NATURE AND SCOPE
WSVN (Sunbeam Television Corporation) is pleased to offer a program of internship assignments to a limited number of qualified college students. Our internships are non-paid and will be for college credit only. Internships coincide with each particular school’s term, however, they should not be less than 6 weeks and no longer than 12 weeks. Students will be expected to work approximately 15-20 hours per week. Assignments are designed to supplement classroom study with actual hands-on television experience, as students participate in special projects under the supervision of our professional staff. Interns are normally assigned to our News Department and assignments are scheduled throughout the year. Interns receive no financial remuneration and ARE NOT in any way employees of WSVN. Participation in the program does not obligate WSVN to offer employment to the intern at any future time.
Candidates for internship assignments are selected without regard to age, sex, race, religion or national origin. Candidates must be college students majoring in communication or journalism, and must be available to spend a minimum of 15 hours per week in our station, for a minimum of one semester, quarter or summer session. Admission to the program is competitive, as more students may apply each term than we can accommodate. Decisions on admission to the program are made by our management staff, based primarily on academic achievement, verification of internship (“For Credit”), and recommendations from faculty members and previous employment.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE AND REQUIREMENTS
Interested candidates should submit an internship application along with verification from school, which authorizes them to internship for college credit, a copy of their resume and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. Please send to:
