Avid reader of your blog, and at first as funny as it was I thought you were just a bitter staffer. As a graduate student and 2nd summer DC intern for a industry trade group I spend some time in hearings in the Senate/House.
I cannot believe the level of immaturity and lack of basic manners displayed by the Hill interns, perhaps being in a large group hearkens the interns back to middle school days but still this is no excuse. Keep up the good work!
This blog is dedicated to those DC residents who eagerly await (or completely dread) DC Summer Intern Season. Essential to the function of most offices in DC, interns are willing to complete tasks that are often considered undesirable.
For many interns, this blog will not apply. For those interns to whom it does apply, we hope that you use these anecdotes to change your behavior and eventually change the stigma attached to DC interns.
PLEASE NOTE: While many offices are understandably concerned about anonymity, please be assured that we will never post identifying information (including, but not limited to, place of work or residence, name, or congressional office).
We welcome you to submit any and all absurd intern stories you are bound to experience this summer.
TWITTER EXCEPTION: We assume you give us permission to re-tweet any submissions you send our way via your public Twitter account.
To the interns: Please use this blog as a learning tool. Godspeed and best of luck this summer!
