Editors Note: Thank you for the positive feedback. If you have personal stories regarding how this blog shaped your life as an intern, please share them!
First, I just want to say that I love this blog and have been following it since I was a wee little intern in DC.
Second, as a past DC intern I just want to say that I learned so much from this blog and what to do or not do as an intern. There are a vast majority of interns who actually go to DC to learn from the people who take us in as interns and appreciate everything they do for us and teach us. However, this blog taught me proper social etiquette and I hope that it continues to inform all those other interns who eagerly want to be a GOOD DC intern!
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!
