Interns have helped us out a lot over the last 10 years and not surprisingly a lot of them have gone on to very successful careers. Mick started to intern at Star Trak before becoming Pharrell’s assistant and traveling the world. Other examples, such as Neil Jacobson, who is now a senior executive at Interscope (he also manages Robin Thicke and Kelis just to name a few) and Shaun “tofu” Jaffier who is on the air every morning with Angela Yee on Shade 45. More recent interns are just starting off their career such as Laetitia who’s in Paris working for Comme des Garçons, Cassell who’s working on his photography and Lacey who works for us but discovered a new passion while in Japan. Perri Dash also currently works for us and has teamed up with our former intern Chris(iFFY), who is now working on his music career(check it out below). Moral of the story is that you have to take advantage of your environment while interning, the jobs you are asked to do might suck or might not be that interesting but it’s all about networking and getting your hustle on to take it to the next level!
