Lauren Berger is the "Intern Queen." She took her experience interning during college, and made her business helping others succeed.
Lauren Berger earned the moniker, “The Intern Queen,” after she completed 15 internships during her four years of college. After graduating from Florida State University, and working for the talent agency CAA, Lauren realized she wanted to use her experiences to help other college students. In 2008, she and Marshall Herskovitz began their own company, providing a free listings site for students to search and apply for competitive internships. Now her site, InternQueen.com not only helps students locate internships, it also provides them with necessary advice and skills to secure the job, and excel at work. In January 2012, Berger published All Work, No Pay, a book that provides information on building your resume, making connections and gaining job experience.
