Internship Success Stories

Christian NollnerChristian Nollner (BPS '08) successfully completed an unpaid internship at Vera Wang Maids, the bridesmaid showroom and companion to the Vera Wang Bridal House in New York City. She said, "I've always been interested in fashion. My first job was at a retail store." Nollner's eight week internship helped her better understand the fashion industry and the company. She is now a bridal stylist at the Vera Wang Bridal House. "I think it showed a lot of courage to actually move up to New York City from Memphis to do an unpaid internship. They didn't offer housing or board for me. That was a little tough, but I think it spoke volumes." The internship provided the perfect springboard for Nollner to land a full time position with the company.
