I think I ruined my chances for a great internship
A few weeks ago I applied for a graduate internship position at a place I would really want to work. Plus its a paid internship. They contacted me shortly after, requested an additional writing sample, transcript and a cover letter.
For my writing sample I had a hard time choosing a subject, due to my hard drive on my last laptop dying on me, I lost a lot of the papers I wrote as an undergrad. I pretty much had to choose between a short version of a paper I was writing at the time for one of my graduate courses or a shotened version of a paper I wrote in undergrad for a research course.
I chose the former, only to realize roughly a week later it had a few typos I had somehow missed.
I'm so embarassed and angry over this. I bet I blew my chance of finding an internship/possible job while in grad school in my field.
Why was I so stupid? I should have sent the research paper. **** this. **** it.
