5 Tips to Slay Your Virtual Internship
By Giselle Ormeno
Okay, so you're one of the fortunate ones who could secure a virtual internship. Great!
Virtual internships are currently the safest way to be able to get experience and build your skill set. These kinds of internships offer incredible opportunities to gain new skills and explore what interests you, all from the comfort of your home. With the flexibility of not having to travel, you can have your dream internship even if you don't have means of transportation or are located in a different city or state.
However, just because there's a pandemic doesn't mean that you can't get the most out of your virtual internship. If this is your first time doing an internship or even if you have had a virtual before, these tips can help you feel less stressed and overwhelmed.
1. Set Yourself Up for Success
Having a clean workspace with a notebook and reliable Wi-Fi is essential to succeed as a virtual intern. Zoom meetings or check-ins are common communication methods for a virtual team, so you don't want your manager or supervisor to have any trouble reaching you.
Also, make sure that you look presentable while attending these meetings. Lighting is your best friend when it comes to looking good in a virtual meeting. For optimal lighting, sit by a window or you can even buy a LED light ring to give you a boost.
Even though it's a virtual setting, remind yourself that you need to be as professional as you would be in person.
2. Get Yourself Organized
Start your virtual internship strong by having a place to write all critical deadlines and important dates.
There are many benefits to having a planner. It can help you keep yourself organized and lessen your anxiety when trying to remember deadlines.
A planner is not limited to helping you stay organized for your internship, but iti can be helpful in other areas of your life, such as school. Balancing school and an internship during the pandemic are hard to deal with at times, so help make your life easier by using a planner.
Another alternative is buying a monthly calendar whiteboard and setting it up above your workspace. There you can write crucial and important dates for that month to keep you on track.
3. Communication is Key
Staying connected while being virtual is essential. You never want your manager or boss to wonder what you're working on or if you're not working at all.
Remember to check in with your team at the beginning of your shift with details of what you will work on throughout the day. Even if it doesn't seem necessary, let them know when you are going to take a break or your lunchtime. This in return helps your team know when to contact you or not.
At the end of your shift, I recommend sending a recap to your team, letting them know what you accomplished during your shift. These recap emails are a great way of showing your team your work ethic.
4. Connecting with Fellow Interns
Having a virtual internship can make you feel like you’re alone, but it doesn't have to be like that. Remember that the other interns that you see throughout your virtual meetings might also feel this way.
Make an effort to get to know your fellow interns by following each other on social media or exchanging phone numbers. It's a great way to bond over your internship together and help each other out. Your manager or boss might not always be available to answer your questions, but your intern friend mostly likely will be.
During your internship, connect with other interns professionally through LinkedIn.
Remember that it's all about networking and creating relationships during your internship that can help you in the long run in your career. By connecting professionally through LinkedIn, you and your intern friends will mutually benefit from this.
5. Don't Forget to Give Yourself a Break
With everything being virtual, it's easy to forget to give yourself a break. It's great that you want to accomplish so many things, but you also have to remember that you're only one person. And as much as you want to contribute and help out, if you don't take the time to take a break, you'll burnout.
To prevent burnout, make sure to set a time when you are free from your virtual internship, school, or anything you else taking your time.
A set schedule is a great way to set boundaries when you're available or not available. For example, freelance writer Ashley Jones wrote that setting time limits around checking work emails proved that she was less stressed and still was as productive as when she used to read her work emails without a set time.
Be honest with yourself when your virtual internship is burning you out because denying it is just going to cause your mental health to worsen.
We're still dealing with the pandemic and staying healthy is important, so make sure to give yourself a break when you need it. Remember that above all things, your mental health is the most important thing!

Working a retail job is usually a college student’s first foray into paid employment. Many look at their retail job as something easy that can put extra cash in their pockets. However, you can utilize the skills you learn from your classes and apply them to any job. Public relations has so many functions within a business that you can use these skills within any role. Fashion retail is a great environment to practice as there are many situations in which you can practice these skills. Here are the top three ways I use PR in fashion retail.
