I loved my internship and had the chance to learn so many new skills, all while meeting tons of new people. Be eager to learn and be personable — everyone likes that. But don’t be annoying and require constant supervision. Whenever it slows down in the newsroom, learn how to find and make your own work to show to your producers and supervisor.

Also, having the chance to spend a few days in different parts of CBC is completely worth it. The more exposure the better, because you learn new things and meet new people, becoming more dynamic as a result. CBC is accommodating for interns who are eager to work and go to different areas in the building.
