A personal intern:
This past work week involved 11-12 hour days from the time I left the apartment to the time I got home. I was so swamped when I was at work that I barely had enough time to run to the water cooler (OK, I admit, I did manage to sneak out to the gym at lunch four times, but that's it). I definitely didn't have time to pick up a very necessary box of contact lenses or to return a purchase, and there was definitely not enough time to try to fit in any work on my sideline business. So, I think it may be time to get my own personal intern. I would willingly give she/he college credit for checking and responding to emails, faxing in requests for price quotes for materials for my dog beds, returning phone calls, as well as refilling my water glass at work and running important errands (like to the brand new Union Square Trader Joe's to get organic raisins and veggie gyoza).
It would definitely be no worse than most internships and I've been told I'm a great boss. Any interested parties out there willing to work for nonexistent pay?
