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.
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.
