These are the interns in MPR’s Digital Media Department, learning a valuable lesson in only their second week on the job: It’s harder to look pensive than it is to be pensive. But it’s a skill that must be mastered if one is to rise in the American workplace.
Debunking the myth that we pile onto interns, those jobs we don’t like doing ourselves, we have given to Rachel Wilensky and David McVeety (students at St. Paul Academy) the responsibility of putting together this week’s News Cut Quiz. We have given them only this guidance: “Make it hard, don’t make it impossible, and make people assume the fetal position when they’re done with it.”
Let’s see how they did this week by seeing how you do.
