It was boring and I did the same thing everyday

Be prepared to work at the very bottom, with a slight chance in moving up. The field is very competitive.

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being apart of an organization that I deeply respect was amazing. It was so neat to be surrounded and learn from people who produce a news product that I admire.

Downers

I found it disappointing that I worked more than 40 hours per work without pay.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to be serious. It's a no nonsense environment.

Advice to Management

It was difficult to live in New York City and only be compensated $50/week. It would help morale if it was paid.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Interesting but not much to do.
