Homeless Tales: Elle Magazine offers an internship to homeless blogger

Homeless Tales reports that one of its US bloggers, Bri, has been offered a four month internship at Elle magazine, with columnist E.Jean Carroll.

It came about after Bri wrote into Elle, after failing a screen test for a reality TV show offering an internship with the publication.

An extract (full letters on Elle.com)

Dear E. Jean: I’m currently homeless and living in a Wal-Mart parking lot. I’m educated, I have never done drugs, and I am not mentally ill. I have a strong employment history and am a career executive assistant. The instability sucks, but I’m rocking it as best as I can.


My question: How does one get another shot when one screws up a job interview? —Homeless, but Not Hopeless

And an extract from E.Jean’s reply:

“You knocked me out with your courage and spirit. I am therefore, Miss Not Hopeless, offering you a four-month internship. Of course it’s the most hideously humdrum internship in America. (…) At the end of the four months, if you don’t have a job and an awesome place to live, I will become your intern.”
