I am struggling with the correct tense for the following sentence:
Some of you might know me already as I was interning for six months at this company earlier this year.
Since "earlier this year" refers to a specific point in the past, past tense comes to mind. However, "for six months" indicates a longer-lasting activity, requiring the progressive form of the past tense. Is my train of thought correct or do I need to use another tense for this sentence?
