DreamWorks Logo

Unless you go to see fewer movies than I do, then you know about Dreamworks. On the animation side they’ve done Shrek, Antz, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and more. On the film side they’ve done Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, American Beauty, Gladiator, Old School, Transformers, and many more. They make great movies, and they’ve been very successful. It’s no surprise considering they were started by media moguls Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen. If you don’t recognize their logo, then you probably shouldn’t be looking for a internship in the entertainment industry. An internship at DreamWorks is a dream come true for many college students, so let’s look at how you can land one.

We’ve catered to the PBS junkies before – we’ve covered internships at PBS and at WTTW11 in Chicago – and we’re going to do it again today. WGBH is a non-profit PBS affiliate based out of Boston that also happens to be the “single largest producer of PBS prime-time and online programming.” They started out by broadcasting the Boston Symphony Orchestra over the radio in 1951, but they’ve expanded to television and the web since. It’s really amazing how much of PBS’s programing comes out of WGBH. One of my all-time favorites was ZOOM, which is a little embarrassing to admit, since I was a bit old to be watching it at the time. Another interesting thing about WGBH that I picked up from Wikipedia is that they’re “considered a leader in services for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, blind, or visually impaired.” WGBH actually “invented television closed captioning, audio description (Descriptive Video Service), and created the Rear Window Captioning System for films.” As you can see, WGBH is an innovator not just in public television, but in all media, and probably a great place to work.

WTTW11 Logo

Yesterday we wrote about The Cleveland Foundation’s Internships because they asked us to (and the internships looked great). Today we’re writing about internships at WTTW11, a local PBS station in Chicago, because one of their former interns e-mailed us to let us know that he highly recommended interning with them. We’ve looked at internships at PBS and we’ve also looked at internships with American Documentary before, so today’s internships should be similar to those. That’s because WTTW11 is a major local PBS affiliate that produces a number of its own shows. They have some major projects going on, and they need lots of interns to help out. They work on both local and national productions, and both are of impressive quality. This isn’t some tiny tv station – they’re producing shows that can be seen across all PBS stations (in the past they’ve produced classics like Lamb Chop’s Play Along and The Frugal Gourmet).

Wiredset Logo

Yesterday we told you you about Trendrr’s internships, and while we were researching them, we stumbled upon the fact that their parent company, Wiredset, also offers internships. We considered cramming Wiredset and Trendrr’s internships into one post, but we thought that Wiredset looked cool enough to merit its own post. Wiredset is a digital marketing agency, which means that they offer services in four areas – online marketing, web production, measurement and metrics, and strategic consulting. Considering the fact that Wiredset’s client list includes Apple, ESPN, Comedy Central, MTV, and Microsoft, they must be pretty good at what they do. I can vouch that they certainly have their finger on the pulse of the web. Wiredset’s CEO Mark Ghuneim e-mailed me 7 minutes (seriously) after I posted about Trendrr to thank me for the post. That’s awesome.

Ars Nova

Ars Nova Logo

Figuring out what you’re going to do after school is scary. If you’re an artist (of any kind), figuring out what you’re going to after school is absolutely terrifying. Why is that? Because to be successful in the arts, you need to take risks. Nobody enjoys painters, musicians, or actors who play it safe. People want art to push their limits. Ars Nova is New York City’s “premier hub for emerging artists and new work.” They encourage young people to push the limits of art, and they do so by giving them a place to perform and by “developing and producing eclectic theater, comedy and music to feed today’s popular culture.” If you’re a performing artist, then Ars nova might be a place that you want to look at as you plan your future. If you’re not a performing artist, but love the performing arts, then you might want to consider an internship with Ars Nova.

Sunny day… Sweepin’ the clouds away… On my way to where the air is sweet… Can you tell me how to get… How to get an internship at Sesame Street? Sesame Workshop is “a nonprofit educational organization making a meaningful difference in the lives of children worldwide by addressing their critical developmental needs.” How do they do that? By producing Sesame Street, of course. You may not realize how much work and research has gone into making Sesame Street the educational powerhouse that it is. They have a well defined process that is the key to consistently addressing educational needs.

