That intern: The still-an-intern 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.
The summer has ended. All of the interns have packed up their stuff and returned to their college campuses. But that one intern who graduated this spring is still here -- no one is really sure for how long or in what capacity. Frankly, maybe no one told that intern to stop showing up.
The still-an-intern intern would love to have a full-time job and enjoy the simple pleasures of health insurance, vacation leave and a 401k. But those jobs seem to be few and far between these days, so that intern just keeps interning -- and interning and interning and interning. When will it end? No one really knows.
And, sadly, I think this will be the last time this summer I stereotype over-worked, under-appreciated, misunderstood interns. It has been a lot of fun -- and I hope that you enjoyed them. Make sure to check out the archive for any you missed.
