CBS News internship the most rewarding, challenging and gratifying experience of my life.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

We were encouraged, and had the ability, to make the internship what best suited to our needs. Not only was I entrusted to complete major projects that involved coordinating logistics for CBS Radio affiliates, I also had time to initiate meetings with reporters and producers I have admired for years. Katie Curcio, our intern coordinator, also did a fantastic job of providing us with speakers every week, kickball and softball games, as well as the chance to spend a week putting together a TV story with a group. I can't complain about one thing about that internship. It was the best.


Downers

I honestly liked everything about it. I was nervous to work with random members of a group for a week, but it worked out great and provided real-world challenges that we learned to work through.


Advice to Potential Interns

Even at the network level, there is a tremendous feeling of family at CBS. I felt welcomed by everyone I met.

Great internship that allows you to learn from the best of the best.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being at CBS headquaters in New York City and having the opportunity to meet and network with some experienced journalist. I also feel that I was doing the same work as a newly hired full-time employee.


Downers

It went by too fast. I would also like to have seen different parts of the company. Mainly got the experience the one place I was stationed and I would like to seen other operations in the company.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to work hard and take follow advantage of networking and meeting as many people as you can.

Skills and Experience that can not be bought
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working for a national broadcast and helping the producers with content that will actually be used on air.


Downers

Lack of structure or mentorship in the beginning to learn the necessities and rules of the broadcast.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is important to choose an internship that interests you and will allow you to gain professional experience that relates to your academic goals.


Advice to Management

If it is possible, it will be helpful to learn the basics within the first two weeks of the internship. Over the summer we had to learn information the moment we were working on a project rather than knowing it all beforehand.


Would You Recommend

Yes

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

What I liked least about the internship was not being able to show as much of my work for criticism.
