I want to be a book editor in New York City at Harperteen Publishers.

Context: I am a student who is about to start a degree in Public Relations and minor in Creative Writing. I have researched a bit, and I have found that most people say the type of degree doesn't matter, I just need a bachelor's degree. I have always enjoyed reading, and I especially like reading well written books with substantial plot lines and well developed characters. I feel that there is so much that an individual can learn about the real world while exploring the fictional worlds that have been created.
College: Right now I am in the process of transferring schools. I am applying to Utah Valley University and Brigham Young University. They are both great schools and are affordable for me. I know that most of the jobs would be located East of the Mississippi river, I just can't afford to go to school back east.
Other Education: I don't know what other training I would need besides a bachelor's degree. All I have been able to find is get a bachelors degree and network your way into the industry.
Activities: As I am going to school, I will be working part time. I often spend time volunteering in my place of worship and helping others in the congregation. I also spend a considerable amount of time reading (I am always on the search for great books!). I hope to do a study abroad soon.
Job Experience: I don't have any direct experience with this field of work, but am looking for internships and other ways to gain that experience.
Soft Skills: I am a friendly and optimistic individual who enjoys creating meaningful relationships with others.
Hard Skills: Social Media Marketing Certificate: April 2018 58 WPM Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher
Other: N/A

Should I apply for unpaid internships?

I have bills to pay, but internships seem to be the way to get work experience and most of those are unpaid. #starvingstudent #finance #budgeting...
