At the end of my message prior to that I had **thanked him for his time** and that is how he replied.
I was looking into his internship program so I asked what it was all about
and he said "We design the internship program around each applicant."
I know a lot about non-profits (worked in that industry for 8 years) so
that response wasn't the level or organization I was looking for. I
merely responded with a "thanks but no thanks" and mentioned I was looking for something a little more structured.He also told me "I am going to guess you're not from around here, and if so, may I suggest
you consider another town for your internship?"
And then "I also would suggest going more, erm, corporate...If you want a boring 9-5 corporate experience, go work for Worldcom or
Enron or Microsoft."
I was apalled! I am from Portland.
Anyway, this all seems VERY rude and I wouldn't trust his company!
