There’s nothing like scrolling through intern resumes to remind me that I’m a rare beast.
I’d really like to get an intern for this summer that is like me. Heck, I’m looking for a replacement me to some extent. That being, someone with technical skills and an ability to understand technical concepts but with an interest in business and marketing. Ideally, I want a dual major MBA and Engineering grad. Someone like that could start in my job and quickly move on to bigger/better things. But no luck. I’m either going to end up with a full-on engineer that will be bored or a full-on business-er (for lack of a better term) who may be willing to do the work but not knowledgeable about the stuff needed to find better ways to do it.
