Interns learns valuable lessons about industry, what it takes
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Being at CBS headquaters in New York City and having the opportunity to meet and network with some experienced journalist. I also feel that I was doing the same work as a newly hired full-time employee.
