CBS NEW INTERNSHIP: MEDIOCRE TASKS WITH AWESOME OPPORTUNITIES


Uppers

We had a lot of great opportunities to speak to executives in the company. Got to see some cool things. The office was very friendly.


Downers

The everyday tasks were somewhat boring and felt some what unimportant. Sometimes I felt as though the office did not know what to do with us. I did a lot of just sitting there- not that I wanted more "busy" work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be very open in the beginning about your expectations.


Advice to Management

In the press office I would recommend assigning an intern to each of the publicists


Would You Recommend

Yes

loved it


Uppers

I got a lot of hands on experience assisting the producers with their projects


Downers

I only had 10 weeks there, not enough time to really get comfortable and get good at what I was doing


Advice to Potential Interns

If you get into the CBS internship program, try as hard as you can to get in to the Investigative Unit. It is by far the best gig.


Would You Recommend

Yes
