- Have you found a great mentor? If so, what makes him/her great? Have you learned anything new about the industry?
Everyone on TV One was very welcoming and open to talk with me which made it feel like everyone was my mentor. Any time I had any downtime I could roam around the office and go into any open door for advice. This allowed me to learn about the industry from many sides and parts of the company. It allowed for me to get a feel for what I do and dont want to do in the future.
Being a part of their internship program they assigned me with a mentor within the company. Though she wasnt in my department I was able to learn a lot about her department and we had a lot in common. I also was assigned an amazing mentor through the T. Howard Foundation who worked at the Smithsonian Channel. I really enjoyed bonding with them over the summer!
