Hallejuah, Praise The Lord -- apparently He *does* exist; as do hiring managers
that think the above. One thing I *might* add is that sometimes you have
MediumSized Inc., which has a lot of work but just enough principals and very
few interns so that the intern gets handed pretty substantive "work" on a
pretty big number/wide variety of substantial projects. I like to think I have
been there -- as the intern. Was at's Boston offices for 6.5
months and when I got there there were two full-time writers and me; when I
left there were four and me *doing the same work*.
