Lauren had been dubbed “The Intern Queen” by local and national press after participating in fifteen internships during her four years of college. FOX, NBC, MTV, BWR Public Relations are some of the companies that stand out on her resume. As “The Intern Queen”, Berger developed an internship consulting service and an intern-themed clothing line, Internal EthiKs. She picked up the award for “Best Young Entrepreneur of the Year” at the 2007-2008 Stevie Awards in Vegas last year.
Lauren relocated to Los Angeles in 2006 post-graduation and immediately started working for a top player at Creative Artists Agency. Through her job at the agency, Lauren was introduced to Marshall Herskovitz, a major Hollywood Producer, very interested in Lauren’s internship business. Herskovitz brought Lauren into his company to create the Quarterlife Internship Program Powered by The Intern Queen. Together, they have created the best internship listing site on the internet, connecting students and employers. The new site is www.quarterlife.com/intern.
