"If you want to be surrounded by wonderful women and learn how to effectively write SEO articles, ENTITY is your place. They make you feel welcomed, appreciated, and challenged all at the same time. I had a great time with the ENTITY team. Thanks for having me!"
(M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University)
"When I first started my internship with ENTITY more than a year ago, I was taking the biggest risk of my life. Fresh out of college, I was floundering, not knowing what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. Everything changed when I started at ENTITY. I didn’t know anyone there. I didn’t know how a magazine worked. But as part of the inaugural editorial team, I knew I was part of something special.
After progressing through the internship and into a full-time job at ENTITY, I got the chance to write, to edit, and to coordinate social media. Just as importantly, I met a group of immensely talented and hard-working women, some of whom would become my closest friends.
When the office centralized in Los Angeles, I moved on. And though my new job was different in many ways, the skills I’d learned from over a year working at ENTITY became essential to my success. I quickly realized that the tools I’d picked up and polished were indispensable to my new career.
The time I spent at ENTITY was defining for me. I met amazing people, learned valuable skills, and launched a career that I love. For those reasons, I will always be thankful that I stumbled upon that internship application more than a year ago."
"Although Entity has given me the opportunity to meet and take a class taught by an award-winning journalist, to watch a private show by the American Contemporary Ballet and to work in a fast-paced startup company launched by two incredible #WomenThatDo, Entity has given me something more valuable. My most memorable moments at Entity are colored with resounding laughter, genuine camaraderie and honest conversations about worries, experiences and aspirations."
"If you would have asked me if I could write 11 articles in one day, my mouth probably would have dropped open and said no way. Entity pushed me and now I am capable of so much more than I expected of myself.Being able to work on a vast amount of material has educated me on topics I wasn't familiar with and has ultimately bettered me as a person."
"Wherever I end up after this phase of my career and life, I know I'll be prepared. Even if I head into another field with little experience, I've learned that it's ok to not know what you're doing at first. Figuring out how to do the best job you can do at work is just as satisfying as actually doing a good job. I feel like wherever I end up, I'll always look back on my time and Entity and say, 'I can handle this.'"
"At Entity I was not only valued for writing but as a mentor who was also being mentored by the other ranks of Entity. Every woman is helping each other no matter their status within the company.”
"Entity provided a space for us to grow and develop as writers as well as women and achievers. Not only did this experience push us, it also led us on a journey that will shape and change who we are as women of the world. It embraced our individuality, and cultivated a sense of purpose and belonging for us in an industry that can be difficult to break into. It celebrated us, championed us, challenged us, and called us into an experience far more valuable than any dollar amount or college unit measurement. Entity taught me so much about what it means to be a good writer, what it means to find integrity and purpose in the everyday, and how knowing yourself is one of the strongest career moves you can make as a woman."
"The Entity mentorship program gave me so much confidence when I went back to college. Before Entity I had never worked for a daily publication. The mentorship program taught me how to take charge and how to be a real leader. It helped me find my specific brand of feminine leadership."
"I couldn’t begin to express how much I have learned and grown as a writer and a person. The way Jennifer Wangers treats her mentees is admirable and awe-inspiring, and having the opportunity to do things like fly an airplane was incomparable."
"Entity taught how to be creative with my writing while maintaining my own personal flair that distinguishes my work from someone else’s. If you look at my writing from the beginning of Entity's mentorship program and read what I’ve been writing recently, it’s impossible to not see a difference and how much it’s changed. My writing is more stylized and it penetrates the heart of the subject matter I discuss. With the help of writing workshop and Jennifer’s mentoring, I was able to define what my writing should read as for an Internet audience, a task that by no means is a piece of cake."
"Entity's mentorship program gave me hands-on journalism experience. I learned how to find common ground with people I didn't know so I could have a conversation and ask questions to get important information."
"Entity was a chance to dip my digital pen into the Internet world to see if I have what it takes to make it in the age of half-alive journalism. After the mentorship program, I feel ready to make my dent. As I transition into the real world, I feel the strength underneath my fingertips as I type job resumes, cover letters and sample submissions. I feel that strength spill itself out on blank paper – or word documents – to materialize into something magical. I may be leaving Entity but I’m taking this strength wherever I go. Because in or out of this magazine's office space, I will always be one of the #WomenThatDo."
