Internship Program Director Goes Above and Beyond for Interns

5.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Weekly activities with entire intern program. An intense group project with provided equipment and budget that pushed interns to their greatest potential.

Downers

The internship program went above my expectations. It was amazing and I can't think of any bad qualities.

Advice to Potential Interns

Always help and never laze around. Don't say anything disrespectful as every word will be remembered. Your face will be remembered only for the worst and best things you do.

Advice to Management

Extend the program from 10 weeks to 12 weeks.

Always smiling, and always willing to help, teach, and discuss the future

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Everything about this internship was amazing. I met wonderful people who mentored me and relied on me. I was able to gain so much real-life experience in this field while in an awesome environment.

Downers

Sometimes it can be intimidating answering the phones but you just have to be confident and ask someone until you gain a sense of the answers you should be giving.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would say if you have a will to learn, a love for broadcast and news then CBS News is the place to be.

Advice to Management

It would always be nice to receive a larger compensation just because New York is an expensive place to live but I would not trade my experience for the world.

Would You Recommend

Yes

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people here are phenomenal and the culture is contagious. Being surrounded by helpful and intelligent mentors was by far the best part of my experience.

Downers

If anything it was just too short

Advice to Potential Interns

Know the company and know the shows. Do your homework and come in with an open mind. Job descriptions don't exist in this business, if you want to be successful you can't consider yourself entitled to anything, at least at first.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An overall great experience with people that truly and honestly care about your success.

4.3 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people, no matter how high-up they were, were willing to listen and expressed a genuine interest in the things that interested me which I really appreciated.

Downers

Sometimes the duties at Newspath weren't as defined so some days I was not as active, but those times I tried to find projects outside of the department.

Advice to Potential Interns

Mr. Kurt Davis is doing a great job trying to reinvent Newspath's image, so I believe that there is a modernization that will be beneficial for the brand.
