When I was interviewing for an internship position in the marketing department at the University Press of Kentucky, I was asked, “What do you hope to get out of this internship?” I believe my answer was something along the lines of experience, pure and simple. I wanted to take advantage of every opportunity I could get my hands on, and I wanted to be entirely submerged in my field. As long as I could be involved with books, with reading and writing and creativity, I would be happy. I hadn’t been expecting to get an email later that very same day, letting me know the position was mine if I wanted it—beyond that, I hadn’t expected just how fruitful this internship would become.
