What is an Intern Really?

What is an Intern Really?

Let me preface today’s post by saying this will be the most interesting blog ever written by a group of interns at an office supply company.

Collectively we’re a handsome, clever, intellectual bunch.  Our sales tactics are smoother than a Uni-ball Signo pen gliding gracefully across a pure white gloss, 8.5 X 11” piece of Mohawk copy paper and we ALWAYS make the sale.  Okay, maybe not quite.  In all seriousness though, we are a group college kids who were given the opportunity to intern at a company called Innovative Office Solutions in Burnsville, Minnesota.  Our ultimate goal for the summer is to learn more about the sales world and generate some business for our company along the way.  Let’s meet the interns.
