My internship at CBC Radio absolutely exceeded my expectations. The application process was lengthy to say the least, but it was well worth it.
The environment was friendly and relaxed. People were happy to meet me and see what I could bring to the table. My producers challenged me, but also taught me the ropes.
I was able to put my audio, video and digital skills to great use while learning so many more. I often came in early and stayed late to have more time to learn (and make mistakes). The building, amenities and equipment were all state-of-the-art. I did not get any compensation, but the experience by itself was worth more than the money I would have made. I was able to establish connections with people there who will be vital in helping to further my career at CBC.
I’m happy to say that I’m freelancing for CBC right now!
