This week it was announced that Kendall and Kylie Jenner were named as West Coast fashion contributors for Teen Vogue. I’m not sure what made them qualify for this except that they wear pretty clothes and look like models. They aren’t exactly interns but close enough. Plus we wouldn’t them to be interns anyway. Here are some other notable young people (some real, some not) we think would be okay to not have running around our office all summer.
This actress just constantly has a look of “I am way too cool for everything.” There is no way she would even have an internship and if she did, all she would do was sit somewhere looking cool, laughing at people working.
Any of the girls from Pretty Little Liars
Those girls are pretty but they may have murdered someone and they are constantly telling lies. Plus they are always on their cell phones. Not ideal for an intern.
She just has the cool factor again and I feel like she is just way too mature for her age. People would think she was running the company.
First of all, we would have to deal with hoards of teenage girls camping outside the office and they would probably just burst into song a lot (I think they have more than one.) But if they wore these suits everyday it would be okay.
Anyone from The Secret Circle
Those kids seem smart enough but if you asked any of them to do something menial, they could actually cast a spell on you.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
First of all, they have the Kardashian work ethic which means they don’t do anything unless there are cameras there and they can make money off it. This means there would be a camera crew following them every time we asked them to make a photocopy of something. The work flow would just not be good. Second, you know they would be the poster children for how not to dress for an internship.
Katniss from The Hunger Games
Oh the mind games this smart girl could use to get ahead. Plus, if you crossed her she may take you down with a bow and arrow.
I just don’t think this girl would do well in an office. She belongs in a meadow writing in her journal.
