Being granted access to Nickelodeon Animation properties and the great professional artists and personnel who create them. Having an opportunity to experience this American animation institution from the inside even briefly is priceless.

Downers

The only "con" is the studio is solely based in Burbank, CA. Relocation to take full advantage of this internship is the only challenge for potential candidates who are any place other than Los Angeles county.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are fortunate enough to receive an approval offer as a Nicktern, come motivated and ready to learn. The team here at Nick Animation are amazingly helpful and will treat you like one of their own. Many current staff members are themselves former Nickterns and the climate here absolutely fosters developing your potential to join the ranks provided an opening exists. Just realize - these are in no way artist roles during the internship.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. The Nickelodeon Animation Studio Nicktern program is outstanding. Amy Wu & Mary Madormo run a world-class internship that is truly beneficial to all who are fortunate enough to make it into this program.

The people are so friendly and you're made to feel like you are an essential part of the company (and not just a disposable intern). They provide ample opportunities to network and meet with professionals one-on-one. They also offer group classes taught by professionals on various animation aspects and position that could easily be classes you would pay a lot of money to take any where else!

Downers

When I did the internship it was unpaid, and now they pay a small hourly wage so that was kind of a bummer for me, but I didn't really mind at the time and wouldn't stop me from doing the internship again for free either!

Advice to Potential Interns

The internship is set up in such a way that it's almost more of a training program (as it should be) but teaches interns how the company works and what is demanded of a professional working production team member so that when it comes time to hire an entry-level position - they refer often first to those who've already been through this training.

Downers

I cannot think of a single thing that I dis-liked about my internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

If this is something you are truly interested in, I encourage you to put as much into it as you can, because the people here will put just as much into helping you succeed.

The best aspect of the internship was becoming familiar with the process of TV animation and acquiring a mentorship relationship with many of the artists, who then push you to be the best version of yourself. From my own supervisor to the artist at each production, there's a work ethic and built-in passion that one can't help but be drawn to. This experience made me want to push myself in every way.

Downers

The internship was perfect from the ground up. Nothing out there even comes close to this.

Advice to Potential Interns

Just making sure that there's a balance for interns to be with the production team vs at intern events.

Not only being in such a wonderful studio, but getting the opportunity to work with and learn from professionals. I learned so much about the industry and production more during my internship than in school. And getting the opportunity to meet and talk to others from different departments helped my understanding of the industry and just how much work goes into it all. Ms. Wu and Ms. Madormo have done excellently with the internship program and have been such great mentors all along the way. I can't express how much I loved interning at Nickelodeon! It was the best experience and opportunity I could have ever received. I would highly recommend and encourage any student looking for an internship to apply there.

Downers

To be honest, there was nothing I did not like about the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

* Professionalism at it's best
* Welcoming and fun environment to work in

Meeting some amazing people! It also never got old walking into the building every morning where my favorite cartoons as a child were made.

I wish it didn't have to end! Also, it would be great if it could go a little longer. It lasted 10 weeks but I was able to stay an additional two.

Advice to Potential Interns

Network, network, network! You'll have plenty of opportunity to.
