Agency Internships: If You Dare

So you want an internship at an agency?

You are ready to be brutalized, yelled at, and formed into the perfect (ruthless) entertainment professional?

Yes? Good for you!

Agency internships are hard. At times it may even seem like you're banging your head on a brick wall. However, they are a great addition to your resume, allow you into a huge networking network (UTA job list, anyone?), and agency experience is the #1 requirement of industry-related jobs. Might as well start now, right?

If you are sure, I mean really sure, that an agency internship is for you- here's the deal:


CAA

Interns will spend the first week of the internship in the mailroom. The remaining time will be spent working on projects with their assigned department. Interns will also be able to participate in a variety of programs and events throughout the internship.
