WCCB-TV College Student Internships

WCCB-TV offers non-paid internships for students who are currently enrolled in an accredited college/university and need the internship for college credit. Internships are available in our News Department and Digital Media Department (WCCB-TV's website). WCCB-TV does not provide living arrangements or any type of living expenses or transportation. Interns are not employees of WCCB-TV so therefore will not get benefits afforded WCCB-TV personnel.

Application Review/Interview

Upon receiving all of the completed paperwork your application will be reviewed. At that time if we find that you would be a good intern candidate, we will contact you via e-mail and set up a time that is convenient for you to come in to interview. The interview will be a one-on-one session and will include a brief tour of the station. The interview will not guarantee an internship. ONLY STUDENTS UNDER FINAL CONSIDERATION WILL BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY FOR INTERVIEWS.

NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE

With a limited number of intern slots available, applicants are not guaranteed an internship.

An internship with WCCB-TV does not guarantee employment; however a student may apply for opened positions once internships have been completed.

Guidelines

The prospective intern will read and agree to the Internship Guidelines as set forth by WCCB-TV. Internship Guidelines will be covered at the intern's interview.

Internship Schedule

Upon acceptance of an internship by the student, a schedule will be prepared that will cover the duration of the internship and will be approved by the intern. Once the schedule is set, the intern will adhere to the schedule as set forth in the Internship Guidelines.

Internship Evaluation

All interns will receive internship evaluations per their school guidelines by their immediate WCCB-TV supervisor. These evaluations will be copied and placed in the intern's file at WCCB-TV.
