Almost done my internship and I would do it again. At PHL17 you are responsible for yourself after given a specific task, i.e. the real workforce. But it’s a great opportunity to get to learn about other departments at the station, to ask questions and to give you real world experience. After I finish my work and there is nothing else Jeff Finken needs from me I ask other people if they need help or I go and explore. You get to meet people because you have to interact with them.
Not only have I learned from the research I have done but I have learned the operation of a TV station. I have seen how much more personal things can be when you don’t use technology, like filing and making tangible presentations.
Its just fun at PHL17 and they are happy to have you.
