We all know someone from our internships who has earned the title of "The Sluggish Intern". I put together a few points so that you can make sure you are NOT earning this title for yourself at the internship. Here you go:
1. The Sluggish Intern wears flip-flops to the internship.
2. The Sluggish Intern shows up wearing jeans with holes (even if they are designer).
3. The Sluggish Intern hasn't showered in a good 36 hours.
4. The Sluggish Intern hasn't combed his/her hair in a few days. They hope people don't notice.
Today I got an email from one of my amazing Intern Queen Campus Ambassadors, Joanna, who attends Texas A&M. She mentioned that she was reading my book (All Work, No Pay) and decided she was going to start her social media cleanse before applying for an internship this summer. A Social Media Cleanse? How catchy!
I've always wanted to have my own book club. Today, is the exciting launch of my new Intern Queen Book Club on the Copia platform. Every 6 weeks, I'll cover a new title, post a ton of great discussion forums, and do a live chat. Please follow along with us as we cover some great titles in business, careers, and entrepreneurship!
