One of the most eventful part in an intern's day is lunch hour. The hour where interns are free to roam the city (if they know where they’re going), sample the cities cuisine (for example, street hotdogs) and do whatever it is their little intern hearts desire (read, most likely). It’s an hour that we have all to ourselves and everyone uses it differently.
What commutes by train and usually has a book (or three) in her bag? --- a intern, of course! Or, more specifically, this intern. Students all over America get internships each summer and luckily, this year I’m one of them! Internships get your feet wet. They provide an inside look into a career that a job description can’t. Plus, they’re kind of fun, too. While I’m finding that my internship is connecting me with great books and authors, it’s also providing me with some new life skills.
