Internship of a lifetime.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Working alongside producers, writers and editors who have established credibility with their work.

The competitiveness between the different intern within the departments. It was only inevitable but I did not appreciate when one would throw another under the bus.

Work the dream career as an intern
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

There are several opportunities to help producers with on-air content for the broadcast. As an intern I also had the ability to meet celebrities and attend on-location shoots. We are considered a part of the team and we are treated with respect as the other entry-level employees of the station.


Downers

Since this was a morning broadcast, the producers were very busy. In the beginning it would have been helpful to have a mentor or teacher describe the basics of working for a news station as well as helpful tips to succeed. The information in the beginning of the internship was very sporadic and there might have been less mistakes if people learned the proper way to complete tasks.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is an internship that allows you to gain professional experience working with a prestigious company. CBS News is amazing and it is up to you to utilize all of the resources and services provided through this internship.

Money was very tight and was a bit stressful. Also, some of the younger people that I worked with were actually harder to get along with than the seniors of the show.
