Campus to Career: Thanks for speaking with us about your experience as an intern and full-time employee, Chuck. Can you tell us a bit about your background and education?
CJ: I attended North Carolina A&T State University for my bachelor’s degree, and then went to New York University (NYU) for graduate school. I interned at Viacom while studying at NYU, and immediately knew this was exactly the place for me to start my career.
Awesome! What drew you to Viacom?
Growing up, I had always felt so connected to all of Viacom’s brands. Each has impacted me at a different stage of life, and I was so ready to work for a company with that kind of reach.
For me, the entertainment industry – Viacom specifically – embodied the New York City dream. I couldn’t wait to get my foot in the door.
