Yes, I did indeed have a “document imaging” internship over one summer. I had gotten the job through an internship community that would find tech-related jobs for minorities in the field, and I had wanted to stay closer to home so this job it was.
When they were first describing the job it sounded pretty interesting.
“We had a problem of converting these physical records into digital ones.”
“Oh? Did you need help writing some software?”
*shifty glances* “Nooo, that’s already written…”
“Oh, I see.”
“Yeah, we need someone to scan those documents into the system using the scanning software.”
“Oh. I see.“
It still paid like 12 dollars an hour and I got to go on a few tours of the facilities, so it wasn’t as much as a letdown as it could’ve been.
