    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Viacom.

    Interview

    Phone interview, typical for entertainment internships, they look for someone they would like to spend a lot of time with above anything else! Important to be "in the know" when it comes to current entertainment news, TV shows, etc.