MashON Logo

You know how sometimes you know that other people will find something to be cool even though you have no idea why? Yeah, it’s called middle school (and high school, and college, and life). Today’s company, MashON, is one of those for me. I don’t really understand why MashON is a cool company, but I know that some of you will be totally into it. Since I don’t really get it, I’m going to use MashON’s own words to tell you about the MashON Platform, which is:

an interactive suite of online tools which allows users to create and share their own digital stories, e-cards, comic books and graphic novels by combining their personal photos, music, videos and narration to create their own unique personalized story. The result is a rich media, digital comic creation which can instantly be shared with friends and syndicated across the web and on their favorite social networks.

Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum Logo

If you’ve been paying attention over the past few weeks, you may have noticed that I recently moved to Chicago. I’m trying to make a list of things to do and places to see, and one of the attractions that I’m excited to visit is the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. It’s exactly what you’d expect a nature museum to be – they have butterflies, praying mantises, and water snakes. They have all kinds of exhibitions and special programs that include daily animal feedings. It looks like a wonderful day to visit, and it also looks like a fantastic place to have an internship. And in case you were wondering Peggy Notebaert is the wife of Richard Notebaert, the CEO of Qwest, who donated $5 million to the construction of the museum with the stipulation that it be named after her (we really had to dig to find that).

Best Week Ever

Best Week Ever Logo

From Wikipedia: “In its recounting of the events of the past week, Best Week Ever has been seen as a sign of the short attention span of millions of Americans.” I would have waited longer to include that tidbit in this post, but I figured that since I’m targeting people with short attention spans today, I better cut to the chase. Best Week Ever is a VH1 television show that is on every Friday at 11 PM, but it’s also a blog. Both the show and the blog are filled with comedic takes on the latest gossip and pop culture. Are you still with me? Just making sure. If you’ve seen I Love the 80s, you’ll be familiar with the format of the television show, and if you want to know more about the blog, well check out

Seventeen Logo

Despite the fact that I may have been seventeen years old at one time, I have never read Seventeen. Ok, I may have looked at an issue or two, but just to figure out what the heck was going on inside the heads of teenage girls. I always thought that Seventeen was a funny name for the magazine, because it seems like it’s not actually intended for girls who are or have been seventeen, but instead for girls who want to be seventeen (the secret is that all you have to do is stay alive, and you’ll get there). Anyway, you probably know the magazine, and if you don’t, go pick up a copy and check it out. I’m not going to pretend that I know enough to tell you much more about the magazine.

Island Press

Island Press Logo

It’s hard to find an internship when you have so many different interests. You often have to pick one area to focus on and go with it. You can’t, for example, get an internship in marketing with a focus on environmentalism in the publishing industry, can you? Actually, you can. Island Press is a non-profit publisher that prides itself on being a provider of the best new ideas in environmentalism and a trusted source for information and solutions relating to the health of our planet. Every year Island Press publishes “40 new books on such vital topics as conservation biology, marine science, land conservation, green building, sustainable agriculture, climate change, and ecological restoration.” That’s not all that they do though, Island Press’ slate of expert authors and scientists also “host conferences, teach courses, and speak in the community on relevant environmental issues.” They’re an organization that is committed to keeping the world a good place to live, and they’re doing it through one of my favorite mediums – books.

Fig Media Incorporated Logo

Are you always the guy or girl in charge of the music whenever your fraternity/sorority/house/dorm throws a party? Or are you always responsible for editing the video or doing the designs in our group projects? If you’re either of these two and always the life of the party, then a part-time internship with Fig Media Incorporated might be a great way to spend some of your time this or next semester. Fig Media is a Chicago based creative agency that offers deejay, photography, and video services. They’re all about making events awesome, and then providing media that allows you to remember how awesome they were for many years after.

