Oh, and while I get giving the intern the grunt work – if that’s all she was doing then whomever was leading the program failed miserably. I have had interns and I put them to work doing actual work. I have a woman now that is in school and is part of our apprentice program. I sit with her and I go through the business reasons why we’re doing what we’re doing. I give her the background and help her understand how to improve what she’s doing and give her context that helps her refine her work, apply it to her classes and use it on her next role (or job). That’s part of my job – making sure the next generation is ready to kick ass and take names.
