That intern: The sleepy intern

Jenna Johnson

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.

The sleepy intern is always exhausted and always nodding off in meetings (even super exciting ones involving Power Point presentations). Bags under the eyes, chronic yawning, Red Bull immunity, sleep-deprived mess.

Why is that intern so sleepy? No one seems to know. Maybe that intern is taking a full-load of college courses at night? Or working another full-time job to pay for food? Or partying every single night of the week? Or is addicted to playing video games all night long? Or maybe it's a medical condition?

Want to help me stereotype over-worked, under-appreciated, misunderstood interns? Shoot me an e-mail.
