Incredible Summer Internship

Digital Security Services Intern (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Twentieth Century Fox as an intern for less than a year

ProsIf you have the opportunity to apply for an internship at 20th Century Fox, do so. I cannot stress this enough. The program is extremely well organized and was one of the greatest opportunities that I was able to experience. Take advantage of the special programs just for interns, such as breakfasts, lunchbag discussions, BBQs and a baseball game. Network with as many people as you are able to. Everyone that I met there was excited to share their career experiences and give as much advice as they could. I don't know of anyone who left their internship there on a negative light. The team I worked with did as much as they could to make me feel involved and make me feel valued during my time there.

ConsIt sounds cliche but I really can't think of any cons while working at 20th Century Fox.
