Okay, I'm on the run, but I need to make a decision about which summer job to take. I have two offers so far, and I'm reasonably confident that I'll get the third soon. I hope this doesn't strike you guys as inappropriate, but there are few people I trust to make decisions more than all of you Dean supporters... :P
(Is there an emoticon for sticking out one's tongue at oneself?)
- Intern in Economic Policy at the Center for American Progress. All of you guys know about the center; now they've offered me an internship in my policy area of choice. Yay! Should I take it?
- Assistant at the Columbia Journalism Review. It's a monthly megazine in NYC covering the media. This summer they'll be doing a double feature on the campaign, and assistants there do a good bit of writing, which I love. It's almost entirely editorial. (Note: I won't be working on Campaign Desk.)
- (I haven't actually been offered this, but I'm confident.) Intern at Bill Moyers' NOW program on PBS. Lots of research and production (non-editorial) stuff, though the atmosphere in the office is definitely collaborative. That would be in NYC too.
I've purposefully left out the little "pay" issue, because I want to hear your opinions without that. For the NYC ones, I would live at home or with my relatives in the city. For Washington, do any of you have a spare room?
Unfortunately, I have to run so I can't respond to any of this until late tonight. But I hope you'll give me some input.
