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.

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.

An internship so great that I wanted to wake up at 3:00 am to get to the office because everyone I worked with was so awesome.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Accessiblity to amazing resources and everyone at CBS was so willing to share advice and spend time talking to you.


Downers

I did not like all the logging and transcribing interviews. But it needs to be done.


Advice to Potential Interns

They want people who can get the tasks done in a timely fashion and not screw them up - because they are simple tasks and they want to be able to rely on us to get stuff done and then they will continue giving you tasks.


Advice to Management

I think more socioeconomic diversity would be useful. Another opportunity to sit with the higher-ups, the senior producers, would have been good.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Dreams Become a Reality while interning with CBS News
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I have definitely learned how to work well under pressure and to constantly maintain a positive attitude as a result of this internship. In the future I will be used to working with people from varying backgrounds and personalities and as a result, adapt to the environment a lot better.


Downers

I didn't like how I didn't have tasks to do at times, however I know that the reasons make sense since interns can't help with everything.


Advice to Potential Interns

Because there won't be things to do all the time, I would tell potential interns to do anything and everything. It is not enough to execute a task, but do it with a smile so they can think of you for the next time.


Advice to Management

I had a great schedule and even as a person of color, I felt that this summer's internship group was pretty diverse.

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes
