Named a 2009 finalist on the annual list of America’s Best Young Entrepreneurs “Twenty-Five U.S. Entrepreneurs Ages 25 and Under” by Bloomberg Businessweek, Lauren Berger is no longer worrying about internships.

Berger is CEO of Intern Queen Inc., an online internship destination that helps students find and apply for internships while educating them on how to make the most of their experiences.            

She will present “Everything Internships with The Intern Queen” on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at SUNY Cortland.

Her talk, at 7 p.m. in Old Main Brown Auditorium, is sponsored by Career Services, the Vice President of Student Affairs Office and the Campus Artist and Lecture Series. It is free and open to the public.  

Berger participated in 15 internships during her four years of college, hence the title “Intern Queen.” She earned a degree in organizational business communications at the University of Central Florida and interned for top-notch companies across the country such as MTV, FOX, BWR Public Relations and NBC.

America Online wrote this about Berger: “If you are going to college and wondering what you are going to do this summer — you need to look her up.” Mobile Youth has placed her in the top 10 Youth Marketing Minds of 2010.

Berger applied her knowledge of the industry to her first job post-college at Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills, Calif. She told everyone at the company of her business ambitions and it caught the eye of Hollywood producer Marshall Herskovitz (“The Last Samurai,” “Blood Diamond,” “Defiance”). Herskovitz invested in her start-up in June 2008.

As CEO of Intern Queen Inc. and national college speaker, Berger works with more than 500 employers located in the U.S. and in Canada. Her website, InternQueen.com, reaches more than 40,000 different students, parents and employers each month. She has connected hundreds of students with the internships of their dreams. Berger has spoken to thousands of high school and college students across the country. She has a weekly advice column with the Washington Post website and has been recently featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, FoxBusiness.com, the New York Post, AOL, Alloy.com, YPulse.com, E!News.com, Yahoo Business, MarieClaire.com, and more.

Berger's new book All Work, No Pay is due for release by Random House in January.
