Interns learns valuable lessons about industry, what it takes


Uppers

I really enjoyed earning bylines for video web write-ups on http://cbsthismorning.com. It was also incredibly beneficial to work with on social media and be put in the middle of all major interviews, stories, etc.


Downers

I don't think I can say I disliked any one aspect; overall, this has been a very informative, eye-opening, and valuable set of experiences for me. I will say it was a bit difficult to adjust to the 5:45am to 1:45pm schedule, but that was just a pretty fair trade-off for the rest of what this summer offered.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would advise finding someone you can work closely with on a daily basis. It helps you make a connection in the office, and allows you to seek out additional opportunities at CBS News.

CBS News internship the most rewarding, challenging and gratifying experience of my life.


Uppers

We were encouraged, and had the ability, to make the internship what best suited to our needs. Not only was I entrusted to complete major projects that involved coordinating logistics for CBS Radio affiliates, I also had time to initiate meetings with reporters and producers I have admired for years. Katie Curcio, our intern coordinator, also did a fantastic job of providing us with speakers every week, kickball and softball games, as well as the chance to spend a week putting together a TV story with a group. I can't complain about one thing about that internship. It was the best.


Downers

I honestly liked everything about it. I was nervous to work with random members of a group for a week, but it worked out great and provided real-world challenges that we learned to work through.


Advice to Potential Interns

Even at the network level, there is a tremendous feeling of family at CBS. I felt welcomed by everyone I met.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Skills and Experience that can not be bought


Uppers

Working for a national broadcast and helping the producers with content that will actually be used on air.


Downers

Lack of structure or mentorship in the beginning to learn the necessities and rules of the broadcast.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is important to choose an internship that interests you and will allow you to gain professional experience that relates to your academic goals.


Advice to Management

If it is possible, it will be helpful to learn the basics within the first two weeks of the internship. Over the summer we had to learn information the moment we were working on a project rather than knowing it all beforehand.
