Repeating an Internship

For the most part, internships are a one-time event. Interns come for a semester or the summer and then head back to school. But sometimes, interns who are still in school want to come back and intern again.

Why are Internships Important?

If you ever get the chance to intern in your prospective field, take it. It could make a huge difference in what happens next in your career.

I have had the privilege of mentoring over 100 interns during my 15 years with NewTV. From high school students to graduate students to volunteers well out of school, all are looking to gain the hands-on experience that one can get while working on stories for Newton News. They all have the same drive to be the best they can be.  I never tire of their enthusiasm or the deer in headlights look (I know it sounds cruel but I had those same eyes once too).

Over the many years I have worked here, I have had the pleasure of working with over 100 incredible student interns. These interns are made up of college students from around the country, students from local high schools, as well as college graduates.

A couple of weeks ago I went to a career day type of event at Newton North High School with Stephen Kessinger, Director of Government and Educational Media. Out of all the events and jobs I’ve done through NewTV this one has stuck out to me the most.

Intern Short Films & Reflections

At the end of each semester, we say goodbye to many of our interns and anxiously await the arrival of the next group of students to train, mentor and watch as they develop their skills. Over the past few weeks, production services intern Katie Emerson and original programming intern Camille Frazier finished their time at NewTV. Throughout the semester, they learned new skills, gained hands-on experience and produced their own short films. Before they left, both took the time to reflect on the experience.

NewTV offers interns from various disciplines unique hands-on opportunities to better prepare them for the working world of TV production. For the second year in a row, we’ve broadened our internship program to include global collaboration with the Wider Horizons Tyrone Donegal Partnership in Ireland. This non-profit organization strives to improve local and cross-border development in Irish counties by removing social barriers and enforcing relationships.

Hands-On Broadcast Journalism Training

Every three months or so I get inquiries from students in high school and college about becoming an intern for Newton News, so I send them an application and a description about what the internship entails. Once the application is completed we set up a face-to-face interview to go over the internship in more detail. This is where I see students get those “deer in the headlights” looks. Why? Because I explain to them that in order to do the job necessary as an intern, they must go out with the camera and get the interviews and footage on their own… I don’t go with them. This is for a few reasons: I would take over the shoot if I were there, I need to see what they’ve learned and let them make those important mistakes that are inevitable with all interns, and I need them to build their confidence so they see that they in fact, can do this. I do give them my cell number and encourage them to call for any reason if they have any questions about operating the camera.
