You didn't even know such a team existed.
As soon as the softball intern starts work, the office team starts winning and that intern becomes a minor celebrity. All of the other interns are convinced that intern was only hired because of athletic ability — and, therefore, might have the best shot at being hired.
That intern snickers with co-workers about cheers they wrote on the top-secret softball e-mail listserv. Every Wednesday, the softball team members and their star intern wear their jerseys to the office, go out for a 90-minute lunch to discuss strategy and leave work early to pre-game at the bar.
The other interns are invited to attend the games and watch, but politely decline in favor of gathering at a different bar to complain about how jealous they are of that intern.
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. And check out our Intern City page, too.