Brant Publications

by on September 30, 2008

It’s not too uncommon for us to have trouble scrounging up details about a company’s internships despite the fact that we know that they have them; however, today’s situation is pretty unusual. We’re having no trouble finding information on internships with Brant Publications, but we’re having a heck of a time gathering information about the actual company. It’s not that they’re some stealth stage startup or a small boutique firm that nobody has ever heard of. They are the publisher of three well known magazines – The Magazine Antiques, Interview, and Art in America, but they don’t have a corporate website (or logo). Apparently, they do have a dress code, though. Despite the lack of publicly available information about Brant Publications online, we still think that their internships look pretty cool. If you’re dying to work in publishing or around the arts, you’ll probably be pretty excited about the internship opportunities that you’ll find below.

Internships at the Mystery Company

Brant Publications is currently looking to fill internships in Office Services, Human Resources, Advertising (Art in America), Advertising (The Magazine Antiques), Advertising (Interview Magazine), Art (Interview Magazine), Editorial (Interview Magazine), Editorial (The Magazine Antiques), Mailroom, Accounting, Fashion, and Production. All of the internships are located in New York City, and many have multiple openings. The job descriptions for each internship are pretty sparse, but the job titles are specific enough that you should get some idea of what they’ll expect you to be doing. The internship listings don’t say so explicitly, but we get the vibe that these are unpaid internships. You can apply online through the Magazine Publishers of America website where the links above will lead you. It’s not completely clear whether these are Fall, Spring, or Summer internships, but it seems that Brant hires a lot of interns, and probably does so year round.

Causecast Logo

By featuring one internship every day, we like to think that we put internship related information in an easily digestible format. Causecast is trying to make finding cool causes easier by featuring ten every month. That’s just the start of it, though. They have a community/social networking aspect, and they also link non-profits with brands and celebrities. For exapmle, Generation Rescue is supported by Jenny McCarthy and sponsored by, well, it looks like Causecast is still working on the sponsorships. They use the power of Web 2.0 to collect a ton of relevant information on organizations, and they even provide an easy way to donate to the causes of your choice. You can see what the total donations from the Causecast community are to date, which is also cool. The community, so far, is still pretty small, but Causecast’s website is excellent and will certainly generate a lot more interest in the future.

Carnegie Hall Logo

We’ve written about Andrew Carnegie’s generosity before on One Day, One Job – we discussed entry level jobs with the Carnegie Corporation of New York back in May. It is just one of many non-profit organizations that bears Carnegie’s name. Another is Carnegie Hall, which Andrew Carnegie built because of his love for music. It’s an architecturally beautiful building in the heart of Manhattan with a storied history and amazing acoustics. It’s also host to approximately 250 performances every year. Carnegie Hall is the “ultimate destination for music lovers across the world,” according to Sanford Weill, the Hall’s Chairman of the Board, and it’s hard to argue with him. Carnegie Hall is all about music at its best, and if you believe strongly in the importance of music, you should consider an internship at Carnegie Hall.

September just came out of nowhere, and now it seems like students across the country have already started their Fall internships. Since interning in the fall is usually a little more casual than a Summer internship, there’s still a good chance that you can pick up a last minute fall internship in the next few weeks. We’re going to start shifting our focus towards Winter, Spring, and even Summer internships, but if we see great Fall opportunities, we’ll be sure to post about them. That’s what we’re doing today. Bark Bark is a commercial production firm that is looking for Fall interns in the Atlanta area.

StoryCorps Logo

I bet that you have some friends whom you can listen to for hours – friends who can straight up tell a story. Whenever they speak, people listen. I bet that you also have friends (or quite possibly professors) who can make any story boring, no matter how good the facts of the story actually are. Storytelling is an art, but it’s also a skill that can be learned. It’s essential to making friends, getting internships, and persuading people. Everybody loves a good storyteller, and that’s why StoryCorps, an independent non-profit, is focused on honoring and celebrating people’s lives through listening. Here’s the story on StoryCorps and their internship opportunities.

