Normally I start these “Paul”Casts with the tag line “what I wished I had been told…” but my interview partner in this discussion is fresh out of school and really hasn’t had the opportunity to experience a ton of life yet and be burdened by the weight of “woulda, shoulda, coulda.” But even without years of hindsight to reflect on Micole Kaye from Ultimate Software was a wonderful and fun guest to have on the call. She and I talked about her experience as a political intern and a business intern. I tried to find some political dirt to throw around during this “boring” election cycle but alas she was tight-lipped about her experience.

However, she did spend some time talking about the process of getting an internship (hint: it’s who you know…) and what she really learned during her internship. Another hint – a lot of things!

Take a few minutes (21 to be exact) and listen to Micole and I chat it up. Simply hit the play icon in the embedded player below. Those who receive these posts in an email – click here to go to the site and listen in there.
