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.

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.

The inside scoop of 60 Minutes, what makes your news tick.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Interacting with amazing mentors, being really involved in team discussions, having a voice, being encouraged to pitch original stories, having the opportunity to produce an original piece, various planned intern events/speaks, comaraderie, making an impact - not just doing clerical work.


Downers

In July most of 60 Minutes employees are away so it's a lot of solo work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Definitely get involved and reach out to people. Everyone is very willing to help but they are also busy with their own projects. If you make it known that you are there and willing to help, they will be great mentors.


Advice to Management

Paid internship would be great, but the experience is worth it regardless.
