How did you go about finding internships? How helpful did you find them?
Sarah: I highly recommend reaching out to Joe Browning. I hounded him about interning for him. I arranged my schedule so I could work for him. I showed him my writing and I was like I will be here in the fall whether you like it or not.
Consensus: Internships are worth it, pursue them and be persistent!
How do you balance family life and professional life?
Ashlie: I have a four year old and a two year old. I work full time and so does my husband. You just figure out a way to make it work. I have a huge support system around me.
Ryan: I definitely agree that you have to have a support system. Without my mom, I don’t know what we would do. You make it work, if something happens you make the best of it.
Ashlyn: I don’t even have time to date. I’ve just been so focused on my career, it hasn’t bothered me.
Group consensus: Flexibility and balance are key!
