Pros:

I worked for the Fox Business Network as a production assistant. It was very cool to see what goes on behind the scenes and the producers did a good job getting me involved and educating me on their thinking. I was also able to contribute some online research/writing about the economy.

Cons:

- Most media internships are unpaid unless you can get some type of grant through your school.
- Some times I was doing pretty menial tasks.

Advice for other students:

Work hard on your application.

Pros:

I worked alongside Rivera and his staff on the weekend news show Geraldo at Large.

It took me a few days at first. We had pitch meetings every Wednesday, and they expected us [interns] to have fresh story ideas. I started researching, looking on the Internet, blog sites, anywhere I could find that story that was unique and timely. I was looking for something no one else was covering. It was very exciting to be part of this process, I loved it.

Cons:

nothing

Advice for other students:

Be ready to get creative! It was kind of surreal that they were actually accepting my ideas and they wanted me to be so involved with the process. I wanted to impress them with all of my ability. I wanted to go out there and do my best.
