Marc Jacobs Intern Makes A Memorable Exit

25 Mar

If you follow Marc Jacobs International on Twitter you may have noticed some “out of character” tweets that were sure to have you clicking on the profile for more. On the current intern’s last day, the individual decided to tweet it all out making it one of the most memorable exits I have ever witnessed. What makes this most interesting is that Marc Jacobs is currently in the process of their search for an official Marc Jacobs twitter(er), for the lack of a better word. Below is a print screen of the 4 tweets that the intern posted, and of course we had to get our hands on this before it is taken down in the morning.

These tweets are the perfect example of what you do NOT do when you are interning, particularly for such a powerful and influential brand like Marc Jacobs’. We once again learn the lesson of truly thinking of what we say and how we say it before we let it out of our systems. It is evident that this individual was well aware of their actions and had the full intention of making their thoughts public; yet without a doubt they are going to regret this sooner or later.

Many have commented on how this will affect the brand of Marc Jacobs; yet I personally believe that it does not do any damage to the brand at all but teaches them a lesson to be more cautious with who to hire as an intern. As for the intern, these actions have definitely damaged their career, whether she is not working in that town again or not, since Marc Jacobs is an international brand.

This issue comes down to the level of professionalism one must have at their work place since, whether you love it or hate it, you are a representation of that company and brand and the image you present is that of the brand. So let’s remember to keep certain thoughts to ourselves and hope that this tweeting individual does not ask for a letter of recommendation.

With Love,

Christie
