    Great internship experience

    I have been working at Newsday

    Pros

    It was a place that really cared about its interns- we were pointed to great housing basically across the street from the building. Weekly intern dinners with awesome reporters and editors. Loved the free bagel Saturdays. I had a great relationship with my two main editors, and got good feedback and good assignments.

    Cons

    None. Really had a great experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring even more interns each summer!

    Interview Details

    After submitting clips online and calling for info, I was contacted and flown in for a tryout that lasted for three days. There was no taking me out to meals or anything, no socializing, just writing and working. But all my pieces ended up in the paper and I was hired.
