the day-to-day job would bring, aside from hoping to get an idea of what a small, successful business looks like on a daily basis. As I reflect back, I know that I not only learned about business, but also about handling challenges with grace and gusto, time management, and trusting in myself to make decisions quickly and effectively. I highly recommend the internship with Jess LC if you are a driven individual who is ready to learn, enjoys Pandora, and wants to become part of a great team.
If you are interested in applying for the internship, please email Caitlin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading MML!
