Crash course in all aspects of news production
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were the networking opportunities and activities for te interns to get to know other interns and CBS employees.


Downers

Sometimes work was slow but that comes with the territory, I would just go to my supervisors and find work.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want a well rounded internship experience that introduces you to the world of journalism outside of the classroom, this is the internship for you!

CBS News has confirmed that I am pursuing the field I want to be in, and encourages my passion to excel at whatever task is given to me.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning the many aspects that go into creating a news show and networking with these people.


Downers

I wish there were some way to improve one's writing skills.


Advice to Potential Interns

No job is above you, but no job is beneath you either. Pursue anything you want to do to make a lasting impression from making behind-the-scenes videos to reorganizing cabinets to free up more space. Every extra thing goes a long way.

CBS Interns Gain Valuable Experience
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

The work environment was exceptional. I developed a close relationship with my producers and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful.

For the first two weeks approximately, I did not have much to do, which made the work day drag by.

CBS Internship Offers Real World Experience In One of the Best Corporate Environments in the Country
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people were incredibly approachable, inclusive and intelligent--they were more than willing to work with you and the assignments were both challenging and more than likely would earn you some credit.


Downers

The stipend was rather weak.


Advice to Potential Interns

I could not have asked for a better corporate environment. The people here at CBS and especially 60 Minutes want nothing more than for you to succeed. If you can prove your dedication and passion, they will ensure you are given the work to best demonstrate your skills. They function like a family and show young reporters what quality news reporting is all about. I cannot say enough positive things about this internship, but I know that I am working around the clock to make sure I come back there.


Advice to Management

I would say pay should be considered, but I would recommend the internship to anyone even without pay.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Want a Dream Job? Start Paving Your Path With a Dream Internship at CBS News!
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship are the group project and the people you get to meet. The group project is insanely challenging, but that's what makes it fun. The advisors are more than willing to help you out, and if you get the right group of kids together, it makes for a truly memorable experience. In addition, all of the people you will meet (whether employees or other interns) are all awesome. They make the internship experience great.


Downers

I wish we could have at least gotten more of a travel stipend! My school takes academic credit, but it only takes one credit, that doesn't count toward graduation...so basically they don't count it, which meant I couldn't get a travel stipend or a discounted train pass or housing discounts. To be honest, it was a privilege to intern here, so I didn't see it as something that was their problem. It was my situation, and I was fortunate enough to be picked, so I made arrangements as necessary to take advantage of this opportunity.


Advice to Potential Interns

Talk to as many people as you can and ask how invested they are in the intern program. They absolutely love it, and if you're an intern who talks to a lot of different people and makes a lot of different contacts, these will be great references for future employers


Advice to Management

The only thing was travel money, but to be honest, it was a privilege to intern here, so I didn't see it as something that was their problem. It was my situation, and I was fortunate enough to be picked, so I made arrangements as necessary to take advantage of this opportunity.
