Summer of the intern

My place of work is about to have new life breathed into it. Why you ask? Ah yes, let me explain. You see... the creative interns have arrived!

When I started my career, I was a copywriter intern. And now, I get to guide and mentor a fellow writer as they begin their career in the ad biz. It's quite nice having that kind of a leadership role. I feel all important and stuff. And it's equally as nice having a fresh brain on hand, all eager and ready to go with fabulous new creative thoughts.

And, even though my hubster is sure that mentoring the interns will involve me making demands such as "Get me a latte, and make sure it's extra-hot!!!", I'm actually really excited about making sure they get an incredible experience here.

This means they'll be brainstorming, getting in on briefs, doing jobs on their own... all from day 1. When they leave here, they will be lean-mean-creative machines.

I only wish we had the opportunity to hire them on after their internship is over. I already want to nurture these guys. I want to see them flourish and do well and start their careers right away and become big and important and happy and so on and so forth. (Getting ahead of myself a bit).

But yeah... I really think it's going to be a great summer.
