This summer, I am participating in an internship program with CBS/ CW Philly.  Although I am assigned to the Sales Department, I can still spend time in other departments to learn more about how each one contributes to the television station.  As an intern, I have to take the initiative to ask questions or if there is a project that I can complete, otherwise I am left without any work.  So far, I have spoken with employees from the Traffic, News, Creative Services, Business, Public Affairs, and Research Departments, in addition to the national and local sales offices.  I am looking forward to helping out at the Price Is Right Casting Call this Tuesday June 25 at Parx Casino.  Over the past few weeks, I have been attending the sales team meetings. This internship is a great networking and learning experience for me.  It is interesting to see how current trends, such as NJ Senatorial Elections and the US Open, affect the station’s efficiency and the types of clients that are approached.  I am determined to pursue a career as a marketing analyst or media planner.  I would rather strategize ways to deliver an advertising message than deal directly with clients.  I also enjoy coordinating events and working in the media.
