About Nickelodeon NICKternship Program

Love Cartoons? So do we! An internship at Nickelodeon can launch you on an exciting, fun-filled career in children's entertainment. When people think about an internship, they envision getting coffee, running errands, and slaving away behind a copy machine where everyone knows you as the "intern". Fortunately, there is still hope out there, and that is at Nickelodeon Studios in Burbank, CA! Here, we call our interns "Nickterns" and if you get coffee, it will be for yourself!
