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.

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.

Indispensable network opportunity and experience gained, and on top of that I get compensated! Couldn't ask for anything more...
Ft. Worth, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being able to do professional work alongside professionals in your field of study.


Downers

Many laws and egulaions don't allow interns to go out into the field as often. The company doesn't want to be liable.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a fast paced environment so if you're wanting to sit back and relax, this is not the place for you. People are super nice and ready to help, but as an intern you must want to learn and show initiative. There are plenty of people who want it to waste time on those who don't.

The quality of the internship program - we had speakers from all departments speak to us each summer about their role in the company and the different aspects of their jobs.

The company culture - the welcoming feeling and overwhelming warmth from full time employees.

I generally didn't not like anything about the program.


Advice to Potential Interns

The Opportunity of a Lifetime
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

It was great getting to experience a work environment for the first time. I just graduated from high school before I started my internship and I think this was a great opportunity for me to have before going into college.


Downers

I wish I would have had the chance to learn about other departments.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be open to trying something new, and be eager to learn new things.


Advice to Management

I think that incoming freshman should rotate in different departments their first summer. Although some people may think that they know what they want to major in, after doing an internship in that field I think they may change their mind so I think it would be great to have a rotation throughout different departments the first summer so they have a chance to figure out what are their likes and dislikes while they still have time to figure out their major/ plans for the future.
