A couple of managers in my group conspired to have a client send them a legitimate- looking email about the IRS needing some information on the dimensions of the park next door to the office, as the company owned the park. Cue the interns heading outside with a tape measure. (Personally...I would've just gone along with it just for the fresh air."

On the last day when the interns got their offer we had a little celebration in one of the conference rooms and the interns had to say what the most exciting part was and one intern proceeded to talk about fraud they found on the engagement in front of all the partners..the room was shook with embarrassment

Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs. I’m not making a livable wage & I’ve undercut my soul, free time, and financial stability with no end in sight. My teammates always really appreciate my hustle and insights. It makes me wonder what else I could possibly do. Put on more make up? Start poppin adderal? I’m joking... but what would you do?

I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well.

TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?
