Umbria, Yoga and Thai Food: Interning at Conde Nast Johansens

Throughout January I was lucky enough to be offered a three week internship (work experience) at Conde Nast Johansens in London. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Johansens and learnt a massive amount about the company, their clients, the hotels, social media and digital marketing.

I was also given the chance to write a few articles whilst I was interning which were then posted on the ‘inspirations’ section of the website. Below I decided to link the articles to my own blog incase any of my followers wanted to see what I had been up to over the past few weeks!

I am extremely gratetful for Johansens for giving me this opportunity and it is one I will cherish.
