Intern Stories: Catherine Treyz '13 on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams

Position: Summer Intern at NBC Nightly News with Brian WilliamsLocation: New York City Description of what you did: I was a broadcast intern at Nightly News during Summer 2012, where I worked directly with producers on news and feature pieces for the evening newscast. Major at Dartmouth: English with concentrations on popular culture and British literature

1. What was the most satisfying about your work?

From the first day, I was relieved to realize that my internship would be different from those portrayed on television sitcoms — there were no coffee runs. Immediately, I became an active member of the newsroom team and was often responsible for meeting the same daily deadlines as producers, designers, writers, and reporters. During the first week, I was trained by media professionals on how to use specific video editing and logging programs. I further developed those skills throughout my internship, editing videos for NBCNews.com and previewing footage for news and Olympics pieces.

Although I was completing basic production tasks, it was truly awesome seeing even seconds of footage I logged and highlighted for producers appear on the national evening newscast. Luckily for me, as an Olympics aficionado, many of my assignments were completed in preparation for the London 2012 Summer Games. I also assisted producers and crew on a couple of on-location shoots, including a day spent in the Bronx filming the New York Yankees at their HOPE Week charity events. At the end of the summer, I was hired as a “runner” for NBC and MSNBC at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the hands-on production experiences continued. Overall, I was introduced to the truly multi-faceted field that is news media. The career options are endless.

2. What’s the best way to enter the broadcast journalism field? Any essential elements of preparation?

First, you have to like news. Whether you prefer broadcast over print is not important, because there are skills, like writing, that overlap in both fields. But your job will be variably different each day given the nature of news. You have to embrace that nature and you have to like that nature. Secondly, some experience, whether it’s through a campus publication or previous internship(s), in news or media is certainly a plus. It makes the adjustment to a professional newsroom easier and exciting. Also, there will be certain takeaways: You can apply the skills you learn when you return to work with your campus groups or in future jobs.

With that being said, it’s also very important to have an open mind and thick skin. Professional producers and editors take the time to show you how they start and finish a piece. They also talk with you and review your own work, offering suggestions and edits to a web piece you’ve spent hours working on. Take those moments as learning experiences. Some of the more interesting conversations I had with producers were about just two seconds of footage we were considering.

3. What advice would you give to others seeking internships in this field?

Be willing to try something different. For instance, if you’re interested in an editorial internship but get a media design or business one, don’t necessarily turn it down. Your interests can change — and that’s a good thing. Chances are good that you’ll likely experience editorial aspects in a business or design environment as well, or vice versa. It’s an interdisciplinary field.

4. How has Dartmouth supported you in your career development?

At this internship, I noticed my liberal arts background come into play. Because of Dartmouth’s curriculum requirements and liberal arts emphasis, I have taken courses in many departments. I incorporated skills and knowledge from classes in several departments into my daily duties. Dartmouth classes and experiences have pushed me to think deeply, act resourcefully, and ask important questions. In July, when the Aurora, Colorado shootings occurred, the Nightly office was quickly reacting to the breaking news and changing reports. My coursework in media research, statistics, public policy, anthropology, and literature helped me efficiently assist producers and communicate with others throughout the country.

As I approach graduation, I also realize how important resources like Rauner Special Collections and Jones Media Center are in pursuing my career path. There you learn valuable research methods and how to use similar and sometimes the same software media and production companies use.

5. Is there anything else you would like to add?

Interning at NBC was a wonderful experience. In fact, I was sad to leave on my last day! I definitely suggest browsing the NBC Universal career site if you’re interested in news, entertainment, sports, business, marketing, law, and, well, just about anything! I met interns from different departments and we all only had positive things to say about our internships. Take a look and apply!

Intern Stories: Marina Villeneuve '13 on Newsday Internships

Position: Reporting Intern at Newsday Location: Melville, NY

Two sentence description of what you did: I reported and wrote breaking news, daily and enterprise articles about courts, crime and town politics for the Long Island desk.

Major at Dartmouth: Government

1. What was most satisfying about your internship? I love journalism because I get the chance to learn something new every day. I'm never stuck behind a desk for long periods of time — instead, the bulk of my time is spent talking to people and learning about their stories and perspectives. When I am behind a desk, I'm investigating longer-term pieces or crafting cogent ledes. Being a breaking news intern at Newsday means that I come to work with little to no idea about what I'll actually be doing, which is so exciting. What's most personally satisfying is that "aha" moment when the story comes together, and does so in a way that breathes life into an otherwise dry or complex issue.

