Dreaming of a career in TV?
Featured Events | Oct 13, 2011 | admin
Students are invited to join a select group that will learn — from the best in the TV world — about the “business of the silver screen.” Fordham alumnus James Leddy has arranged for Gabelli students to take a tour of the Rockefeller Center studio on October 19, which will be followed by an information session about the NBCUniversal Internship Program. Students in the group will hear from current employees of NBCUniversal, known around the network as NBCU, about various areas of the business.
Here is information that NBCU provided for us, in the company’s own words, about the internship program:
NBCU looks for students who are committed and passionate about a career in the media/entertainment industry through experiences in their major studies, college clubs/organizations, prior media-based internships, or prior work experience. We prefer to see students with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and community involvement/leadership.
- Enrolled in an associate’s degree, undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college or university
- 18 years or older and current sophomore standing or above
- Able to receive academic credit from a college or, in lieu of this, a letter of support from the university
- Commit to a recommended 2-3 days per week
- Must be authorized to work in the U.S.
NBCUniversal’s internship opportunities give students real world experience and exposure to one of the world’s leading media and entertainment companies in the development, production, and marketing of entertainment. Internships are the perfect way to gain experience and training while learning what a career at NBCUniversal might hold in store for an individual.
Interns produce tangible results as they begin building their professional networks. We offer opportunities throughout all of our divisions including TV, Pictures, Cable Networks, Home Entertainment, Digital Media and Corporate groups. Positions relate to marketing, publicity, sales, development, finance, production, information technology, media, on-line, consumer products and human resources.
