Lauren Berger knows a thing or two about internships. The Countryside High grad, who bills herself as the “Intern Queen,” completed more than a dozen of them before she graduated college, reports TampaBay.com.
Berger, 25, parlayed her intern status into an expanding brand that includes college speaking engagements, endorsements and an online site that boasts six-figure revenues, celebrity employers and thousands of job seekers.
InternQueen.com gets 500 to 1,000 unique visitors daily. Employers pay a $75 annual fee to post an unlimited number of openings. Job candidates can apply for the first internship for free. Additional applications cost $3 each.
Berger forwards their resumes to contacts at companies such as Interscope Records, Seventeen magazine, Sirius XM Radio, Clear Channel and Nielsen Co.
