ViacomCBS Insider Tip:

“We are looking for students that are passionate about the media industry and more specifically ViacomCBS brands. Make sure to highlight your most relevant experience on your resume and do your homework on the company prior to your interview. What you do in your free time is just as important to us as your coursework – so show off your extracurricular involvement and community service!”

“Avoid typos, paragraph format and too much blank space on your resume. Always keep your resume to 1 page only. And don’t tell your interviewer that you’re not familiar with our content because you don’t watch TV.”