2. What’s the best way to enter your field? Any essential elements of preparation? Networking: The world of journalism is super small. Everyone knows each other, which means networking is essential to both finding and ultimately landing internships and jobs. But, before you network, you need to have the skills and experience to back you up. Google your favorite journalists and use LinkedIn to see how they got where they are, and what sorts of skills helped them get there. Use the Dartmouth Alumni Network to search for journalists and ask for career advice.

Multimedia skills: It's also essential to be comfortable with photo/video/audio-editing software. That doesn't mean you have to be a professional, but you should be able to produce a multimedia package. Jones Media Center often has workshops on Photoshop and other softwares, and you can also access free tutorials on HTML and what not through sites like Lynda.

Clips: Still, internships alone aren't enough — it's the clips that you get at those internships are what will ultimately set you apart from other candidates. Have a wide variety of clips, from breaking news, to features, to analytical pieces across a wide variety of subject matter. Most places ask for three to five clips.

Internships: Internships are so essential, and media outlets nowadays really expect you to have at least one journalism internship before they'd even consider hiring you. Don't get hung up on "big name papers" — instead, look at the skills and experiences they picked up along their path and figure out ways to develop those skills yourself. Small papers/media outlets can often be even more formative experiences for young journalists as they often are able to help train journalists on a more personal level.

Applying to jobs/internships: Do your research before sending out your package of clips, cover letter, references and resume — think of it as your first assignment. Find out who are the recruiters at the media outlets you'd like to work for one day, and start working relationships with them. This means everything from sending them clips to updates on your career (but not constantly, of course). Keep in touch with editors at past papers you've worked at, as they can often give you good leads on jobs or let you know of a position opening up at that very paper! This is an example of ways that internships can lead to jobs. Send your package on — or preferably ahead of — deadline, figure out who to address it to, and make sure you have no awkward typos.

Job-training programs: Lastly, keep an eye out job training programs like the Los Angeles Times Metpro, NPR's Fellowship programs, Gannett Talent Development Program, the Atlantic Media Company's Fellowship program, etc. Also, think of journalism graduate school carefully. Think about what you want to get from J-school before you apply/enroll in a senior year haze.

3. What advice would you give to others seeking opportunities in this field? I'd highly recommend joining a journalism organization, like the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Society of Professional Journalists, Investigative Reporters and Editors, etc. Joining an organization (at a discounted student rate!) shows that you're seriously interested in becoming a better journalist. These groups host annual/biannual conferences featuring professional development workshops, mentoring programs, job fairs, etc.

These organizations also have chapters that offer get-togethers, student scholarships and internship opportunities, etc. I'd also recommend awesome journalism training programs like the Chips Quinn Scholars Program, The New York Times Student Journalism Institute, the Sports Journalism Institute, etc. While you're in school, seek out freelancing and stringing opportunities to keep your skills polished.

And lastly, don't be afraid to just ask questions and create your own opportunities. Last spring, I cold-called every D.C. news bureau and pitched myself. I landed an internship at a national wire service and developed several relationships with potential employers — including The Los Angeles Times, who hired me as a D.C. intern for this upcoming summer. You might feel like a weirdo, but as long as you know your goals for the internship and what you can contribute, you're gold. In the meantime, check out some tips on landing an internship, learn some data and business reporting skills (here's a list of bootcamps),  and make sure you have a professional social media presence. Oh, and seek Dartmouth funds to host unpaid journalistic opportunities.

Five tips from former Wall Street Journal reporter Joe Mathewson ’55 for students interested in journalism

“I’ve never met a bored journalist,” Medill School of Journalism professor and former Wall Street Picture of Joe Mathewson courtesy of 123People.comJournal reporter Joe Mathewson ’55 often tells students, noting that there are “no dull jobs and no dull days” in the field of journalism. While some people like to claim that journalism is a dying field, Mathewson rightly believes that it is simply evolving, and he wants students to know that journalism needs talented graduates with a passion for writing and a strong liberal arts background. With a number of grandchildren at the College, Mathewson is a regular visitor to Career Services and a mentor to students currently considering a career in journalism. Here, we’ve compiled Mathewson’s top five tips for students who have a passion for the written word and investigating the world around them.

