D.C. isn't just the nation's capital. If we leave it up to NYC DevShop, it'll be the next startup capital. Move over, Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley. What will D.C.'s startup nickname be?
Welcome to Our Fall 2014 Interns!
Ahhh, fall. One of my favorite times of year. The hot summer days fall into peaceful, crisp fall nights with s’mores cooked on the campfire and plenty of college football. At eZanga, fall also ushers in a few new interns, eager to gain creditable work experience in a field they're grooming themselves for.
Our summer interns have flown the coop, leaving empty desks for a few new faces to grace the eZanga office. They’ll have some big shoes to fill, but we’re confident Steven, Brooke and Caroline, our latest interns, will surely succeed.
I could give Brooke and Caroline the same advice I gave to our summer interns, and while it’s still valid and important, that’s advice for the end of their internship. I have a few more nuggets of knowledge for the beginning, too.
Intern Manifesto: What Sam's Internship Was Like
It’s been a rollercoaster ride of a summer for me at eZanga, and the best way for me to explain it would have to be with lyrics from Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure. Sometimes, you just feel the pressure of feeling like a real employee here.
With any new experience comes goods times and struggles. Developing a lighter tone when writing, rather than the news-y tone that I’m more used to, has been my biggest challenge this summer and honestly, it’s probably something that I will still be working on. Not to mention all the research, deadlines, and edits. How did I ever survive!? It may take some time to recover.
Now, I would not call myself a lucky person by any means, in fact, I’m pretty sure there’s a dark cloud that follows me around. Don’t get too close, or you might catch it. But I would have to say that I’m very lucky to have found this internship!
eZanga Wing Bowl 2014
It’s no secret we love to eat hard at eZanga, and we’re all competitive sports fans. So how does eZanga celebrate the official start to pro football season? By bringing back eZanga’s Wing Bowl, of course! This year’s match-up: the Fowl Mouths vs. the Wing Men.
Bazinga! A Prank-Filled Send-Off for the Interns
It’s no secret that we love a good prank war here at eZanga, and when our interns casually mentioned that they hadn’t been pranked yet, their voices filled with hope, we knew it was ON! Whether it was a classic frogging, the much-coveted balloon pit, or a cringeworthy Bieber man-cave, these interns totally got pwned.
