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

The best summer of my life.
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.

Interns develop and harness essential skills in the field of journalism and production .
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

There are so many great aspects about this internship. The notion of pitches that have the potential to make the show is a neat aspect. Furthermore, the ability to sit in on production meetings and gain a better understanding for production and the news environment provides interns with useful knowledge about the process of putting a show together. Going on shoots was also a very cool aspect because we were able to see how interviews work and had each detail is important.


Downers

overall I had a good time and learned a lot.

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.

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.
