    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with a coordinator and a director. Very informal. Was wearing a suit and felt overdressed. Asked why I was interested in social media, favorite movies, etc. Got the feeling this position was more personality-based than skills based - as in, they were looking for someone who would click with the team. The coordinator had previously had that internship, so that does seem to encourage the idea that these internships could have potential for a full-time paying job.
