Being an intern at Salt and Light

January 19, 2017
At some point in our life, we have to face the daunting idea of taking on an internship. Some of us go through several internships before we even get close to what we think is best for us to pursue. The cool thing about internships is that, for the most part, you can make them what you want!
Sure, there are internships out there where your main responsibility is to get Starbucks for everyone in the morning and to pick up McDonald's for them for lunch, but there are also many places that can offer you much more. If you tell your supervisor what your goals for the position are and what skills you want to gain from the experience, they will delegate whatever tasks are applicable to your goals and objectives for you.
Salt and Light is one of those places that offers you more. I have been an intern for Salt and Light for almost half a year now, and I can say that I’m thoroughly enjoying my experience here. I am able to participate in the many aspects of television production, such as attending shoots and interviews, hands-on experience transcribing and closed-captioning, and well as set construction and dismantling. One of the best experiences is the fact that I am able to work in such a positive environment with friendly people. In my opinion, this is one of the number one things necessary to create a successful workplace, and Salt and Light is exactly that for me.
