We look for star interns, students with a bright, positive attitude, intelligence, and potential. Other key qualities appreciated in our best interns are commitment, motivation, organization, responsibility, and professionalism. In addition, they are hardworking, personable, outgoing, fun, energetic and friendly, and therefore make a good fit and contribute to the great work atmosphere of our office. Candidates should be entering their junior or senior year of college. We offer the opportunity to observe, learn, ask questions, and be integrally involved in the production. Many former interns who demonstrated talent, interest, desire and ability to contribute to the success of the show have been hired for staff positions. If you excel, and we have no current openings at the time of your graduation, we will be pleased to do whatever we can to help you find your way in the industry. The goal of the program is to expose you to all aspects of production so you can determine your own abilities and interests, and pursue your first career position having acquired knowledge, understanding, and confidence through your experience at The Late Late Show.