Are you a superhero whose alter ego happens to be looking for an internship? Just for cover, of course, because superheroes don’t actually need to work. You’ve managed to keep it quiet through a couple years of college, but you need something to do between classes besides beating up villains and saving the world. Why not intern at the last place that they’d ever expect you to work – Marvel Enterprises. It’s so obvious that it’s completely unobvious. In all seriousness if you’re not familiar with Marvel, they’re “one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies.” They made their name in comic books, but they’ve expanded into tv, movies, toys, video games, and more.

American Documentary

P.O.V. Logo

It seems to me that most college students reduce their TV watching when they get to college – at least the ones who don’t have cable in their dorm room. There are too many other things that you either have to do or want to do, so watching tv moves down the list. Still, communal dorm TVs get pretty crowded during primetime. I mostly used the TVs for watching sports, and trying to watch a Yankees game on a “good” TV night often required that I walk down a few floors to find a group of fellow fans who were already watching. Not once in my TV hopping did I come across any of my peers watching something with educational value. Had I been hoping to watch something like the shows produced by American Documentary, I probably would have been out of luck. If you are one of the kids who usurps the communal TVs and ensures that you get your weekly fix of PBS, then an internship with AmDoc might be a great way for you to spend part of your Fall. If you’re one of those kids watching primetime TV or ignoring TV for the better things in college life, but you still love PBS, you’d also make a great intern at AmDoc.

Everest Production

Everest Production Logo

There’s a reason that the vast majority of YouTube videos don’t look nearly as good as even the simplest local news broadcast – they lack production. They’re still amusing, but YouTube content isn’t typically something that you want to sit down and watch for a couple hours on you HDTV. Now, if you’re the type of student who would make a good intern at Everest Production, you probably already know this – and you’re probably one of the few people who is putting high quality content out on YouTube. For those who don’t know what a company like Evererest Production does, they provide services such as Video Editing, Dubbing, Motion Graphics, Music, and a lot more. Oh yeah, and they’ll create the movie and shoot it too. Ok, so we don’t know much about production either, but we do know that Everest Production’s projects look pretty darn good. If you’re like us, and don’t have a clue about Production either, don’t stop reading – Everest Production has internships in Marketing and IT too.

Search for Common Ground

At some point in your life, you’ve probably had a conflict – an argument with your parents, siblings, roommates, or others. Humans inherently have conflicting interests, but that doesn’t mean that common ground can’t be found. Search for Common Ground is a non-profit organization that “works to transform the way the world deals with conflict – away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative problem solving.” Sometimes it may seem impossible, but most conflicts can be resolved peacefully through with the right methods. Search for Common Ground uses its 5 core principles to encourage attitudes that resolve conflicts across the world. These are: Conflict is neither negative nor positive; Conflict can be transformed; Finding common ground; Peace is a process; and Humankind is interdependent. If you want to know more about Search for Common Ground’s approach, you can take their Guided Tour.

Revision3 Logo

If you’ve been reading for more than about a week, you’ve probably noticed that we spend a lot of time using social media to find exciting internships for you. It’s still not the best way to find employment opportunities, but it’s certainly the most interesting and the most engaging. Just look at Revision3, the Internet TV station. They’re blogging (and their Interns are blogging, and their interns have their own blogs too), Twittering, YouTubing, Digging, Flickring (Interns on Flickr too), and Facebooking, of course. They’re probably doing a lot more too. Revision3 is an Internet startup, so they kind of have to embrace social media, but the vast amount of information that they provide about themselves is an amazing recruiting tool. If you have any interest in working at Revision3, you’ll find everything that you need to get you even more excited about sending them an internship application. Since you can dive into Revision3’s social media profile yourself, we’re going to give you a quick rundown of the Fall internships that they’re offering and let you continue the rest of the research on your own.