1. Crisis Management
If you’ve ever worked in fashion retail (or any customer service job), it is inevitable that you will encounter a difficult customer. Let’s say, for example, a customer comes in looking for a specific jacket. Your store’s online system says that the item is in stock, however, you find out that the item is sold out and the online system was not updated. You let the customer know and they are furious due to the fact that they had to drive over an hour to get to the store. What do you do? Utilize your PR skills in crisis management! In public relations, managing a crisis for your client can make or break their reputation. In this case, mishandling this situation can result in the loss of a customer and could damage your store’s credibility. Instead of dismissing the customer with a “Sorry about that” statement, try assisting them in finding an item that is similar in style. Perhaps even call a nearby store to see if they could potentially have the item in stock. In doing so, you could avert a crisis and save the reputation of your store – all while making the customer happy and (hoepfully) making a sale.
Usually when you hear about public relations, the word “brand” is most likely to be brought up. Proper branding is important for an organization in order to communicate a clear message. A big component of public relations is essentially telling your audience a story about your client’s “brand.” In fashion retail, we can compare this to visual merchandising. In most stores, apparel is merchandised according to a specific customer profile and is presented in a way that tells a story to the customer. Your store is focusing on selling jackets? Cool, let’s add a layering piece next to the jacket. Maybe the customer might want to look at some pants? Add in a piece that enhances the overall look with the pants. Public relations professionals are constantly looking at elements of their clients that they can pull together to make a cohesive story. In relation to fashion retail, you wouldn’t place a leather jacket with some board shorts, would you? Rather, you might want to pair it with some cool black jeans as it communicates a refined look, curates a customer profile, tells a story of potential customer interests and most importantly, helps support the “brand” messaging to the customer.
3. Media Relations
A crucial part in succeeding in the PR industry is the skill of relationship building. Public relations professionals build a working relationship with journalists and vice versa in order for both parties to be successful in their goals. In reference to fashion retail, we could look at this as the interview process for a potential employee. When conducting interviews, you are either the publicist or the media. When interviewing a potential hire, you are essentially talking about the company you work for. You discuss company values, what they stand for and how they stand out compared to their competitors. On the flip side, the interviewee may have some questions regarding job responsibility or how the company enforces certain policies. It is your job to truthfully answer any question that comes up and to always keep your company’s image in mind. In the end, it is important to build on that relationship as you might hire a really good employee and that employee will enjoy working for a company where their values coincide with each other.
The next time you are at work, try to think of ways to implement what you learned about PR and put it into practice. Remember that you don’t have to be in a public relations position to utilize these skills. Start now and by the time you graduate and land that public relations job it will all come easily, thanks to that retail job you had in college.
Head over to your favorite retail store and see if they’re hiring. You can flex your public relations skills while also looking good doing it! It’s a win-win!

Recently, there has been a huge rise in influencers and influencer marketing. Social media has created a variety of opportunities for people to become influencers and earn income and popularity. We have watched how much influencers have grown and obtained collaborations with big brands that boosted their popularity. Top influencers like Bretman Rock, James Charles, Emma Chamberlain, Liza Koshy, Manny Mua, who began small social media careers on YouTube, have branched off and expanded to other channels and are now living extravagant lives. It’s a fact that social media and influencer marketing will continue to grow and this can become a career for many more people, including you! Here you’ll learn about the nine most important steps you don’t want to miss on your journey to becoming a social media influencer.
1. Choose the topics you want to influence others about. In other words, choose your niche.
If you are planning on creating a career off social media, you have to start off with a good foundation. The first and most important step is choosing your niche is deciding what you want to talk about? This can be a variety of things, but a good tip is to start off with one big thing. It can be skincare, makeup, technology, home decor, gaming, or something else. But, it has to be something you enjoy and have enough knowledge about. In other words, what kind of influencer do you want to be?
2. Decide which media platforms/ channels you will use.
A lot of influencers began their career on YouTube and then moved to other channels. Today, Instagram has become one of the best ways to engage audiences due to its visual appeal. It is imperative to consider which platforms you will be using to reach out to your audience. Your content plan will depend on the social media channels you decide to use; therefore, this is something you have to decide early on.
3. Optimize your website and social media channels.
Once you’ve decided which channels you will be using, you have to make sure all of your channels have complete and consistent information on them. If you have a website it is highly recommended that you optimize it first before you begin working on your social media channels. Your website should be the home of all the content you’re sharing on social media. If you will be referring people to your website, it should be organized and it should have everything they need to know about you. You also have to ensure you have engaging profile pictures, bios and cover photos, that is the first thing someone will look at when they get to your page, so make it nice!
