Drive to the 28th Ave Park and Ride garage (free parking), and ride the train downtown. Sounds very convenient to me.

If you are looking for public transit, buses will most likely be better for you than the train. The 535 leaves every 15 minutes during rush hour from a park and ride that is more-or-less at Best Buy HQ. It's a 17-19 minute ride (depending on when you get on) to basically your work.

The light rail would be harder for you to get to, have the same frequency, and take you 31 minutes to get not quite as close to your work (though still plenty close). I think the fare would also be the same ($2.25 in rush hour, $1.50 out of rush hour) since the 535 looks to be classified as "limited stop" instead of "express". The one advantage the light rail has is more frequent service outside of rush hour.

I work downtown and my employer validates parking for interns (they pay for mine too, which is very rare). Have you asked this company about parking? Otherwise, a friend of mine works for the Star Tribune and parks across from the Metrodome for $20/month. Probably about a 5-10 minute walk to the Capella Tower. I used to park in the Rand Tower, and yes, it is a pain to get out of. Now I park in Fifth Street Towers.

Just in case you weren't thinking about this... You could be dripping sweat by the time you get to the office if you walk 10-15 minutes to get there (especially if it isn't in the skyway, but even the skyways can get pretty warm in the summer). It might not be in the 90s yet, but it will be.
