If you do not live in the state the position is located, how do they interveiw you?
I am not sure. I once interned here as well and I believe some of the students were indeed from out of state, but I think we did a phone interview first, and then a scheduled in house interview that individuals had to relocate for.
I really cant remember, but one thing that sticks out is how passionate you are to work in the field of television. I also remember questions pertaining to how well can you conduct yourself in stressful situations.
There is no stressful part at all working for Viacom. When you love what you do and the great team you work with and the atmosphere is great.
