Every year, we like to hire a couple new interns here at theCHIVE to mix things up a little bit. I always ask our employees first if they have anybody in mind. This year, when I asked for referrals, everybody sent me the same name: Harpal.
For months, we’ve had one iCHIVE user that everybody that our office is oddly fascinated with. Harpal Singh Jadon. They’ve nicknamed him Lieutenant Weinberg for reasons I can’t explain. Harpal’s from India and has been submitting photos of himself for a while… a lot of photos.
Granted, we don’t know if he even speaks English. Based on his submissions, I can’t presume to know if he even knows how to use a computer. And I don’t really know where he lives either, I’m sure some of you recognize the landmarks and might be able to help us out in the comments.
Most of you are probably thinking, “Why on earth would you hire a guy from a foreign country who may or may not speak English?”
Whether we contact him or not is up for you to decide. But here’s my reasons for bringing Harpal across the pond.