  1. Journalism needs intellectually curious young graduates from a variety of academic backgrounds — sell your experience, no matter what it is! Whether you are a history or neuroscience or economics major, journalism needs you.
  2. Have a blog and credentials you can show people. Nothing speaks to your skills better than a thorough, well-organized set of clips. Make sure you can speak to why your previous experience, regardless of its direct relation to journalism, will help you succeed as a journalist.
  3. Don’t confine yourself to print. In this day and age, you need to have multiple skills — learn to shoot and edit video, take photographs, blog and manage social media. Wire services in particular are booming.
  4. Learn how to write about economics. The economy is the number one story around the world right now, and you will be a highly marketable employee if you know how to write about business, employment and interest rates.
  5. Familiarize yourself with the tricks of the trade — AP style, interview skills, journalistic ethics, etc. Do research for specific job and internship opportunities. If you’re applying for a job with the Associated Press, Bloomberg or Reuters, learn the verbs of attribution in business journalism.

Interested in pursuing job or internship opportunities in journalism? Make sure you’ve signed up on Dartboard to receive our regular blitzes about communications jobs! There are stories out there waiting to be told — are you going to be the one to tell them?

Intern Stories: Jonathan Gault '13 on New England Sports Network

Position: New England Sports Network, Intern, New Media Department Location: Watertown, MA

Short description of what you do: I wrote, edited and posted content to NESN.com. Often this would involve editing beat writers' articles, editing photos and videos and jumping on trends by producing either articles or photo galleries on hot topics in the world of sports.

Major at Dartmouth: English

1. What was most satisfying about your internship?

It was great to be able to write about sports and have an outlet for my opinions. I also learned a lot while researching content, particularly when I compiled Top 10 lists/photo galleries.

2. What advice would you give to others seeking opportunities in this field?

Read and write as much as you can. Those are the two best ways to make you a better writer, and being a good writer is the best way to get a job.

3. How has Dartmouth supported you in your career development?

Career Services looked over my resume and provided a letter of support for my internships.

4. What do you plan to do when you graduate?

I plan to work as a sportswriter at either a newspaper or a website.

5. What are you involved in at Dartmouth?

I am a member of the men's cross country and track and field teams, and I am the former sports editor of The Dartmouth. I spend a lot of my free time following sports, reading publications including Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine and The Boston Globe, as well as ESPN.com and Grantland.com.

Alumni Conversations: Dax Tejera '07, NBC News Producer

Over the next few months, we'll be featuring stories of Dartmouth alums. We kick off our series with this Q & A. (Hat tip to our intern Emily Fletcher '12 for conducting the interview.) Dax Tejera ’07

Position: Producer, NBC News Location: New York City

Short description of what you do: Produce a daily political news show for MSNBC, and travel around the country to cover breaking news events on a moment’s notice.

Major at Dartmouth: History/Government double major

1. What is most satisfying about your current work? 

My  colleagues and I are writing the first draft of history; we have a unique privilege to learn about things well before they become public.  The responsibility of getting it right and making it clear when it matters most is never lost to me.

2. What’s the best way to enter your field? Any essential elements of preparation?

You need to have some degree of experience before getting into the big leagues.  How that takes form is increasingly open-ended.  I tell Dartmouth students all the time that if they want to get into this business, all they need is a blog.  You need to prove you can tell a story. Obviously it helps if you get a real-world internship, or like me, work for The D.  But you can't go into this cold.  You have to prove you are tough, and that you have the stuff.  If not, employers will move on quickly.

3. What advice would you give to others seeking opportunities in this field?

Talk to everyone even remotely associated with media. In the end, it's a small world, and a conversation with someone you might not think is in the pipeline often leads you to exactly the right path. Keep up with the latest industry trends too. News and information are directly correlated with developments in technology — it affects how we disseminate the message. You have to stay current.

4. How has Dartmouth supported you in your career development?

Dartmouth connections got me my job and have fueled it along the way.  I got my foot in the door through a chance meeting with a Dartmouth alum who was a correspondent for NBC News.  After I joined the company, I had the opportunity to collaborate with him.  Life is a two-way street, and it doesn't surprise me that Dartmouth features prominently along the road.
