Hi! I was an ESPN intern last summer, and it is definitely a competitive process. I would say start networking as early as possible and trying to make connections within the companies you are interested in. Also, make sure once you are in college to see if they have any partnership programs with ESPN that will help you meet with recruiters or attend networking events!

It's definitely competitive!! Internships are important they help you to establish a relationship with the organization you may want to eventually work and allows you to network. It can give you a competitive advantage when going after a job later.

Janae - Internships are typically awarded to college students. ESPN has a great internship program, once you are accepted into a school look on Disney's website to find out more information as to the criteria you will need in order to apply. Its normally during the summer when school is out.


Good luck!

Probably pretty competitive, do your research and try to get in any way you can. Use Google, other social media, literature, The Harvard Business Review for researching your topics of interest. See if you can find a professional or two in your area to set up a 30 minute meeting or conference call to ask questions, get insight and feedback. What would they have done differently, if they had known what profession they would end up with? People love to share their stories and it could help you avoid some early mistakes in your career.
