Ben: I'm Ben Whittaker. I received an e-mail about an interview for the senior intern program.

Receptionist: Hey, Ben. How's it going?

Ben: It's going good, real good.

Receptionist: Thank you.

Ben: Excellent.

Receptionist: Take a seat around the corner, and someone from talent acquisition will come get you.

Ben: Thank you. Talent acquisition?



Woman 1: There's going to be a couple of interviews today, Ben. We want to make sure that we both find the right fit. Business as usual is not really our motto, So we hope you have some fun here. This is the first time we're hiring senior interns, so some of our intern questions may not exactly fit your profile, but we're gonna go for it anyway, okay?

Ben: Fire away.

Woman 1: Okay, good. Where'd you go to school?

Ben: I went to Northwestern.

Woman 1: Hey, my brother went to Northwestern.

Ben: Probably not at the same time.

Woman 1: Probably not. He graduated in 2009.

Ben: Class of '65.

Woman 1: Wow, what was your major? Do you remember?



Woman 2: And after Northwestern you went on to...?

Ben: I went to work for Dex One. I was in charge of overseeing the printing of the physical phonebook. I did that for over 20 years, and before that, I was their V.P. of sales and advertising.

Woman 2: So, do they still make phonebooks? I mean, doesn't everyone just Google numbers?

Ben: I believe they do, but before Google that was how you got a number.

Woman 2: Oh, no, no. Yeah, I... I get it.



Justin: So 40 years at the phonebook company? That is amazing, seriously. Okay, Benjamin. Now, I'm gonna ask you one of our more telling questions for all of our interns, so I want you to, like, this is the one to really think about, okay? And... And take your time. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Ben: When I'm 80?

Justin: Yeah, sure. Yeah, whatever. Um... wait. Did not realize you were 70. That's, uh... That question just doesn't work for you, does it? Should we just scratch that one and just move on?

Ben: It's your call, Justin.

Justin: You look great, by the way. So great. And you're clearly more than qualified for this job. You're actually, like, way overqualified, and we were so impressed. You had great interviews, great video. You nailed it, Ben. Congrats. You're an intern.
