Summer Internship 08 [#permalink] New post 13 Jun 2008, 10:04
Is this the first week of summer internships?

I see a lot of young professionals in suits looking confused in the streets, carrying Pierce & Pierce duffel bags with name tags that read, "Joe Schmo - Dartmouth."

They're too old to be analysts.

Stop one of them and say this with authority "Hey! The CFO's been looking for you. You'd better get back and see what's going on!"

{Just an evil idea. I'm not sure I'd actually do it myself.}

True, we (hopefully) will be in that situation. But at the same time, we don't have to look as out-of-place as we actually are. Hasn't anyone here ever faked their way through something?

I made up a book in the 8th grade so I could give an oral book report or I would have gotten in trouble. Best experience in my life. I learned 1) I am actually pretty good at telling a story, maybe I should be an author and 2) Be more prepared. My heart was pounding the entire time thinking the teacher would figure it out. Especially since a girl in the class knew I made it up and kept asking questions about the story!!!

That sounds like an ethical dilemma. You should write an essay about how you failed to make the ethical decision... :wink:

I was 14. The ethical dilemma in my mind was "Make this up and get a grade, or explain to my mother why I failed for weeks to do a book report I had known was coming due. If you knew my mother, you'd understand it wasn't much of a difficult decision ;)
