What It’s Actually Like
WWE’s intern experience is hands-on, challenging and totally worth it. The internship aims to be a personalized experience that will truly benefit you in your future career. Can you dig it? “Interns should be ready to learn and use real skills and not just sit in a cubicle. They actually do project-based work.” –Tara Smith, WWE’s Director of Cooperate Talent
Cool Stuff You Get To Do
What you’ll be doing varies from department to department. You may be working on the Special Olympics or helping create the next WWE video game. Whatever you do, you’ll have a lot of responsibility and even more creative liberty. “The interns are such an important part of our system that they create projects that they can truly stand behind and speak about.” –Tara Smith, WWE’s Director of Cooperate Talent
What You’ll Learn
Some universal skills you’ll learn will be working under the pressure of deadlines, collaborating with a team and presenting in front of some real important people. Interns in the past have been given the opportunity to make presentations to the CMOs of WWE’s partner companies.
