New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I have definitely learned how to work well under pressure and to constantly maintain a positive attitude as a result of this internship. In the future I will be used to working with people from varying backgrounds and personalities and as a result, adapt to the environment a lot better.

Downers

I didn't like how I didn't have tasks to do at times, however I know that the reasons make sense since interns can't help with everything.

Advice to Potential Interns

Because there won't be things to do all the time, I would tell potential interns to do anything and everything. It is not enough to execute a task, but do it with a smile so they can think of you for the next time.

Advice to Management

I had a great schedule and even as a person of color, I felt that this summer's internship group was pretty diverse.

- Weekly workshops with guest speakers.

- Summer events coordinated by our internship coordinator

- Making friends with fellow interns

Downers

- The lack of work in my department

- The length (I wish it was a week longer)

- The amount of interns

Advice to Potential Interns

CBS News offers great opportunity and experience for up and coming students in all areas of the work place. It is your job to make yourself stand out and be noticed, for good reason, not bad ones.

Advice to Management

I would advise to not bring on so many interns (70). Seventy interns is a lot. If there were less interns, there would be more work and more opportunity for all of them to get to know each other.
