The Emma Bowen Foundation: The Media Industry's Best Kept Secret
Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- Interns are actually paid a competitive internship wage.

- Summer pay is matched with SCHOLARSHIP funding during each school year! This is a HUGE benefit that other internship foundations typically don't offer.

- All-expense paid trips to New York for the annual career development and networking conferences every summer.

- VERY attentive senior staff; The President and SVP still keep in regular contact with me (and other alumni) to this day!

- Vibrant body of students that keep in close contact and remain in your network for years to come; Some of my closest friends (and potential business partners) are fellow interns that matriculated through The Foundation with me.


Downers

There is virtually nothing bad about this program. If a student is interested in the media industry, this is the BEST decision he/she can make aside from choosing what college to attend.



The only "con" I would offer is that as an applicant you don't get to choose the company you're placed with, only the city. This is minor, however, because at that stage in your career you should be open to being exposed to different companies and functions within the industry anyway. Plus once you are placed, the senior staff can work with you to rotate you into a department that closely matches your major/career goals/etc.


Advice to Potential Interns

- Take full advantage of the summer conferences in New York. This is where you network and hone your skills to take back with you to your internship and studies.

- Be responsive to the staff. They're there to help you. The more responsive/cooperative you are with them, the more they'll extend themselves to work things out for your specific situation.

Amazing! Major Corporate Setting, Matching Funds and the Ultimate Business Exposure, that is the Emma Bowen Foundation!
Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

• Being included in supervisor/executive meetings

• Executing strategies and ideas

• Learning daily from top leaders in the media industry


Downers

This past internship, I was disappointed in how the evaluation process was not taken seriously.


Advice to Potential Interns

Always maintain a positive outlook and a dynamite work ethic. No matter what situation occurs on the internship, never make or take it personally, but continue to focus on getting the job done with enthusiasm and accuracy.


Sample Interview Questions

Who was Emma Bowen and what did she stand for?

With all that's on your plate, how would an internship such as this work for you?


Advice to Management

The Emma Bowen Foundation strives to see only success within each of their students. In every way imaginable, this foundation has the best interest for those willing to impact the media industry.

Was supported in branching out and gaining as many experiences as possible

Could get a little hectic, but "hectic" is something to be expected from a full-time employee

It has been a remarkable experience getting to know people from so many diverse professions, getting together and running a new network.
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part about interning at The Africa Channel was being able to experience what it is like to be part of the more professional work force. My coworkers had experiences in working for NBC, Reebok, etc. and it allowed me to pick at their knowledge and learn about how different brands function.


Downers

Since my company is a newer network, my work space was not as comfortable as someone who interned for FOX, for example, but it was an insightful experience to see what it takes to start your own network.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to work hard and drop any pride you have. This is an internship where you mostly hear and don't say too much because you are young and your coworkers are grown professionals. Sometimes speaking too much can get you to become too comfortable and thus say something that you don't mean or that sounds insulting.


Sample Interview Questions

What skills do you have to offer for this workplace?

What do you see yourself doing?

How may we help you achieve your personal goals?


Advice to Management

I did not receive formal training so if my internship would have offered that, I would have been able to have a better understanding of what is expected of me.
