Special Projects Intern

May - August 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved the opportunity to work on three news teams - consumer, investigative and health news. I got to interview Olympians, charity do-gooders, residents of Detroit, doctors, lawyers, and other people with insanely interesting stories. I got to work with talented photographers and reporters every day.

What I wish was different

I wish there was less LOGGING. Sometimes I would spend hours logging and transcribing footage because it needed to get done, but it was very boring.

Advice

Be fiesty! Speak up! Write every day -- two of my drafts ended up airing on TV. I got the most out of my internship because I worked harder than the other interns and did well on the little things. They trusted me with small tasks and gave me bigger and bigger roles.

Media Sales/ Promotions Intern

September - November 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

WDIV is very laid back and the regular employees are a hoot to get to know. Very friendly atmosphere and comfortable work environment.

What I wish was different

My sectors were quite busy all the time so I was stuck doing the same things for a few weeks straight at one point: sitting at my cubicle, filing papers and doing research on clients. Once things picked up, I was able to do more, but I wish I was able to do more with the weeks that were spent doing the boring work.

Advice

Do not be afraid! WDIV seems intimidating at first, but just keep your cool and you'll fall right into place.
