Christine Elia, Closet Couture

Interns produce much of the content on Closet Couture, the fashion site founded by Christine Elia. Her interns are paid only stipends, but Elia, the company's chief executive officer, says she tries hard to make the jobs worth their while. For example, internships include such perks as attendance at exclusive New York Fashion Week events.

"You can get exceptional talent if you're offering something pretty sexy," Elia says. "It's not just me taking advantage of them," she says. "I make sure there is something special and unique that [bolsters] their resumes."
