I’ve had a number of fans reach out and ask me exactly how I wrote my book. I know several of you are working on writing projects of your own so I wanted to shed some light on my writing process.

1. Make a Timeline For Yourself. I usually work backwards. For my most recent book, my deadline was September 1st. I started writing in May. I gave myself a two week cushion and decided I was going to be done writing by August 16th.

Should College Credit Be Required For Internships?

At Florida State University, I wasn’t able to get internship credit until I was a junior/senior. I got my first internship the spring semester of my freshman year of college and was told I couldn’t get credit for it. I was able to get “transcript recognition” for the opportunity - my career center helped me with that. After that, I was told at FSU and UCF that I couldn’t get anymore internship credit. I did my other 14 internships for the experience. Those internships were the most valuable opportunities of my life. I would do them again in a heartbeat.

Stage 1: Excitement, Eagerness and Enthusiasm
Three months ago, I walked out of Kenan Stadium at UNC Chapel Hill where I was one of 35,000 graduates and their families to hear Steve Case, co-founder of AOL, encourage us to go out into the world and seek opportunity. So, in typical Gen Y fashion, I left commencement inspired and ready to get out there, eager to make a difference.

Stage 2: Frustration

Last night I finally had the opportunity to read the September issue of Instyle! I’d been waiting for so long (I was working on meeting my book deadline). I really enjoy Diane Von Fursternberg’s (DVF) column on fashion every month. I was immediately drawn to the question from a reader about what to wear to her new job (real estate job). She wanted to look professional but age appropriate. Diane’s must-haves to create that workplace look are:

1. Leather Pencil Skirt

2. Silk Button Down (Versatile)

I’ve been speaking with my Intern Queen Ambassador Alumni - who are now employed at some of the nation’s leading companies all over the US.

1. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people and set up informational interviews. Alicia says these helped her grow her professional network. They helped her get her foot in the door for opportunities down the road.
