High Hopes for Qualified Intern but Terrible supervisor

The manager was very helpful in teaching me new skills.

Internship Program Director Goes Above and Beyond for Interns
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Weekly activities with entire intern program. An intense group project with provided equipment and budget that pushed interns to their greatest potential.


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

Always help and never laze around. Don't say anything disrespectful as every word will be remembered. Your face will be remembered only for the worst and best things you do.


Advice to Management

Extend the program from 10 weeks to 12 weeks.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Wait this is an INTERNSHIP?! But you do so much!
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I honestly can't pick a best part. I really liked the week-long intern project, but I also really enjoyed working with my bosses and other researchers to make sure our broadcast had the best and most accurate information possible. I was honored to have my work air every night, and my friends often couldn't believe that this was an internship, and not a job because of how well they treated me and the responsibilities they let me have.


Downers

I can't think of anything I didn't like.


Advice to Potential Interns

CBS really takes care of you if you're willing to work hard. The people here are great and extremely helpful, but only if you are willing to work hard. They have no patience for people who don't try, and I wouldn't have it any other way.


Advice to Management

I wish we could get more of a stipend, but I understand that's impossible. The internship itself is a worthy investment to make. Their hands are also tied in terms of jobs, because CBS fills jobs very fast, so they usually don't hold positions for an entire school year. All things I wish I could change are just a product of the industry as a whole, and don't reflect individually on CBS.

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.

An overall great experience with people that truly and honestly care about your success.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people, no matter how high-up they were, were willing to listen and expressed a genuine interest in the things that interested me which I really appreciated.


Downers

Sometimes the duties at Newspath weren't as defined so some days I was not as active, but those times I tried to find projects outside of the department.


Advice to Potential Interns

Mr. Kurt Davis is doing a great job trying to reinvent Newspath's image, so I believe that there is a modernization that will be beneficial for the brand.

Fast paced, constantly challenging, and immensley rewarding journalism training
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.


Downers

If anything it was just too short


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.

Yes
