Interns tweet along as summer winds down

Jenna Johnson

This week on Twitter there were lots and lots of interns counting down the days to the end of their internships, thanking co-workers for final lunches and explaining how excited they are to go back to school. In many cases, employers seemed just as excited.

Happy Follow Friday!
