This week, Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan posted about “The (Potential) Intern from Hell.” It was one of the most popular posts among Gen Y tweeters as I saw it spread around my Twitter feed like wildfire. Even as I’m writing this post, I asked my Twitter followers for the link to the Gawker post and they responded in less than 30 seconds.
So, what makes this post such a favorite among the Gen Y community? Many cannot believe how unbelievably brazen and audacious this job seeker was in his e-mails. After reading the potential intern’s correspondence again, I am also taken aback. With such a difficult climate to obtain a job, how could this individual be so bold and inappropriate?
