Work the dream career as an intern
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

There are several opportunities to help producers with on-air content for the broadcast. As an intern I also had the ability to meet celebrities and attend on-location shoots. We are considered a part of the team and we are treated with respect as the other entry-level employees of the station.


Downers

Since this was a morning broadcast, the producers were very busy. In the beginning it would have been helpful to have a mentor or teacher describe the basics of working for a news station as well as helpful tips to succeed. The information in the beginning of the internship was very sporadic and there might have been less mistakes if people learned the proper way to complete tasks.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is an internship that allows you to gain professional experience working with a prestigious company. CBS News is amazing and it is up to you to utilize all of the resources and services provided through this internship.

The greatest experience of my life.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Met some very important people in the industry and was an integral part of a national news broadcast. The people I worked with were very helpful and easy to talk to. I also really enjoyed the intern project we worked on.


Downers

We didn't get to move around different departments or visit them as much as I would have wanted,


Advice to Potential Interns

If you would like to work in the industry and for this employer, the best thing to do is to put yourself out there. Make your voice heard without being too obnoxious.

Internship of a lifetime.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working alongside producers, writers and editors who have established credibility with their work.


Downers

The competitiveness between the different intern within the departments. It was only inevitable but I did not appreciate when one would throw another under the bus.


Advice to Potential Interns

Always dress for success and make sure your voice is heard. It's better if one is proactive rather than being reactive.

Meeting incredible/inspiring people. Feeling that everyday had a purpose.

Money was very tight and was a bit stressful. Also, some of the younger people that I worked with were actually harder to get along with than the seniors of the show.

I learned important aspects of the business; more than I have in my 3 years of college. I'm prepared to take this on as a career.


Advice to Management

I enjoyed everything and nothing outstanding really comes to mind as to how the program could improve.
