Friends, Fun, & a lot of Free Food! The Best Internship Around!

My favorite aspect is how much the company as a whole valued us as interns. More than half of the employees working at the studio were former interns so they really took the time to get to know us and to teach us. It's great how many intern events we had during our time in addition to our internship there were workshops, classes, and TONS of networking events. They really made us feel special and part of the team.

Downers

There was so much going on outside of the internship that I found it hard to juggle it with another internship & classes. But I loved everything about it!

Advice to Potential Interns

They really want people who will become a part of the nick family so always go in with a positive attitude and an open mind!

Downers

- Started a bit too late in the semester. I would have loved to have started earlier in January.

Advice to Potential Interns

- Take advantage of informational interviews as soon as you start. The more people you meet and learn from, the better you understand the company and maybe determine what kind of role you truly want to have in this industry. You also meet great people with interesting stories!

Advice to Management

- Maybe slightly higher pay? But honestly, with the amount of programs geared towards interns and exciting events throughout the semester, it was not a big deal. However, I could see how for students who struggle financially how a slightly higher pay could help them out.

Nickelodeon does a fantastic job of creating a real "work family" vibe at all levels of the organization, and the internship program here feels like a "welcoming in." The studio really encouraged me as an intern to meet with as many people as possible - artists, producers, show creators - and make as many connections as I could. It didn't feel like anyone, not even Senior Vice Presidents, was too important to take time to meet with interns. The opportunity to do practice art tests for current series gave me more of an understanding of what I would be exposed to in future job applications, as well, and got me face to face with art directors for critical feedback on my work. Additionally, as a production intern, I was given an inside look at what goes into making cartoons, and learned valuable lessons that I'm using day-to-day in my current role as a Production Assistant.

Downers

The length of the internship is too short! I'm glad I made it back to Nickelodeon as a full-time employee, but I know some people in more isolated departments may have a harder time inherently meeting new people outside of their circle.

Advice to Potential Interns

APPLY. If you're an animation student, this is absolutely hands-down one of the best places to start your career.

Happy, Helpful, Hardworking: Intern Learns That It Really Is The People That Make a Company Great

The people! The people at Nickelodeon are so unbelievably nice and are really to help you in any way that they can. Being able to meet with people from around the studio and ask them about what they do and how they got their start really not only allowed me to get some really great advice but also helped me narrow down my future career goals. Having the opportunity to meet with the Nickelodeon recruiter one-on-one was probably the most helpful part of this internship. He went over my resume and cover letter with me and told me ways to improve it, as well as gave me tips on ways to get my first job out of college. Overall, one of the best things about Nickelodeon is how everyone seems to want you to succeed. And they're willing to go above and beyond to make sure that you do that.

Downers

At times it was stressful to balance being a full-time student with a 20 hour work week.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be passionate, be persistent, and be kind.

The best part of the internship was getting to meet so many people in the industry and how it inspires you and pushes you to be more involved and open to network; something I never thought I was capable of doing previously. There is no place I've ever been to that has been as inspiring as the studio and the employees of Nickelodeon and the amazing work that's produced. The Internship definitely has so much to offer and I felt like it offers much more than most internships do. Those who are in charge of the internship has since changed but they continue to keep up the energy and encouragement that I had experienced.

Downers

the thing I liked least about the internship has since been addressed. During my time of interning we had to be enrolled in classes and with this internship having so many applicants it took many tries to get into the program. By then I had just graduated and had to enroll in extra classes just to qualify. I found it completely worth it but I know for many graduates who are just barely starting to get onto their feet it can be a struggle. Now, the internship no longer requires you to be enrolled in classes and is even now a paid internship which I find completely amazing and is a huge plus!

Advice to Potential Interns

Please don't be quiet and complacent. Please offer to help your team/supervisor any chance you get. Show your interests in the company regularly and always take advantage of all the classes, meet ups, and events the studio offers. It's completely worth it and pushes you to break out of your shell.
