The application process for summer 2022 internships has begun. Please see recording from the informational session with Mark Robinson here! Please note that you will need to use your UNC email/UNC portal to access the video. Please also note that this year the program will be open to Seniors only.
The Hollywood Internship Program is open only to Communication majors. To apply, please download the application and resume template below. Resumes are limited to one page, so condense your experiences/education into a concise document. Resumes should be written with the goal of working at a company rather than simply getting into the internship program. They should fill the page.
No high school experience should be on your resume unless you worked or performed on a feature film or network television series. For faculty references, you will not need letters of recommendation; simply include the names of Department of Communication faculty who are most familiar with your work or with whom you’ve had recent class experience. The application deadline for the summer 2022 internship is October 13, 2021 at 11:59 pm.
NEW this year! Submit an ONLINE APPLICATION via the portal below. After your submission, follow the instructions on the application confirmation page to sign up for a 10 minute interview with new Hollywood Internship Program Director, David Merritt. Interview dates will be on Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th. Application portal is open!
Internships take place with companies doing business in the most competitive arena in the world: the entertainment industry. These companies are not in the business to teach. You have to learn on the run and by osmosis! While in the program, you will work firsthand with those doing the job you are interested in pursuing, find out where your interests really lie and learn what it takes to succeed.
The typical length of internship is determined to some extent by the student, but the time frame is June to August. Many students have used the program’s networking opportunities and class information to score a job in the industry after their internship ended.
Past internships have included placement at:
- Universal Studios
- Paramount Studios
- Warner Brothers Studio
- Lion’s Gate Studio
- Marvel Studios
- NBC network
- CBS network
- USA network
- It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (TV show)
- King of the Hill (TV show)
Application deadline: October 13, 2021 at 11:59 pm | Interview Dates on November 5th and 6th
