Through the course of interning, you learn a lot. Sure, there is the newfound skill set, the importance of being punctual and what not. But those things are only half of it.
There are plenty of things that you learn as an intern that actually have nothing to do with work. Like where to grab the best coffee, how to go to bed before midnight and that hats are a great cover-up for questionably dirty hair. These are vital life skills, people!
