Well, that was exciting...

So, resume packets were due last week for Winter term internships (go here to learn more about my school's co-op program).  The interview requests started coming back this last Monday.  On Monday, the Mass. Dept. of Revenue ("DOR") sent in their interview requests - I was one of them.  I scheduled the interview for yesterday at 1:30.  Went to it, found out the job is PERFECT (more on that in a bit) and felt really pleased with how it went.

Apparently I had a reason to be pleased - they sent in the offer to the school co-op office in time for the evening posting, which was probably posted around 5:00.  So, I have my winter internship all set up at the perfect place and now I don't have to worry about it!

Anyway, here's the reason it's perfect.  The internship is with their litigation bureau.  While working there, I will be handling a few different cases at a time, all of which will be at some pretrial stage.  I'll be helping with a whole range of stuff on these cases - discovery (gathering evidence), writing briefs, and I might even get to help with the actual trial.  So, in other words, I'd really be working on the meat of the litigation process.  Which is what I'm all about.  Yay!

So, now I don't have to worry about that.  I'm happy that the whole process only took two weeks and now it's done and I don't have to think about it any more.

Apparently I do have to get a "tax check" and a background check to work there.  I'm not worried about those.  I was once told that the results of my background check were "boring" because I hadn't done anything wrong...ever.  As for the tax check, well...single people who don't make much money don't have very complicated taxes so I'm not exactly worried there either.  So, anyway, those should go through just fine.

Well, that's most of the news I have for now.  I'm pretty tired, I was out late last night and haven't quite recovered.  Time for bed!
