Students reluctant to return to school after having amazing summer experiences interning at Nickelodeon


Uppers

Meeting Nickelodeon artists, being able to learn how to use After Effects and Lightwave, getting to know the process behind how an animation is made at Nickelodeon, meeting other interns who shared the same interests and passions as I did, getting to visit other Viacom companies, such as Paramount and going to free movie screenings there, learning about mentorship and other important aspects of job searching at Nickelodeon, and so much more! I could go on for a while.


Downers

That is was only two months! I wish it could have lasted longer, although I had to go back to school in the fall.


Advice to Potential Interns

Interning at Nickelodeon is an amazing opportunity. Whether you're interested in writing, making art, or a production job, there are many different paths that lead to interning at Nick! It is a great chance to be able to meet people in the animation industry (some of who might have been your childhood heroes!) and find out how they got to Nick and what their day-to-day routine is. Working at Nickelodeon is a tremendous opportunity that you should definitely apply for.


Advice to Management

Perhaps changing the internship to paid would have attracted more applicants, but nonetheless I really enjoyed every aspect of the internship.

Nickelodeon Animation Studio Internship was inspirational, motivating, and life-changing.


Uppers

Company Culture, Employee/Intern Events, Hands-on assignments, classes, and meetings with artists/employees.


Downers

The thing I liked least about the Nickelodeon Animation Studio internship is that it had an end date.


Advice to Potential Interns

The company culture is very positive. Everyone at the studio seems very happy and welcoming. There is very good morale in the studio, and the company makes a point to appreciate both their employees and their interns.

The best learning experience I've ever had


Uppers

Learning about production on the show I was assigned, meeting people in the studio, fun activities and classes with the other interns


Downers

it was too short, and I wish I could intern more days


Advice to Potential Interns

At Nickelodeon Animation Studio, I was able to get an inside look of producing cartoons for children's television. I was able to meet many people at the studio who were all friendly and willing to help me out. It was the best summer I've ever had, and one filled of learning and fun activities at the studio.


Advice to Management

It would be nice if it were paid internship, but just being able to be at the studio I didn't mind really.

Work with the artists responsible for creating some of your most treasured childhood memories


Uppers

The educational classes were fantastic and taught me a lot about the varying aspects of the animation industry. These classes helped create a very strong friendship among all of the interns, as we were encouraged to participate together in these group activities. Nickelodeon encouraged interns to meet with artists and other employees at Nick - this atmosphere was extremely helpful in learning more about individual jobs and networking with industry professionals. Fun activities, such as weekly cartoon screenings, were an extreme plus, and further helped create unity amongst the group of interns.


Downers

Nothing. The internship program was the best I've ever experienced.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take advantage of all the opportunities Nick provides for you. All are excellent learning experiences.

Better Learning Experience than a Classroom!


Uppers

The people were always willing to sit down and talk to you as an indvidual, not as though you were a peon that was under them (Even the VP). Everyone I interacted with was willing to answewr any question I had or direct me to someone that could. As an artist I also formed a mentorship bond with many of the artists at Nickelodeon.


Downers

That is had to end.


Advice to Potential Interns

I was really disapointed and saddened when I had to turn in my badge, I wanted to stay forever. Even if I had to live under someone's desk ... okay maybe that was too creepy, but its how I felt.


Advice to Management

I would have loved to have more classes! I would have skipped the college classes to go to Nickelodeon ones!

An internship that allows you live your dream


Uppers

Interns are encouraged to talk to anyone at the studio and everyone is willing to share advice and offer help. The studio has a very friendly and energetic environment which makes coming to work becomes a pleasure every day.


Downers

The internship is non-paid and academic credit only. This is not a big problem during regular semesters. But during summer, students have to pay the school for every internship credit they earn. I paid our school $1000 for the one summer internship credit. But this is not the studio's fault. It happens for every academic credit-only summer internship in the nation.


Advice to Potential Interns

Find your passion/focus and dive into it. Trust your instinct. If you want to work for Nickelodeon, watch all Nickelodeon shows. You need to love what you are working on then you can do a good job on it.

The most important things I learned at Nickelodeon along with career skills were life skills that have been extrememly helpful to me.


Uppers

The welcoming environment - As interns we were not only recommended to but expected to meet with anyone at the studio who we wanted to learn from. I met a wide variety of people, from PA's to VP's and got valuable advice from each one including repeat meetings with a character designer who looked at my drawings and helped me to improve them.


Downers

We had intern workshops on various skills that I often couldn't attend due to my class schedule. The opportunity to have one or two during lunch would've been appreciated but I understand how valuable lunchtime is!


Advice to Potential Interns

Nickelodeon expects a lot from their employees and interns but gives a lot in return. Everyone here is extremely passionate and you will meet amazing people here.

Best Internship Ever.


Uppers

This internship was an absolutely incredible experience. I went in knowing very little about the industry and what I wanted to do with my life. I came out with a career path and the contacts and advice needed to continue pursuing opportunities in the field. I don't believe there is any other internship out there that could have done the same for me. I'm really greatful for the experience of this internship. ( My favorite part ofthe internship was sitting in on a recording session! Thats where I discovered I want to be a Casting Director one day! :) )


Downers

I wish that the opportunity to do consecutive internships or multiple internships was still avaialble. Once I discovered what I want to do it would have been awesome to have had the opportunity to intern within that department.


Advice to Potential Interns

Honestly, I learned more in the five months with Nickelodeon then I did in a majority of my college classes. The hands on and real life experiences from the internship made it a priceless opporunity. I do not believe I would be where I am today if not for this internship. I was dreading an internship my senior year and now I reccomend them to people because I give all the credit to Nickelodeon for helping me figure out what I want to do. Seriously best internship ever.
