I believe what makes an internship great is the people that work in the company. In my internship, I got to work with different kinds of people who taught me lessons I did not imagine I would learn this summer. Also, being a sophomore in college I learned so much about different companies and how the sales department in a media company works.

Downers

I received a lot of work at some point of my internship, but I would have liked to spend more time networking and talking to people in the business. During the internship, the company did have a program that brought the heads of the different businesses to talk to all the interns but a conversation with the interns would have also been interesting.

Advice to Potential Interns

The intern that applies to this program will receive a chance that he or she never thought would arrive at such an early stage in his or her life. I am so grateful to be part of the Emma Bowen Foundation because they truly care about and believe in the students in the program. They not only provide us with the chance to intern in any of the greatest media companies, but the EBF leaders provide us with opportunities during the school year, with guidance from knowledgeable and trusting individuals and with a great conference to network among students and network with industry leaders and possible mentors.

Sample Interview Questions

-What are you interested in doing during college? What extracurricular activities will you still do?

-Do you have any long term plans? For college or further in your career?

Advice to Management

The Emma Bowen Foundation could maybe contact the companies it partners with and talk to them about a long term project for the EBF students who return every summer during college to better indulge in the learning the companies could provide.

There is so much to say on what were the "best asepcts of my internship", but here are a few"

*Paid Internship

*Matching funds scholarship

*Free flight and hotel accommodations to New York City for a yearly summer conference (From second summer in the program to your last after graduating college)

*Ability to choose the department you want to intern with

*Ability to get first-hand experience in actual production work, etc. for National and International TV outlets, etc.

*Being chosen to partake in this program by some of the most caring and amazing individuals on this planet.

*Making life-long friends both at home and nation-wide with people who share similar interests.

*The feeling you get when someone recognizes the Emma Bowen Foundation and KNOW you are a big deal and what you represent.

*Additional scholarship opportunities sent via e-mail that are almost tailored to us

*AND SO MUCH MORE

Downers

What I least like about my internship is that it's only during the summer (WHICH FLIES BY PRETTY FAST). Besides that, there is NOTHING to dislike. That's impossible.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you don't take the time to check out EmmaBowenFoundation.com and read what this program has to offer, then you just made the silliest mistake in your life. If anything, I'd say just apply and worry about what it is later. The Emma Bowen Foundation is like NOTHING ELSE (at least in this country) and will have a major impact on your life. You NEED to check it out if you are interested in Media/Television.

Sample Interview Questions

In short, you better be someone who is dedicated and interested in the TV/Media field. Anyone truly has the opporunity to get into EBF but as long as you show that you are willing to learn and expand on your interests. It may be a bit of a challange at first to get in, but once you are it's nothing but a wonderful rollercoaster.

Advice to Management

In regards to the Emma Bowen Foundation, please give us an additional day in New York City. That way, my friends and I, have even more time to enjoy ourselves in that wonderful city. That's all I ask for.



In regards to Telemundo, if you offer free Ice Cream on friday's then you are PERFECT. Telemundo is definitely a great place for young people like myself to start out and climb the corporate ladder.

The real life work experience that I gained. The Emma Bowen Foundation gave me a huge advantage over my peers. I was paired with a top media company at such a young age. I learned so much and I definitely value the experience.

Downers

I didn't like the departments that I got paired with. I want to be a journalist, but I never got the chance to work in the media department.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you're pursuing a career in the media industry, then the Emma Bowen Foundation is for you! The amount of respect and trust that companies put in Emma Bowen interns is unbelievable. You learn so much from all of the intern rotations. Not to mention, the phenomenal annual conference hosted in New York. The Emma Bowen Foundation is simply an experience unlike any other.

Advice to Management

The foundation can try to put people in departments that pertain to their majors. Everything else is excellent!
