Fools Insist On Dead End Hollywood And NY Media Internships

Willing slave laborers: A sliver of the Millenials is determined to throw themselves at companies that do not need them.

The intern glass ceiling isn’t limited to Hollywood. Tenneh Ogbemudia, 23, who aspires to be a record executive, has had four internships at various New York media companies, including Source magazine and Universal Music Group.

These sick kids are addicted to the idea of working in mass media. Maybe deep down they think mass media control the minds of everyone else and they want to be one of the controllers rather than one of the controllees.

Lea won't reveal her last name because she doesn't want to jeopardize her next chance for a dead end low paid job or no paid internship. How she's managed to waste her time so far.

So far, her résumé has been limited to three internships — planning events for teenagers at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, compiling news clippings for a public relations agency in New York, and being the “fetch-the-coffee girl” at an art gallery.

I bet they could get jobs with a North Dakota oil exploration company or even with a company that installs wind farms in plains states. But no. Not good enough for them.

Anymore, people who do anything even remotely artistic or creative get a huge status boost over people who just pay the bills. It's an easy way to get ahead in the social rat race without needing a lot of money.

It's too bad some of these kids got it in their head they needed to forsake everything else.

Bwahaha! What do you mean maybe? And deep down?

Daddy needs to grow a pair and pull the plug on Lea's credit card. Man up, Pops! Tell her to (a) get a real job, or (b) marry a man who she can take care of and earn her keep that way.
