Interning: it’s the wonderful limbo of your career (and just as exciting as the dance game of the same name). Like reaching the half way point of Mount Everest, one can’t help feeling a huge sense of achievement in simply making it this far (not to give the impression that I am speaking from experience… as far as Everest goes at least!). The peak is almost visible through those hazy clouds of apprehension and the idea of turning back seems utterly dismal. Below lies that retail job you swore you’d never do again and eternity spent in your childhood bedroom. But aloft lies the possibility of that rarest of rare gems… your dream job.

If you are lucky enough to have this professional dry run – the dress rehearsal for your career – here are a few essential items I suggest every intern pack:
