    Three phone interviews before offer, about a month between them. Operates as rolling acceptance--I finished the hiring process before the formal deadline to apply even passed, so apply early.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CBS News (Washington, DC) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Interns are a different story with CBS, felt like they just hired anyone. Told them about my previous experiences in broadcasting and why I wanted to work for them. The hardest question was "who anchors the cbs evening news?" -- you'd be surprised how many people don't know that answer. The people who run the internship program are a little scattered (they have their own jobs too) and when you have a question it takes them a week or more to answer, just kind of frusterating.
