This book helps students get internships in the broadcast news and entertainment field and teaches them how to make the most of their experience. It not only explains how to get an internship in the industry, but how to avoid being a ‘go-fer’ and actually become an asset to the company. As both a professional broadcaster and a college professor, the author approaches the topic from both sides: from what the student hopes to gain and what the intern site wants to gain. She provides various valuable perspectives: student assessments on their internship experiences, case studies of those who have turned their internships into careers, and interviews with internship site coordinators.
