#THATintern: The ‘What dress code?’ intern

Everyone else is wearing suits and ties, pencil skirts and button-downs, while that intern is in jeans. Or flip-flops. Or anything too-tight, too-short, too-low-cut, too-casual.

#THATintern: The overdressed intern

That intern is by far the best-dressed person in the entire building. It’s a look that just doesn’t match up with the lowly (or nonexistent) intern wages.

#THATintern: The magical badge intern

It’s not just a gray Hill badge. Not just a press pass. Not just an identification card. No, it’s a magical piece of plastic that gets that intern into so many amazing places.

#THATintern: The super shy intern

Almost all interns start off a little shy (and that’s not a bad thing). But that intern is so painfully quiet and overly bashful that the summer passes with few words being spoken.

#THATintern: The gossip intern

Talking to the gossip intern — or exchanging e-mails, texts or Facebook messages — is like reading TMZ or an office version of Page Six. Or watching an episode of Gossip Girl.

#THATintern: The sleepy intern

That intern is always exhausted and always nodding off in meetings (even super exciting ones involving Power Point presentations). Bags under the eyes. Chronic yawning. Red Bull immunity. A sleep-deprived mess.
