Are you ready to change your life and never look back? Earn professional experience and learn the true meaning of competitive advantage.
Minneapolis, MN | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was fortunate enough to network with top industry professionals and budding professionals that worked at similar internships all across the country. Many became close friends, and others will always be great connections.


Downers

The only con was that I had to spend time cycling through different departments in order to have a holistic understanding of how a news station works. At the time I would have preferred to just stay in the news department every day, but I now understand the value in my different experiences.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take initiative. It's the most important thing you can do to show management how much you value your job and how dedicated you are to your career. Sometimes it can be a little scary or nerve-wracking, but if you can successfully think out of the box and take on tasks that were not assigned to you, you can make everyone's job easier and make a long-lasting, if not permanent, mark on the company and your co-workers.

Being able to grow within one company; I stayed for 4 years and was able to experience all the different departments. I also developed an extensive network through my peers who were in EBF and working for other companies.


Downers

Very hard to think of something I didn't like about EBF.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take full advantage of ALL the resources EBF gives you. They provide you the tools and all you need to do is take it and run with it. You'll be able to do anything you want after graduating from EBF.

I was allowed to work essentially like a full-time employee, where my duties were important and my input was held with a very high weight.

I was asked to do a lot, but I hardly consider this a negative.
