Twitter tales of intern woes, employer gripes

Jenna Johnson

A favorite part of my day is searching for "intern" or "internship" on Twitter. There are cute tweets, hilarious tweets -- and some that make me want to shout, "Don't you guys know these are public!?"

Last week I shared a bunch of these tweets with you -- and here's another set. (And there are many more that I wish I could share, but cannot on a family-friend website.)

Happy Follow Friday!
