Welcome Back: The 2016 DC Summer Intern Season has Commenced!

Happy 2016 Intern Season!  After a hiatus last summer, we're excited to celebrate the beginning of our eighth summer with you.  Welcome back to all our loyal followers and welcome new followers and new interns.  

To our newest interns:  Welcome and congratulations on your summer internship!  We hope you use this opportunity to make a great impression in your office and get the most out of your internship. However, we suggest you heed our warnings and follow our advice. For those of you who do not, we look forward to sharing stories of your drunken evenings, your conspicuously placed pumpkin orange badge on a non-work day (or after work hours), your obnoxious banter on the metro, and your inappropriate clothing choices. 

As always, we value the anonymity of submissions and our team.  We invite you to share stories as you encounter the newest batch of DC Summer Interns.  Especially in this tumultuous election year—we would love to hear your Berntern, Clintern, and Trumptern stories.  

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 associated with being a DC Summer Intern.  

Welcome to DC!
