The TVD Telethon | Writers. We need 'em. | Day #2

One of the smartest things I ever did (and trust me, I rarely start a sentence this way) was to jump-start my career by doing an internship while I was still in college. Actually, it was an internship in structure but at the time was called a ‘co-op’ where I was able to earn some scratch via real-world professional development.

Now, we can’t offer any real-world scratch, but we can offer professional development for you bourgeoning bloggers and writers. Imagine if you will, spearheading the content of a blog that reaches nearly 40K individuals a month from all corners of the globe as a career track via an internship right here at TVD. I’ll sign the forms. I’ll report to your counselor. I’ll offer the professional advice. (Horn toot: 20+ years in marketing and art direction over here. Owned my own ad agency, etc.)

So...students of all stripes, don’t be afraid to pick up that phone and make your pledge this very day.

An internship. At TVD. The experience of a lifetime. (And when measured in internet time that's...er, what were we talking about again?)

Anyway, what’s a telethon without some big name talent to take the stage as to make you reach for that mouse and pledge your support to the blog? Why, that’s not a telethon at all. So, ladies and gentlemen, in support of TVD’s Writers Telethon—Sir Elton John:
