New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people here are phenomenal and the culture is contagious. Being surrounded by helpful and intelligent mentors was by far the best part of my experience.

Downers

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Wait this is an INTERNSHIP?! But you do so much!

I honestly can't pick a best part. I really liked the week-long intern project, but I also really enjoyed working with my bosses and other researchers to make sure our broadcast had the best and most accurate information possible. I was honored to have my work air every night, and my friends often couldn't believe that this was an internship, and not a job because of how well they treated me and the responsibilities they let me have.

Downers

I can't think of anything I didn't like.

Advice to Potential Interns

CBS really takes care of you if you're willing to work hard. The people here are great and extremely helpful, but only if you are willing to work hard. They have no patience for people who don't try, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Advice to Management

I wish we could get more of a stipend, but I understand that's impossible. The internship itself is a worthy investment to make. Their hands are also tied in terms of jobs, because CBS fills jobs very fast, so they usually don't hold positions for an entire school year. All things I wish I could change are just a product of the industry as a whole, and don't reflect individually on CBS.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An overall great experience with people that truly and honestly care about your success.

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A place were 10 seconds is enough time to make an impression on many. Networking, networking and more networking.

Advice to Potential Interns

The inside scoop of 60 Minutes, what makes your news tick.

3.9 of 5 stars

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

This internship was very rewarding.

Going on shoots and watching how news packages are made

Downers

A lot of down time

Advice to Potential Interns

It's great for a resume but there will be a lot of down time. You will get to see how some of the best broadcasters work, but you need to take the initiative.

The people I worked with were absolutely great, and kept me wanting to come back each day. Being able to watch producers and correspondents at work, as well as putting together a package was an amazing experience.

Downers

The hours were long, but nothing that isn't expected for a news organization. Totally managable and acceptable.

Advice to Potential Interns

CBS News is an incredible place to work and the opportunites you are allowed here go unmatched to any place I have worked so far.
