CBS is proud to offer internship opportunities designed to provide field experience for students pursuing careers in television broadcasting and related fields. Our internships will expose you to industry professionals and promote both your personal and career development. Some internships are designed to expose a student to one specific department or project whereas others will allow for the student to rotate between departments.
We offer a limited number of paid internships throughout the year (winter/spring, summer and fall semesters). We generally receive more applications than we can accommodate so the selection process is highly competitive. Internships are approximately 12 weeks in duration/20 hours per week, determined by the supervisor. Transportation costs, meals, and any other financial obligations are the sole responsibility of the individual intern. Interns are expected to dress appropriately for the business environment.
