Ridiculous Things I Did As An Intern

As being an intern is fast becoming a rite of passage and having to do ridiculously menial tasks is part and parcel of said "internship", we've decided to round up your anecdotes and reassure you you're not alone.

From dusting baubles and sewing up dead cats, to sourcing plastic frogs and hunting for conkers, it seems there's no limit to the intern's job specification.

If you've got an anecdote you'd like to add, tweet us @HPUKStudents or email us at and we'll include it.
