A green card?

Um, haven't you ever heard of NAFTA or the FTA? You don't need a green card if you're a Canadian citizen who's a professional working in the US.

Check with the local Canadian consulate.

P.S.: Ask them about holiday dual ski and wedding packages while you're there, nothing like dropping some tourist dollars and getting a nice same-sex marriage, and the Canadian dollar is way cheaper than the Euro.

Your friend Steve is clearly a retard.

Anyone stupid enough to move away from Canada to this godforesaken banana republic is obviously too brain damaged to work in IT.

Public Intern cracks me up, and it's an idea such as a public intern that keeps me reading The Stranger way beyond the time when I was in its target group.

He's The Stranger's own funny, helpful, cute What-Me Worry? kid.

Oh, poor, poor Public Intern. In the year of partying between college and grad school, I did distribution jobs, jobs in which you hand out flyers or free samples, and those jobs were the lowest of low among the jobs at the temp agency that employed me.

On the bright side, on the day we gave away thousands of boxes of Tic-Tacs outside Safeco Field, the fans got pissed and hurled them onto the field.

Slog commenters are bastards.

You people need to lighten the fuck up and stop being so argumentative to *EVERYTHING*.

public intern, you are straight up adorable!

@ 5,

I'll second your sentiment, thank you. And that goes double for Freaky Friday.

You're doing a fantastic job, Steven. Rock on : )

Fifth and Olympic? The Bank of America tower is on 5th and Cherry and 5th and Columbia.

Good looking out for your friend intern. He should apply with the city, county or state. They have huge IT/IS departments.

Did your friend show you his Nobel?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | October 19, 2007 11:28 AM

I love the public intern!

@7 - Original Andrew is still pissed because everyone made fun of his dog.

Back to topic ...

Aren't there a gazillion IT jobs? It wouldn't be as fun for the Public Intern or the Slog, but Nobel guy should get his ass off of 5th Ave and on to Craigslist.

I love the Public Intern. And I loved Original Andrew's dog.

It's always a good day when we have a story by and pics of the Public Intern.

Will Know-it-all,
The temporary TN visa does not apply to all IT jobs. See, for example, the table on this web page.

Maybe he can get a job impersonating Al Gore.

(I love you too, Steven! Keep on truckin'.)

What a loser.

What's the deal with Original Andrew's dog? I must have missed it

Posted by Lake | October 19, 2007 2:01 PM

Original Andrew's Dog Slog

Clearly, he was expecting comments like @4 ...

AAAWWWW!!! Wook at de widdle puppy dawg hed!

But, since this is Slog, he got @1,2,3,5,7,8,11,13, etc (see for yourself)

Posted by Mahtli69 | October 19, 2007 3:20 PM

Hehe, thanks for digging that out for me Mahtli (18)


(but otherwise I usually like Orig. Andrew)

Posted by Lake | October 19, 2007 4:34 PM

Oh please! Try finding a job in Seattle that's not IT specialist. That pays more than 25K?

Posted by anna | October 19, 2007 4:35 PM

I still heart the public intern. When are you coming down to Portland???? I'm trying to steal you away from seattle, but i'm not having good luck! we have a pullout couch you can sleep on, but that might be too weird, so maybe the stranger could spring for a nice stay in a topnotch hotel downtown! actually i don't even live in portland...anyway, you are welcome any time!
