The slacker intern rolls into the office... whenever. The slacker intern is the last to volunteer for tasks and the first to complain when assigned a task.
The slacker intern takes long, long lunches -- so long that the other interns wonder what that intern does during lunch: Maybe that intern goes home and takes a nap? Maybe that intern is working another internship in the middle of this one? Maybe that intern is having a lunch-hour fling?
When in the office, the slacker intern only really does one of three things: Read Facebook. GChat friends. Avoid working. As soon as the clock hits 5 p.m., that intern disappears -- so as not to be late to happy hour, where that intern brags about this sweet internship in so-and-so’s office and how great that’s going to look on a resume.
About #THATintern: Every intern class has “that intern” — as in,“Don’t be that intern.” Each day I introduce you to one of them. Share your ideas on Twitter using the hashtag #THATintern.
