I get to grow my professional and technical skills while I mature as a person.
Washington, DC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.
