Top 10 Posts of 2014

Thanks for a fantastic year and for reading, sharing, emailing, chatting and everything else you did to support Intern Like a Rockstar this year. This site started off with the idea of sharing what I wish I'd known when I was trying to intern in the music industry and it's amazing to be able to help people fulfill their dreams. This year we took things offline with a panel at Drexel University and a talked on Skype with new friends at Algonquin College in Canada and had some incredible internship listings from all over the world from London to Los Angeles. Thanks so much for being so amazing and inspiring. Here's a look at the posts you made popular this year.
