Advice to Potential Interns

You are going to love your internship experience. However, you must make it what you want. There will be moments where work is sparse. Don't feel afraid to ask for work. If no one has work, then walk around the broadcast center. There aren't many places where you will not have access or not know someone who can let you in.

The speakers who came in to talk to the interns were extremely helpful and it was great to have successful people share their stories with us. I also really enjoyed to intern project.

Downers

Most of the tasks we do are very basic and we end up not learning as much as we'd like to. There was also a lot of sitting around and not doing much work.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you know that you want to work with journalism, this is a great opportunity to make connections and begin your journey in the industry. If you're not sure, it's a chance to test the waters and see what your potential career would look like.

Advice to Management

Allow the interns to take on more responsibility and offer opportunities for them to show their skills that may be extremely helpful for CBS News as an organization.

Meeting the CBS Team. Coming from Florida and just still feeling at home.

Downers

The intern coordinator was very honest. The employees look out for the interns and make sure we never go under at CBS this morning. They treat you like an adult in the real world you are here to work and they will make sure they do there part too.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go for it, but be genuine in the process. Being in New York at a huge network is one thing but actually being back tangible work that you can say you did while there is another.

Advice to Management

Everything was great.

Uppers

The best aspect of my internship was the mentorship I received throughout the summer.

Downers

The thing I liked least about my internship experience was how short the time was.

Advice to Potential Interns

My advice would to not be afraid to get to know the employees of this company. Too many times interns walk through the CBS doors and are scared to speak or ask certain questions, I learned to go out my comfort zone this summer and it helped me.

Sample Interview Questions

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

The access to the immense network that CBS has to offer.

Downers

CBS This Morning does not have any structure for their interns.

Advice to Potential Interns

CBS has a nice corporate culture, but sometimes forgets about its interns.

Advice to Management

CBS This Morning could have a few more tasks assigned specifically to interns.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Well organized internship program. Got access to lots of amazing speakers and had the opportunity to speak with/get advice with many people in the company.

Communicate more with interns during the interview process and throughout the summer

Ability to experience, visually and physically, the many different areas of the business.

Some shifts didn't have that much going on and the limit of what an intern can/is allowed to/is able to do.

Working with the different creative people that help prepare the shows. It was interesting to see different views on how to relay the same information.

Downers

Pay could have been more especially when it came to working things such as breaking news or political campaigns.

Advice to Potential Interns

CBS is an amazing place to be and definitely does what journalism should do and is fair and objective.

Uppers

Working at 60 Minutes gave me a lot of responsibility, but also a lot of independence.

Downers

I honestly liked everything about the internship itself. The location (57th and 11th) is not ideal--but beyond that I really have nothing negative to say.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to network and really put yourself out there

Advice to Management

For 60 Minutes specifically there do not seem to be any clear paths to getting a job--so maybe clarifying that.
