That intern: The printer intern
Every intern class has so many personalities that they could fill a "Real World" cast. And every class has "That Intern" -- as in, "Don't be that intern." Each day I introduce you to one of those interns.
Each summer, some intern gets assigned the desk right next to the printer. That means that, in addition to tackling all of the regular intern assignments, the printer intern also has to become an expert at refilling, troubleshooting and unjamming the machine.
The printer intern knows where the extra paper is stored -- and where to find the secret reserve of paper in the supply closet. The printer intern knows how to change out the toner, cancel jobs and clear a paper jam without losing a finger. The printer intern can also help you switch to using legal-size paper, make double-sided printouts or center a memo on letterhead.
Everyone knows that intern, because everyone uses the printer. But no one really knows the printer intern's name.
