team intern.jpgLanding your fantasy media internship is a beautiful thing — working hard in the field of your dreams, mastering the fine art of photocopying, and acquiring valuable skills like, um, well, we’re sure there are some. Internships may not always be as fun and glamorous as we make them out to be, but with the right approach, they will actually help you get jobs. We know because mediabistro.com interns go on to great gigs, including working here.
Some tips on how to survive your summer internship:
1. Soak up as much information as possible. Good or bad, there’s always something to take away from your internship experience. Meet as many people as you can and learn about the work they’re doing. This is the time to decide whether the work is a good fit for you long-term.
2. Learn about the industry. Do your research so that you’re knowledgeable about the work that you’re doing. Check out mediabistro.com’s blogs every day – TVNewser offers invaluable info for anyone in broadcasting, and GalleyCat will give you the inside scoop on the book publishing world.
3. Meet and commiserate with fellow interns! We’re throwing a Media Intern & Student Party in New York on Monday, July 23, and you’re invited. mediabistro.com is all about building a sense of community, and since it’s the height of intern season, we figure you all can use a few drinks by now!
