Been there, done that
Late last week, the streaming service HBO Max accidentally sent a test email to its mailing list. The company tweeted an apology and, in response to a flurry of jokes, confirmed it was an intern who caused the mix-up.
We mistakenly sent out an empty test email to a portion of our HBO Max mailing list this evening. We apologize for the inconvenience, and as the jokes pile in, yes, it was the intern. No, really. And we’re helping them through it. ??

Twitter users started sharing their own career mistakes, starting off each post with “Dear intern.” There were unfortunate typos. Inside jokes shared with the entire company. Budgetary mishaps. Words of wisdom. It was one of those nice occurrences when the internet gets together to have a real human moment: Admit we all mess up, make a few jokes and keep moving forward.
We’ve all had those days and, no matter where you are in your career and where you want to be, it’s nice to grant yourself a bit of grace. A professional journey is a human one, so there will be ups and downs, mistakes and wins. And TWIJ will always be waiting here for you in your inbox.
