Don’t hire me to type

Elizabeth Warren, United States senator, once was a law school student applying for an internship with a Wall Street law firm.

During an interview, one of the firm’s partners leaned back in his chair, scowled at her resume and looked up at her with barely concealed contempt. “There’s a typographical error on your resume,” he said. “Should I take that as a sign of the quality of the work you do?”

Warren didn’t flinch, she reports in her new book A Fighting Chance. “You should take it as a sign that you’d better not hire me to type,” she said.

The partner leaned back and laughed. “You’ll do just fine,” he said.
