Success happens when someone dedicates their full potential and energy to the experiences that come their way.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

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.

I shudder to think about my career trajectory had I not been a part of the Emma Bowen Foundation..
Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

-immersion in a corporate environment

-workshops and personal development activities that helped polish and prepare us for careers after college

-hands-on experience in multiple departments was invaluable

-the attentiveness of the EBF staff, always available, always helpful, concerned with our well-being and best interests

-paid internships with matching funds from the Foundation helped my family and I immensely..the financial burden of attending a university such as Syracuse that charges well over $50k annually to attend was greatly eased by the generosity of the Foundation and its corporate partners. Thank You.

-the summer conference where we were able to listen to and speak with leaders in the industry to help us gain a better understanding of the careers we were seeking


Downers

No cons.. The Emma Bowen Foundation has been a blessing, and as I stated before, I shudder to think about my career trajectory had I not had the experience, training, development, and networking opportunities that EBF provided.


Advice to Potential Interns

EMF is extremely competitive, and understandably so. Students who succeed in EBF are unafraid of challenges, studious, well-rounded and professional. Do all that you can to be accepted into the EBF family, because it is just that, a family. I completed my internship 7 years ago, and have maintained many friendships with other interns throughout the years.


Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! Thank you for everything.

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.
