"The most invaluable and unique aspect of the Television Academy internship program is the variety of opportunities to learn from and connect with industry professionals and student peers. I met with executives throughout my host company, networked with professionals of all types in foundation events and workshops, and hung out with my fellow interns in my free time. I truly feel like this experience has given me a head start in my entertainment career."

"Without the Television Academy, I would not have found my dream job within six months of graduating, nor would I have made the life-long connections I now have. My internship allowed me to create a network of people in eight weeks that would have taken at least three years to make if I had moved to Los Angeles alone."

"Being with a cohort of students with unique lived experiences and who are interested in different fields in TV, created an environment where I was constantly learning. Having a community of alumni mentors who are enthusiastic to share their career journeys and genuinely rooting for me, has given me confidence to be on my A-game and bold with my career ambitions."
