via Daily Prompt: Apprentice

Public Domain,

Once upon a time, you learned a trade, the one that once upon a time would last you your lifetime, by standing beside a master. Those times are gone, but we still apprentice ourselves.

We intern for the summer in the hopes that XSZ Corp. will hire us in the fall after graduation. Apprenticeships are about learning how the world of work operates and how we can work with that world.