4. Identify who your audience is or will be.
Identifying your audience is a vital step to success as an influencer. You will need to know who they are, what they like and why they are following you. Identifying your audience erroneously can cause you to lose followers because you are not producing the content they were expecting. Knowing what your audience likes will allow you to understand how you need to engage with them
5. Create a content plan.
The content you want to produce must be tailored to the channels you decide to use. A content plan can look different for Twitter and Instagram or YouTube, but you can tailor it to fit all of the above. Ensure that this plan is relevant to what your audience wants to see. You must also be sure that you create a plan or strategy that can be accommodated for future brand promotions.
6. Be consistent.
After you’ve created a content plan, you must also develop a posting schedule and be consistent with it. If your followers feel like you are connected with them, they will become more engaged with you. Once you have a schedule be sure to follow it and don’t miss postings. A good tip is to use the three to one rule, three gives to one get. This means that you will post three things that give knowledge, tips, or fun and post one thing that you want your followers to do. Doing this can be a fun way to stay consistent and to allow your followers to engage with you.
7.Contact brands and other influencers (Collabs).
Create a pitch to contact several brands you are interested in collaborating with. There are two main ways to achieve brand sponsorships: one is by you reaching out to them and the second is them reaching out to you. When you are ready to contact brands, be sure that your pitch is appealing and that you talk about the benefits the brand will have if they collaborate with you. Remember to reach out to brands that fit your niche and try not to go out of it. For example, if you are all about makeup and skincare then your followers will not be interested in gaming or anime brands. Stay in your lane!
8. Build your network, Stay engaged.
Once you’ve followed the steps above it is now time to focus on connecting with the rest of the influencer community. Building your network can determine future opportunities for collaborations, which can potentially increase your following and profits. Ensure that you are engaging with others who have a similar niche and invite them to collaborate with you. This can be by creating a video together, posting photos, or hanging out and posting about it. The people you know are always a factor in your success no matter what career you’re in, so be sure you make great connections early on.
The state of influencer marketing is constantly growing and it has been determined that there will be more and more social media influencers making an impact. This is your time to prepare, learn and begin your social media career! However, remember that this is a slow process and it takes time to build followers and also to arrange your content, so being patient is key! Give yourself time to grow and to earn followers.
While this can be a fun and flexible career, it can also be mentally draining and exhausting. If you plan on starting this career be sure that you build mental breaks in your schedule. There are many opportunities for you as a social media influencer and these will continue to grow, so take your time to prepare effectively.

Five Oh-So-Yummy Plant-Based Tips
By Cristian Chavez
During this pandemic, there has been an emphasis on health. And to strengthen their bodies, many people are incorporating plant-based meals into their diets. As a novice, there is a lot to discover when you're adapting your eating habits and initially, this limits a lot of people from having a diet that brings variety and satisfaction. Whatever your reasons may be for starting this plant-based journey, your body, animals, and Mother Earth will thank you. Welcome to my five tips for a plant-based diet.
1. Protein Protein Protein
Everyone is somewhat concerned about the sources of protein that plan-based meals can provide, but it actually builds throughout the day with a variety of nutrient-rich ingredients. Every meal has the potential to add a healthy protein. Medical News Today was one of the many sites that gave me inspiration. Here are some of my protein-rich recommendations: tofu, lentils, quinoa, beans, potatoes, veggies, bread and chickpeas
2. YouTube for the Visual Learners
If searching on Google only provides you with an endless barrage of articles that you don’t want to read, try YouTube out. Mixing in some entertainment with your diet learning can lessen the frustration you may be having. There are plant-based YouTubers whose accounts are goldmines for recipes, restaurants, personal journeys, and much more. A few that I enjoy are Pick Up Limes, Minimalist Baker and Make It Dairy Free.
