Fresh off the heels of a summer internship with Patch.com, I was offered the opportunity to intern for Hearst’s HGTV Magazine. While this internship was not explicitly journalism, I couldn’t pass up the chance to intern with Hearst, the publisher of several of my favorite magazines. In fact, I wanted it badly enough to commit two days a week to the internship on top of a course load that included JRN 370, JRN 364, and, most dreaded of all, JRN 490. It was going to be a rough semester, but for the chance to work at Hearst, or at least to have one shining “name brand” publication on my resume, I was willing to risk it.
