I Am The World’s Most Interesting Intern

- June 25, 2010 - 242 Comments

Interns of the world.  Attention.  Greg Justice here, Social Media intern in the Communications department for Cisco Systems. I AM THE WORLD’S MOST INTERESTING INTERN.

Post a video response if you think your internship is more interesting…or if you think you’re better than me.

I’ll be posting weekly right here on and highlighting the best video responses.  Follow me on Twitter @gregjustice.


Cisco Systems intern, California resident,

I just staffed a pretty cool event with the President

Of RUSSIA…day 8 on the job and I just saw the President

Of RUSSIA…maaaan I bet you never ever ever got a chance to see the President of RUSSIA!

Okay, here we go:

I’m courteous and affable, my name badge is retractable

You other interns laughable, your thermos must be half as full.

I’m 6’7” staffable, you can’t find giraffes this tall,

I’m known to play some basketball, or finish office tasks on call.

When I rap I have to win, I’m in the break room back again with

Notebooks, stacks of pens, soundin’ off these acronyms:


VPN, CEO, I’m soundin’ like C-3PO.

2 things that you need to know: I’m always clean and never late,

I’m known to rock a cubicle and show my face on clever tapes

I’m workin on my ThinkPad, sendin’ mail every day,

It’s natural to think that I’m talented in every way.

A blog post, a Twitter tweet, I’m never where the quitters be,

It’s social network wizardry – I’m all about the synergy.

The vuvuzela interests me, and I’ve got the best hair,

3 words that I’ll leave you with: ergonomic desk chair.

(Lyrics: Cisco’s World Most Interesting Intern: Greg Justice)
