Footloose and Fancy-free Friday 12/10

Happy Friday all!

What news I have to share today!  Friends, I'm very excited by this.

Just about a month ago, I interviewed for an internship with a local magazine.  The interview went really well.  I felt really excited about the prospect.

A couple weeks later they invited me back for the second stage of the interview process.  Which I felt went equally as well as the initial interview.  Then Thanksgiving came and went.  The first week of December came and went.

Tuesday, one of the magazine's editors, the one I'd been interviewing with because she's over the food department of the magazine, called me up.  We've been talking and e-mailing the last couple of days and this morning it was made official.

I've received an internship with a local magazine.  It starts at the end of January.  I'm so excited for this opportunity in my life.  So, if I disappear between February and June, know it's because I'm working my tail off to make sure I do the best job I know how.

Have a good weekend everyone!


  1. Congratulations! Can you share any info about what type of magazine it is or what kind of work you'll be doing?

    Years ago, I interned at a regional magazine, a small publishing company, and a book producer. I ended up doing a wild and weird range of tasks, but I have to say all experiences were positive. One of them even led to steady freelance work which helped me land the job I have today (at a different magazine).

    Good luck!

  2. Wow, congratulations! A friend of mine started out as you are and ended up being the editor! Lots of mobility awaits. Work your buns off and see what happens! Good luck! (And have a great weekend!)

  3. Congratulations! That sounds like so much fun. Will you be working in the food section? I think it's for my own good that I don't write about food.

  4. Ooo! Much congrats. Sounds like a great job. :o)

  5. Congrats!

    Enjoy the moment. I was fortunate to score an internship at a magazine once. It was fantabulous!

  6. Congratulations, Stephanie! That's wonderful, wonderful news!

  7. Sweet! Congratulations. I hope it's wonderful.

  8. Congratulations! That is so exciting! You'll love it!

  9. What an exciting way to start the new year. Congratulations. I look forward to hearing about your experience.

  10. Thanks everyone! As for what I'll be doing, primarily I'll be fact-checking articles that are going to be printed. I believe they'll largely be in the food section, but I'm not certain on that.

  11. Yay congrats Stephanie! That's awesome :)

    I'm hoping to get an internship or similar in book publishing once I start my diploma. Hopefully it will help me get my foot in the door.

    I hope it's enjoyable for you.

  12. I'm very proud of you for getting an internship, Stephanie. :) I just know you'll do great.
