At Nickelodeon, it feels like the entire studio is structured around creating an incredible experience for the interns. I personally got the opportunity to meet and learn from dozens of Nick employees spanning multiple fields about their job at Nick, career paths, and personal lives. Even the top executives in the studio made a point and seemed genuinely excited to meet with interns. The program itself included 20+ classes, lunches, game nights, and practice art tests, all orchestrated by people who genuinely care about giving the interns the best experience possible while at Nickelodeon. In my department, I was given work that was fun, creative, challenging, and felt genuinely valuable to my team. Overall, I met tons of incredibly talented and kind people, learned a lot, and did work that was fun and fulfilling.
The only real complaint I could make is that there simply were not enough hours in the day to take advantage of all of the incredible "extra-curricular" activities, (art tests, game nights, informational interviews, etc.).
Advice to Potential Interns
Be prepared to work hard, be friendly and professional. And don't be intimidated by the very corporate sounding word, "networking". At least in my experience, networking at Nickelodeon simply felt like meeting cool people and making new friends. And if that still sounds intimidating, I'd advise you to step outside your comfort zone and challenge yourself. It is worth it.
