Subject: Meet the girl who's interned with Instyle, Grazia and Marie Claire
Name: Emilie Hill
Current occupation: Fashion Journalism student at The London College of Fashion (second year)
Have you ever interned? If so, where?
Instyle, Grazia, Marie Claire, ITV, The Sunday Times and The Telegraph
One thing you wish you knew before starting out in the industry:
It is a smaller industry than you think - but that's not a bad thing! Everyone has a connection with someone so remember to always make a good impression.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?:
Working for a London based traditional newspaper in the fashion features department (I hope!)
One piece of advice to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps:
It takes a lot of hard work and determination, it is competitive but you need to be focused and stay focused on your own ultimate career goal.
What advice would you give to someone who has no clue what they want to do?
Really hone in on your interests or maybe even your subjects at school. Are you into English? Does a job in journalism sound something up your street? Or are you artier so maybe a graphic design role or design career might be your calling? Also speak to others already in the industry if you can, find out their pathways into the industry and that might help you shape yours.
One fun fact about you?
I am half French (but not completely fluent lol)
Where can people find you?
