THE MEGA LIST: Everything You Need to Score an Internship



Planning on applying for competitive Summer internships at esteemed companies like ABC, Viacom, Disney, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal, etc?

Well the time is NOW. 

I know it seems early, but most of the top companies (Viacom/ NBC/ ABC/ Discovery) have opened their applications. As we get further into the semester, more companies will follow.

But don't wait until then to apply!

In my experience, the sooner you apply- the better chance you have! This is because HR departments at the studio-level start in one department, interview/hire those interns, then go on to the next department. So let's say you want to work in the development department and you apply in August, but that department has already interviewed for potions. That means, you won't get contacted or considered for the Development department. 

No Experience Required is here to help with a handy dandy MEGA LIST of previous blog posts.

APPLICATIONS:
