A while ago you asked me to do some research on CBO and another topic (what it was escapes me). Yesterday at our meeting with [staffer], I had a heart attack when I learned I probably should have sent you a memo with the information I learned. I’m not sure if you were telling me to do the research for my own benefit or if you actually needed it done but I don’t want you to think I missed a deadline because I really didn’t know how the office worked back then. If you still need to research, I would be more than happy to do it for you and have it in your inbox in a timely manner. Please let me know and I promise im not lazy :/
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!
