George Contaldi: I’ve been at The Dr. Oz Show
since I graduated from faculty in 2017. I started on the present as a receptionist.
This position slowly grew right into a reception/govt assistant place. I then
served as a manufacturing assistant for 2 years and I grew to become an affiliate producer this previous
season.

Always be keen to assist and donate your time. Don’t
be turned off by an unpaid internship. You will not be getting paid monetarily,
however you might be getting paid by gaining expertise, rising your data, and
constructing connections. I’ve had my fair proportion of unpaid internships and a few of
them already paid off. Others might repay later down the highway.
