After a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WSLS 10 will resume our internship program during the Fall 2021 semester.
The GMG Internship Program is a paid program intended to augment the educational development of those studying for careers in broadcasting. The program provides structured opportunities coupled with appropriate supervision, evaluation and feedback for students enrolled in institutions of higher learning to gain experience in a station's day-to-day operations.
1. Learning objectives will be developed when considering a student internship opportunity. The program will require clear job duties that address learning objectives or a defined project scope that demonstrates how the learning objectives for each individual will be met.
2. The station Business Manager and the appropriate department head are responsible for determining and maintaining appropriate limits as to the number of interns accepted. Too many interns in a department or in the station at any one time will negate the value of the program as a learning experience and will impair the station's ability to exercise essential supervision.
3. Interns are classified as temporary employees and will be paid an hourly rate. They will not be entitled to any other benefits. Students should also receive college credit for internship participation.
4. Interns cannot work more than 20 hours per week. Each intern's hours will need to be tracked accordingly.
