Today I was voluntold that I would be on the interview board to choose the next intern or interns our office would be getting this coming summer. This falls under the description of “other duties as assigned.” Am I happy I have to do this task? Not really. But there are some other tasks that I have seen assigned that are so much worse than this. Holiday party planner? No thanks. Collector for charity donations? I’ll pass.
So this, while not a fun task, will not be the worst assignment I could have had force upon me. But it did get me thinking. I have never been on an interviewing board, so this is going to be an experience. I have also never sat in front of a board, being asked the questions. They really could not have asked for a more inexperienced person to sit on this board.
Oh well… those poor souls have no idea what they are in for.
