This is a ground-floor look inside a television network that very few ever get to see. This internship will be based in the Program Planning and Scheduling Department at CBS Television in Los Angeles. This department decides time periods for all CBS television programs, specials and movies, and shapes the schedule for the entire CBS television network. Our department is the hub for programming information at CBS and as such, we work with comedy and drama development, current programming, late night, research, daytime, media relations, sales, marketing, owned stations, affiliate relations, CBS news and CBS sports on a daily basis. Our hope is that this internship would give the selected student the opportunity to see a broad cross section of a television network and spend time in some of the departments listed above. While you need not have a specific area of interest within the television industry, hopefully television in general is near the top of your career choices.
This one-time summer internship with a scholarship funded through the Communication Arts Alumni Internship Fund is for a junior or senior who has been admitted to the Communication Arts major. May graduates may apply, if they haven't completed Comm Arts 614 and 615. <br><br> Applicants should demonstrate not only an interest in pursuing a career in tv, but a real love of television programming. (Essentially CBS is looking for a tv junkie -- someone who has strong opinions about tv series and several favorite shows.) Preference given to applicants with prior media-related (tv, radio, film) internships or experience.While CBS plans to offer steady guidance, the intern should also be able to work somewhat independently at times. A car or personal transportation isn't required, but it would open up additional opportunities, such as attending table reads and show tapings. The intern will work 37 1/2 - 40 hours per week for 6-8 weeks, starting mid-June. Academic credit is required. <br><br>
