Internship (n): a 3-month rite of passage in which individuals at the bottom of the professional food chain strive to “prove themselves” while not looking completely lost
If you are or have ever been an intern, you’ll relate to every one of these internship feels.
Hearing another intern complain but secretly it makes you happy because you know they’ll never make it
Greeting a co-worker whose name you don’t know, and having to point and call them “you”
Running like a crazy person to make it on time because your train was delayed…again
Being assigned to a special project your peers didn’t get
When you start your first internship and you can’t believe anyone has left you in charge
Walk out of the office feeling accomplished like
When your friends are still talking about classes but you’re focused on an actual job
When your friends ask if you want to go out on a Wednesday
When you hear another intern complaining or gossiping
Waiting for everyone to leave the kitchen so you can hoard the free snacks
When you finally learn how to use excel and impress your boss by doing a mail merge
Trying to eavesdrop on conversations between the higher-ups
When you and your boss like to talk about the same weird tv shows during team lunch
Me: Of course I know how to use Excel!
Trying to stay awake in class because you’ve been prioritizing your internship
When you get to join in on the office perks
When someone that’s not your boss tries to get you to do a coffee run for them
