    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Comedy Central in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a connection who passed my resume onto a producer in February and was contacted for an interview in June. It was an unexpected interview done on the phone which took a bout half and hour and was pretty normal. They asked about my past experience, a time I had to overcome difficulties, my ability to multi-task, and general things like that. I heard back a little over a month later and my start date was a month after that.

    The minimum that they require with fall internships is a 2 day commitment. I was given a little over a week to decide how many days a week I would intern. The overall internship is a 4 month period.

    Internship- Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Comedy Central in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    After sending my resume via the MTV Networks database, the interview started with HR emailing me to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview is very basic. They ask you about what you are interested in in school, and to tell them about some of the classes you are taking and how it interests you. After that, they will tell you 3 openings that are available in various departments. You choose one, and they will email you with the contact information of the manager of that department in order to set up an interview date. The interview can pretty much be anything since there are so many departments. For me, I interviewed at Comedy Central's Finance department so the interview was pretty formal. They really like knowing that you are taking relevant courses, and just ask you about what you do in school. It's pretty lax. Remember to write a thank you letter-- they like that.

    Submitted my resume through the MTV internship website. HR contacted me and I had a phone interview with a recruiter. The woman discussed with me what type of internship I was looking for. She then told me what channels within MTV were hiring and asked me to rank them based on my preference. She contacted me the next day giving me the contact information of my potential supervisor who I then contacted. I met a few days later with him and two other members of the programming department. After the interview with them I had to submit a writing sample and have a phone interview with the vp of programming.
