Listen up journalism students: if your professors haven’t yet filled you in on what life is really like as a member of the media, let us share with you some of the details.
Pro: invites to exclusive events filled with celebrities and Champagne
Con: you will be working late and on weekends and won’t be available to attend
Pro: seeing your name in print
Con: seeing your typos make it past the proofreaders and appear in print under your name
Pro: mastery of the English language
Con: frustration with others who use poor grammar
Pro: media colleagues are generally super fun and way cool

If all of this sounds too tempting to resist, we’d love to christen you by fire with no pay and tough deadlines. However, we are offering college credit, the opportunity to pick our brains about everything related to writing about the luxury lifestyle, and the prestige of adding Haute Living clips to your portfolio.
