I think they got a bargain. A company which was in financial trouble let a kid come in for two weeks as an intern. He took a look at their business, immediately set up a web site for them to sell their product, and they promptly received an order for 70,000 pounds through that web site. It appears it will save their company.

Next, they plan to hire an intern to revamp the horse-and-buggy delivery system.

suddenly my 'streamlined procedures for in-house snacks, reducing costs by 5%, while providing better availability,' blurb on the resume doesn't seem quite as impressive.

Probably a good thing to have on this kid's resume....single handedly saving a company

"So what'd you do in high school?"
"I was co-editor of the yearbook, you?"
