The Real Life Of An Intern

You’ve finally received the email- You landed your dream internship. 

Now it’s time to shop because you don’t own anything you could possibly wear in order to impress these people, right?!

Then you find out the position is… unpaid.

But you quickly get over it because this is the first stepping stone to being rich! You have to start somewhere, right?!

You walk in on the first day like:

But then the first thing your boss says is:

Let the free labor begin!

And a month in you regret taking the job because… unpaid.

You often find yourself hiding in the back, avoiding everyone…

Or pretending you’re actually doing something important…

But when it’s all done and over with, you kind of miss it and feel accomplished. You got through it without messing anything important up! CONGRATS!
