Every summer (or offseason), thousands of Princetonians fan out across the globe to complete unpaid internships.
The competition can be fierce, so you have to put your best foot forward. One would think that a 3.8 GPA, 1520 SAT score and ORFE degree might just get the job done, no?
Now add your 95-mph fastball into the mix.
That's the resume that Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Ross Ohlendorf '05 sent to the U.S. Department of Agriculture when he applied for an unpaid 10-week internship, where he logs 20 hours a week behind his desk at the department's D.C. headquarters.
ABC News produced a package earlier this week on Ohlendorf's internship, which began in October. ABC's reporter? Fellow Princetonian (and former 'Prince' editor-in-chief) Rick Klein '98.
