Lauren is an Interior Designer at Gensler, NYC. Her career path began with a high school fashion internship that we established for her in New York City. At Scarsdale High, Lauren had previously taken the Saturday program at Fashion Institute of Technology and wanted to have a “behind the scenes” experience in the fashion industry. We established an internship at Style-Caster, a NYC on-line fashion company with an energetic young staff. In her Internship Connection journal, Lauren wrote:
“What I love about the company is that my responsibilities vary day to day. I have catalogued merchandise, worked on the set of photo shoots and organized marketing events. My favorite thing was assisting guest stylists.”
Lauren’s Career Path: Scarsdale High School, Saturday Program at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Style-Caster, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Interior Design Major).
Lauren’s mentor wrote a wonderful recommendation and said that Lauren, even as a high school student, was actually helping the college interns.
“Lauren exceeded all expectations with each assigned project. Her poise made her seem mature beyond her years and her responsibilities quickly expanded. She will undoubtedly be very successful in any direction she chooses.”
It’s gratifying to see that Lauren’s responsibilities on her fashion internship served as an introduction to her college major and future career in design.
