How can you tell that times are changing? When you can make a video, post it on YouTube, and get a summer job out of it! Well, actually, there was a lot more to it than that — you know, interviews and applications and writing samples — but my shameless attempt to get a dream EW internship eventually led to…a real EW internship! Now I’m here, and it’s great.

I’ve been working in the EW New York offices for almost a month now, and things couldn’t be going any better. I’m learning, I’m writing, and I’m soaking in the whole experience. Since I’m having such a good time, I thought it might be fun to give people a little glimpse of what it’s like to be an intern here, so I put together another video — only this time, it’s in the EW offices, not my bedroom. Check out what a day in the life of an EW intern is like:

Fun stuff, right? It definitely beats working at Chick-Fil-A for the summer! (Which, for the record, I have done. Twice.)