The idea for today’s post came straight from a One Day, One Job reader. She graduated a few months ago and has been looking for entry-level jobs in event planning since. She told us about one company that she was really excited about, but asked us not to post about it until she was either working for them or had landed another job. Even though we’re talking about internships here, we wanted to hold off on posting. Now that she recently landed a job doing exactly what she wants to do (big congratulations to her), we’re free to tell you about hip consulting group, a boutique event management firm. Their site says that they offer internships to students in marketing, hospitality management, and graphic design, although it doesn’t say when these internships are offered.

My experience with Philadelphia goes about as far as I95, the Philadelphia airport, and what I saw on Boy Meets World. Ok, I also have fond memories of watching the 1993 World Series at a friend’s house because my parents had decided to go without tv for a few years. I think you get the point; I’m not much of a resource when it comes to Philadelphia, but is. That’s why they get over a million pageviews every day, which makes them the #1 website for the region.

They make it a bit hard to find out how to apply, so that’s what we’re going to focus on today.

Since we had so much fun writing about internships for the literary minded yesterday, we’re going to do it again today. If you are a book lover, the type who entered his or her college’s book collection contest – the type who has a multi-page Amazon wishlist (yes, I linked to mine so you can buy me a gift), then an internship in publishing is quite possibly a dream come true. Penguin Group offers internships year round, but they make the information about their internships a bit hard to find. We’ve dug up all we can find, so that you don’t have to wander around their site looking for information on how to apply.

I was 10 when the first season of Road Rules came out. I had seen the Real World before, but it didn’t really appeal to me. Road Rules, on the other hand, was just about the coolest show ever to me. They had a Winnebago! I’m not sure if the show got worse as the seasons progressed, or if the cast just seemed way less cool as I approached them in age, but after a few seasons of watching both the Real World and Road Rules, I got bored. Still, you have to respect Bunim-Murray Productions for essentially creating reality tv. We’ve all now been desensitized to how revolutionary those shows were when they first aired. Now we have The Simple Life, Living Lohan, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Old Skool (all current BMP projects). It’s not the same, but that doesn’t mean that an internship with Bunim-Murray Productions won’t be an awesome experience.

Are you a news junkie? Do you write for your college newspaper? Have a radio show on your college station? Upload your own videos to YouTube? Whether you want to be behind the camera, in front of the camera, or in the editing room, CNN offers an excellent internship program that will get you familiar with working in television and the news. If you want to pursue a career in broadcast journalism, CNN is the place to start. The variety of internships that they offer provide phenomenal opportunities for hands-on experience and training.

Your TV20 Logo

As it gets later and later in the internship hunting season, you need to change the focus of your internship search to more local possibilities. There are still opportunities to get an internship half way across the country, fly in for interview, land the job, and spend the summer in a new city, but they’re dwindling quickly. That type of hiring process just doesn’t work well in May for Summer internships. As disappointing as it may seem, you might have to spend the summer living with Mom and Dad. What kind of local options do you have? It depends where you live. One option that is available in many locales is interning for a local tv station. Most areas have some form of local station, and these stations can always use interns. It’s not as glamorous as interning for a major network, but the experience can be much more hands on. One example of a local television station that is still hiring Summer interns is Your TV20 in San Francisco.

Procter & Gamble Productions

If watching soap operas is part of your daily internship search routine, then we really hope it’s because you’ve read our article on using television to find internships. If that is the case, then you’re not the only one who has put trashy tv shows to a strangely productive use for you. Back in the 1930’s Procter & Gamble created soap operas (then on the radio) to sell their soap. They realized that in most households the women bought the soap and also listened to the radio at home during the day. Out of that realization came one of the most brilliant marketing techniques ever created – radio/television programming tailored specifically for reaching a demographic with advertising. In 1952 the move was made to television, and since then Procter & Gamble Productions has been behind major television shows like Guiding Light and As the World Turns.
