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.

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.
