It Matters Who You Know

Meg Dowell Writes

I landed my first writing internship because of a college professor.

I wasn’t looking for an internship. I wasn’t even sure, at that point, what kind of writing I wanted to do for the rest of my life, if any.

But I applied for the position anyway, and thanks to that professor, my life changed forever.

It wasn’t just that I had the skills or motivation to qualify for the position. I did have those things, and they’re the reasons I actually got the internship. But I never would have heard about it if it weren’t for the instructor who forwarded me the email — because she knew I might be interested, based on our conversations about writing and communications.

My first full-time writing job was recommended to me by a former colleague from that internship. And I have my own references partly to thank for earning that job.