3. Eating Out
This was one of the hardest transitions for me because I was no longer able to visit some of my favorite restaurants that I had been going to for years. However, we are fortunate to live in Southern California where this type of cuisine is popping. In Long Beach alone, restaurants have recognized the desire and are incorporating options into their menus, and entirely plant-based restaurants are steadily increasing. Some of my restaurant recommendations are The Wild Chive, Seabirds Kitchen, Blue Bird Sushi and any Thai food restaurant
4. Online Cooking Course
There are companies who are now creating cooking courses to provide an even easier transition. You can expect insight from experts who will share their knowledge and techniques with you. Forks Over Knives is one of the veterans in the plant-based industry that will surely give you some useful knowledge.
5. Your Reason Why
No matter what your reason for beginning your plant-based journey, it is important to solidify your “why.” This motivation will get you through those challenging moments. I encourage you to take note of that reason and reevaluate it after some time of being on this diet. You may have added more reasons!
A plant-based diet will not only help your body to stay healthy, but your mind and spirit as well. All three areas are essential to keep at their peak during this pandemic. If you are considering incorporating a plant-based diet, start with these five tips for a healthier, happier life.
How to Become $neaker-Rich
By Bryan Yoon
Yeah, you read correctly, I said, “sneaker-rich...” and it is exactly what is sounds like. I don’t mean just slightly profiting from or simply possessing or obtaining an inventory that has a higher monetary value than what you actually paid for it. This blog is dedicated to help guide you in obtaining high-demand, valuable and rare items (in this case, sneakers), and turning or “flipping” them for a profit - from the shoe rack to your bank account.
Although, there are countless factors to obtaining sneakers such as “sneaker-botting,” automation tools, and paid monthly “Notify groups.” The same goes for the “reselling,” aspect, including certain variables such as where to sell, where you will get the most profit, and which sneakers are factually valuable. However, before any of those things become relevant, it is important to stay mindful and have a good foundation, before proceeding into any more advanced factors or specific capital or investments. This strategy greatly increases your chances for obtaining high-demand sneaker, known as “Grails.”
There are lots of components, as well as dedicated time and sacrifice, to learning the sneaker game. So I feel it can be easier to learn in segments and have certain fundamentals to stick by. In all honesty, early success doesn’t usually indicate fast learning, as luck can also play a part in “copping” sneakers. Therefore, this blog is dedicated to the initial focus and fundamentals when deciding to commit to sneaker buying and reselling.
5 Tools to Avoid Copyright
By Brianna Diogostine
It can be difficult to know what content you can and cannot use because of copyright laws. We are living in the age of digital creation, which leaves us with a multitude of material available but it is not all completely usable. Whether you are freelancer, work with a startup, or are employed by a well-known company, here are some tools to help navigate the world of fair use.
Copyright has an expiration date.
Yes, you read that right; but don’t get too excited. Any published work in the United States before the year 1925 is considered public domain. This means that anyone can use the published material without facing copyright infringement. With every passing year, another year’s copyright work will become available for the public to use freely. Next year (which is 2021 and hopefully a better one), all published work from 1925 will be public domain.
As each year passes the cycle continues release published works from their copyright. Well, at least until 1977. Copyrighted material published before 1976 has a seventy-year infringement upon it. Starting 1976, the copyright remains with owner until their passing plus an additional seventy years after their passing!
Proceed with caution to make sure a renewal was not made upon material you want to use. Here are some helpful websites for navigating through public domain content:
Images and Photos
Visuals are what entice viewers to your content, and you definitely do not want to get in trouble for using images without the owner’s permission. The person who takes a photo becomes the owner of said photo. Using your own photos is the safest route, but not everyone has the means or skills to do so. There are plenty of websites that offer free trials but free all the time is always better. Pixabay is a website with copyright free photos. They also have other mediums free of use, such as illustrations, videos and music. Donations are welcome and credit to the creator is not necessary. Flickr also has free photo options to choose from. After you type in your desired subject and press search, there is a tab on the left-hand side wher you can filter your search to only get non-copyrighted images. The tab is below the search bar that reads ‘any license’ and you’ll need to change it to ‘all creative commons’. There are some amazing photos to choose from and some not so amazing photos. Tread lightly.
As I previously mentioned creating your own content is the safest option for not infringing on any copyrights. Plus, it is always wonderful to learn and improve upon your skills, which you can then show off on the internet. Now days anyone can be a photographer with how well the cameras on smart phones are improving every year. The key to taking better photos is lighting, angles and a close distance to subject. After the shot has been taken it is time to edit. Play with the highlights and shadows and make sure the photo has structure (details are defined). Graphic designs seems difficult, but I have found a smart phone app that makes it easy to learn. Adobe Spark Post for Graphics is simple and fast for graphic design beginners.
There is plenty of false information out there about copyright laws. And it is super-important to know the correct information, not only so you are credible but also so you don’t get fined (or fired). A popular myth that most people believe is that anyone can use a 10 - 30 second clip from any movie and that it is fair use. This cannot be more false! Another similar misconception is that a screen grab or still from any movie is fair use and this is also not correct. Also, citing your sources does not always mean you are scott-free. Permission is not always needed, but to be safe it is better to have it.
It is important to brush up on the copyright policies whether you are working for yourself or a company. And help educate your coworkers, make sure to discuss what you know about copyright with them so they don’t make any mistakes. Reading articles and watching videos can help you brush up on your copyright knowledge. The best articles are the ones written by lawyers; they will help you get a better perspective on the law and the laws of other countries
Copyright can seem daunting and scary. But it’s not! Educate yourself about copyright laws and always err on the side of caution when using material from the internet.

Studying can be an easy task to get distracted from. With classes now being virtual due to the coronavirus, people are confined to study in their homes. Many people do not have the luck of having a private study space within their household. People fail to focus due to distractions like electronics, social media, family or just a wandering interest. Studying at school, surrounded by dozens of other people who were doing the same as you, provided a comforting environment. Students may feel lonely being by themselves, in their rooms, and this can make it hard for them to focus on their studies.
In response, a category called Study with Me on YouTube has become popular. In these videos, people film themselves studying, giving you a virtual study partner. These YouTubers allow you to go into student mode and finish off assignments you’ve probably been avoiding. On the “study with me” videos, YouTubers are doing a technique called Pomodoro, a method of cutting up study time and breaks into time intervals. In this post, we’ll provide a list of five different YouTubers who have made it their goal to help students feel like they are back in the campus library or study hall.
1. Gutsy Studygirl
Gutsy Studygirl’s videos are really relaxing, as she does not speak much and gives the audience views of herself doing her work from the side, to make it seem like she’s sitting next to someone. Sometimes she points the camera out her window to let the viewers see what she sees out the window during her studies. Most of her videos take place in her room, like other “study with me” Youtubers, since libraries are not an option for studying these days. There’s always room between her and the camera to create the feeling of if you are really in the same room. She also has a few videos where she does use the Pomodoro method, but the majority are of her studying for hours without a break.
2. The Sherry Formula
Sherry adds a boho aesthetic in her study with me videos. The atmosphere she gives in her videos are as if the audience came over for a study date or study session in the comfort of her home. She gives options on her videos such as if you prefer to watch a long or short video or if you prefer to watch a video with or without sound. She uploads several videos of the same session where in each video there would be either music, background noise or no noise at all. She even uploaded four different videos where two of the videos included Pomodoro method and the other two only had one break session in the middle of the study session.
3. TheStrive Studies
In her YouTube videos, she does many real time study sessions, whether she is in her room or at her university. She sets a serious vibe in her videos which motivates the viewers and makes them feel like they need to hit the books. Her videos range from 30 minutes to 2 hours, which gives the viewers options as some may not need to do long study sessions. She uses the Pomodoro method in all her videos, and to creates a quiet environment in her videos by not speaking. For breaks, when she does add music to her videos, there will be a small pause between Pomodoro intervals that give the viewer a 15 -20 minute break.
4. Elena Handtrack
Studying with music is not for everyone as it can be a distraction for some. For those on the quieter side, Elena Handtrack offers quiet study with me setting with ambient noise as she goes through her papers or types away on her computer. Just like TheStrive Studies, Elena provides a serious setting that motivates production. She does talk in the beginning of the video for a brief intro, but barely speaks at all during the rest of the session. The way she angles her camera lets you feel like you're sitting across from her at a table. If you ever feel like no one is there, just look up and remind yourself that she’s studying with you. She is the only YouTuber on this list who does not use the Pomodoro method.
Although she is traditionally known as a vlogging YouTuber, Angela also offers amazing real time study videos to her subscribers. She does Pomodoro method in her videos and speaks to her viewers nearing her breaks which does give a good virtual interaction, as if the viewer is sitting in front of her. There is no music, but the background noise and minimal talking does help in thinking that someone is in the same room as you. Studying and talking are not the greatest mix to put together, but it does defeat some of the loneliness. The talking can create a friendly atmosphere as she acknowledges your presence.
It is okay to acknowledge your loneliness during this pandemic and utilize the virtual tools we have to feel closer to other human beings. If this was a normal semester, you would be in a library or some quiet space trying to get your work done. So, why not try to recreate that environment with these “study with me” videos that help make isolation and studying a more comfortable event.

Being a college student during the pandemic is exhausting. I’ve come across a whole new set of challenges, one of them being Zoom fatigue. The only thing that seems to comfort my anxieties and help me focus is a well-crafted playlist. Although classes are online this year, it’s never too late to increase productivity with some light musical therapy. For my classmates that miss campus and need some extra help concentrating this semester, this list is for you. Here is a list of the five best Spotify playlists for studying.
If any of you are missing your favorite campus coffee shop because it’s closed, this playlist will transport you there. This collection of songs is cozy and subtle enough for studying alone or over Zoom with your friends. All you have to do is imagine yourself looking out the window at the big blue pyramid, sipping an iced coffee.
Deep Focus is a meditative playlist that is perfect for any all-nighter at home. This playlist will create a suitable study bubble to prepare you for any daunting exam. For those of you who procrastinate, last-minute studying doesn’t have to be done in silence anymore.
Another one of my favorite lyric-free options is Peaceful Piano. This playlist consists of 12 hours of harmonious background music to keep you engaged and relaxed. Grab your overly-priced textbook and begin studying from the comfort of your bedroom.
Jazz for Study
Jazz music is new territory for a lot of people, including me, but I would suggest keeping an open mind. When listening to Jazz for Study, envision yourself sitting in a comfy chair overlooking the horizon on the 5th floor of the library. If you are a smooth jazz enthusiast, or you just like soft elevator music, this playlist is your vibe.
Most instrumental playlists are compiled solely of just piano, but this list has a variety of sounds that will calm your senses and help you tap into the deepest parts of your brain. Soft Instrumental will allow you to concentrate easily and free yourself from distractions. If you are reviewing flashcards alone, this playlist is best to compliment your quiet environment away from campus.
The next time you find yourself feeling nostalgic and unable to focus, remember that an easy-going playlist can help you feel less frustrated. Click here to relax and start studying!

Viral marketing is known to be an essential part of a public relations strategy in the modern digital age. But success depends on it being done right. The best way to approach viral marketing is to first know your audience and what they are consuming in the mainstream media. Here are five trends currently going viral to help inspire your next marketing and public relations idea.
1. Tiktok Dances
The best way to know what’s trending these days is to open the TikTok app. It’s been the reason behind many of the latest trends and has kept us dancing through quarantine. From making whipped coffee to buying colorful wigs and wearing them in public, TikTok dances have made their way into the mainstream media and won’t be leaving anytime soon.
2. Online Dating
In this day and age, swiping left and right on people has become the new way of finding love, and it’s arguably become a prominent part of this generation’s culture. Online dating has also made it even more important to make your social media image look exciting and approachable. In fact, some people may even have it ingrained in their brain that a goodlooking Instagram page equals love.
3. Smart Technology
Smart technology is not only extremely helpful, but it’s also become trendy. I mean, who doesn’t want to control every aspect of their room from an iPhone? We are currently in the digital information age, and smart technology is not only making media more accessible to us, it is making it more essential.
4. Roller Skating
Another trend that came from TikTok (and a COVID-19 quarantine) is roller skating. Buying roller skates online and making fun videos with them at your local skate park has started making a huge impact on the younger generation. It’s cool and it’s fun. And what better way to successfully use viral marketing than to make it cool and fun?
5. Animal Crossing
This video game has caused an uproar on social media. Purchasing this game for your Nintendo Switch has become a worldwide trend and has even resulted in people buying Animal Crossing themed merchandise.
What other trends are currently going viral? Did I miss any? Tell us in the comments.
