An Awarding Experience Guaranteeing Four Years: Summer Internship and Exposure to Different Departments at a Well-Known Media Company
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The company of my internship really fosters building relationships with other departments and make all the interns feel welcomed. They organized brown bag lunches with all the interns and other events with speakers from different departments.


Downers

I'm not sure if I like cubicle spaces.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want an organization that cares for you, then this place is for you.


Sample Interview Questions

What news do you keep up with?

What are you passionate about?

What after school activities do you do?

What are you plans at college?


Advice to Management

I don't like how the match funds work. The check is sent to the school, even if you buy books or pay for a loan.

Looking 120% More Impressive Than I Actually Am While Working Hard, Playing Hard
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The perks of working at such a fun and interesting company; getting an almost guaranteed four years of working experience; organizational structure that guides you straight to success


Downers

Very extensive application process; stuck in this internship for four years and don't get to try other jobs, have other experiences


Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to be in a workplace where everyone has more education, work experience, and life experience, because this program starts either senior year of high school or freshman year of college, so you're literally the bottom of the food chain. The need to prove your worth is immense.


Sample Interview Questions

What kinds of leadership experiences have you had, and what have you learned from them?

Why are you interested in this position?

If you were on a desert island, which three items would you bring?

How do you overcome obstacles in your work and life?


Advice to Management

The 1:1 scholarship match is great, but the end total puts you behind other interns working in the same position, so if these numbers could be adjusted, then this would greatly benefit students trying to get by with slightly-higher-than-minimum wage.

AMAZING. It was unique because you grow with the company through high school/college, so once you graduate you have 4 years in corporate
Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Paid internship with matching funds scholarship. Additionally the ability to meet other peers each summer at conference. I have relationships with my peers from the program to this day. I have gotten my jobs at CBS Radio NYC, MTV Networks and HBO from my relationships through the Emma Bowen Foundation. The internship directly effected my career trajectory.


Downers

I didnt find out sooner! I would've applied sooner than my senior year of high school! Some people got into the program as high school juniors.


Advice to Potential Interns

It's changed my life! Every part of my career has been positively effected by the internship. I've worked at 3 of the top media companies since i graduated from the program.


Sample Interview Questions

I was recruited 10 years ago, but we were asked questions about our 10 year plan, our passions for media, our community involvement, grades, etc. We required 3 references, transcripts and several other materials. It's a very competitive internship.


Advice to Management

They have been active with alums as well. I still work with them on improving the internship to this day.

The best internship experience I could've hoped for
Jacksonville, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the hands on experience that set me ahead of other students in my same major, building relationships and finding mentors within a field you are already passionate about, and also building relationships with peers across the country who help share their interning experiences to help everyone grow and expand on their own.


Downers

There isn't really a lot of negative things I can say about the internship--really, the only thing was during those summer conferences with interns from across the country--some had access to better experiences and company "perks" (ie. attending olympics, visiting foreign countries). That did fuel a little jealousy, although that's hardly Emma Bowen's fault and I still am grateful for everything I learned.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to be yourself and take initiative. Most everybody at my "sponsor company" was laid-back and very easy to talk to--this helped build those relationships that I know help me in the future. Also, make sure you're always doing something to better your knowledge--make sure not to sit at your computer and do nothing--find an employee and ask how you can help.


Sample Interview Questions

-What was your greatest accomplishment?

-What is your dream job?



The interview process with the company was very laid back, I met with each of the department heads separately and they often left questions up to me to ask them.


Advice to Management

My advice to management only really comes AFTER my internship was completed and I was currently an employee--through a few "regime" changes--there arose a lack of communication among managers that unfortunately left things to fall through the cracks for the employees. We need to go back to the time of strong communication and teamwork instead of a this department vs. this department, vs this department atmosphere.
