"GREAT!"Dec 9, 2019

Current Intern - Intern Marketing

I have been working at Ask Applications

Pros

really nice people great atmosphere

Cons

location, cannot think of anything else

Former Intern - Investigative Intern

I worked at Consumer Reports

Pros

Incredible mentors with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. The intern program is well-organized and encourages growth + definitely facilitates potential job opportunities.

Cons

You can go hours (or a full day) without much work – you have to ask for assignments, which can be to your benefit if you're really eager to show your strengths and potential. Don't be afraid to... ask for work! Ask to sit in on meetings and be part of editorial meetings.
