An Awarding Experience Guaranteeing Four Years: Summer Internship and Exposure to Different Departments at a Well-Known Media Company

5.0 of 5 stars

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

5.0 of 5 stars

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.

Advice to Potential Interns

This internship is more than an internship. It's an actual job that trains the future leaders of the media.

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

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.

What I do with my time is up to me. I can craft my days around what I would like to learn and do.

What I contribute is only limited by imagination.

Downers

I have long commutes.

Advice to Potential Interns

When you join the organization, you will likely be doing a job better suited for several people instead of just one. Right now the organization needs people, and until we get those people, this will be the nature of the job. If you decide to work hard and go above and beyond in the tasks at hand, you will benefit more here than at other establishments. The upward mobility far outways the temporary sacrifice and stress.

Sample Interview Questions

What are current events in the news?

Who is Emma Bowen?

What experience do you bring to the table?

How do you think our organization can improve?

Advice to Management

Employee retention is currently a problem at the station. The talented people are either leaving or retiring. To improve the workplace, my organization not only needs to hire new people to fill vacant positions, but support staff to help out the talented veterans.

100% matching funds of the summer earnings from the corporate sponsor can be used for school related expenses like rent, laptops, flights for school!

Downers

N/A. The Emma Bowen Foundation provides access to organizations with several departments. It would be even better if there was a motion picture sponsor for interns interested in working on film.

Advice to Potential Interns

Have an open mind when considering opportunities as experiences and skill set are very crucial to success in any organization. An open mind along with a proactive attitude will help one stand out from the crowd of potential employees.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about your life experiences, goals, and interests.

Advice to Management

My company addresses concerns and issues immediately and being vocal has made my place of work ideal.

I was able to rotate throughout different departments in the company, which allowed me to determine which jobs I was and was not interested in doing.
