One of the best opportunities I've been fortunate to receive in my entire life

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The opportunities allotted to you; you're pretty much not restricted to any department of the sector you're assigned to. I knew nothing about the Hard News department beforehand but once I found it, I found my niche and loved it there. You're able to find your niche and develop your craft well in whatever niche that is.

Downers

I least liked that I didn't decide to work the shift that I ended up switching to sooner because it was amazing to work the show!

Advice to Potential Interns

Make the best of every opportunity given to you because the little things matter. When given a task, do it and do it well because when you do, people, important people notice and then they start asking you to do so more. Also, don't wait on opportunity to knock on your door. If you know what you want to do when you walk in, find the person doing that and shadow them.

I was able to meet many leaders of the company and learn the ins and outs of the News operations. I was tasked with very important, time-sensitive assignments. The people I worked with were outstanding!

There was not a single 'con' to my internship experience. It was an incredible summer!

The best aspects of the internship included networking and understanding the way the broadcast is put together

Downers

I would have preferred to stay on the morning shift throughout the entire summer.

Advice to Potential Interns

Interning at CBS is an incredible opportunity and experience and I highly recommend it.

Advice to Management

Diversity definitely needs to increase. Out of 70 interns only about 7 were minorities, this is sad and desperately needs to be changed.

the people that I got to work with definitely made the experience special; I was assisting producers and sitting in meetings with renowned news anchors who all definitely impacted my time at CBS. I also feel that having the opportunity to represent a historically rich and prosperous brand like CBS is a huge door opener and will benefit me greatly in my future career endeavors.

Downers

The department I was assigned to had a large group of interns and since we were rotating shifts, I felt like it created some unnecessary competition among the interns and I also felt like it did not allow me to have consistent contact with some of the producers I worked with over the summer.

Advice to Potential Interns

The best part about my internship was working directly with Norah O'Donnell. I got to sit in the studio every day and help out whenever possible. I also was able to go on interviews with her.

Downers

The early hours were tough, but I got used to them. The intern project was also stressful, but rewarding in the end. It was also annoying to have to stay around to listen to speakers when my shift ended 2 hours before.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you want an internship in entertainment or sports journalism, this is not the internship for you.

Would You Recommend

It is up to you to make the most of your experience. Ask the people you work with to connect you with others at CBS so you can see what each show is like. Make connections with everyone you can.

Make sure all guidelines for intern pay/compensation are clearly adressed and stated in writing!
