    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at WGN America (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty typically internship interview. They asked about my university journalism experience, if I knew video editing software (Premiere, etc.) and why I wanted to get into broadcasting. They really like it if you say you're more interested in producing as opposed to being an on-air reporter, since that's what you focus on with the internship.
