After reading the descriptions of each and every department in which they are hiring internships for, I believe that I will fit well inside of the Talent&Casting Department, Digital Media/Online Production, Development, and Production Departments. The Talent&Casting Department is in charge of booking talent for the channel and they must have video editing skills in Final cut pro, Avid, and Imovie. The Digital Media Department is in charge of the digital presence of shows they produce and work close with social media and blogging in order to bring in a bigger audience.
