Los Angeles, CA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The most fun, welcoming, encouraging, eye opening, and information packed internship I could've ever asked for.

The people, the culture, the creative atmosphere, the willingness of everyone to share their knowledge/experience, the classes, the intern events.

Downers

There is honestly nothing negative I can say about my experience as a Nicktern. I interned over the summer semester, and was astounded with all of the events and classes that were planned for us to experience in just three months.

Advice to Potential Interns

Meet with as many people as humanly possible. Everyone is very willing to share experience and advice with interns - it's a huge part of the culture at Nick. Speaking with industry professionals one on one, which is an incredibly rare opportunity in itself, is very important to discovering what you want to pursue and where to pursue it. Aside from that, coming into work everyday validates, in itself, why people love to be here.

Advice to Management

Not one complaint.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Better Learning Experience than a Classroom!

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!

Would You Recommend

Yes

One of the best experiences i've ever had. Met great people in the industry and made life long friends with my intern group.

Opportunity to speak to whoever you want in the company and really understand what networking is. I really felt a sense of family within the company and people really invested in me. I was trained on how to be a PA and was really shown the ins and outs of the business.

Downers

I don't have one bad thing to say about the program. You really get a lot out of the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

Always have a great attitude and work hard. Your hard work does get noticed and opportunity for advancement is there. You get what you put into the internship.

Advice to Management

I received so much more than i anticipated so the program met and exceeded my expectations.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Experience that was closer to making my childhood dream a reality. Great learning experience that I will never forget.

-Chance to work on a real animation production
-Exclusive class/workshops for interns
-Great company culture

Downers

My semester felt like a transitional phase for the company, so a lot of former employees left. We were unable to meet them.

Advice to Potential Interns

Research the company. Basic communication skills are very important. Have a desire to learn as much as you can while being personable. People enjoy a person they like having around.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Rewarding, Instructive, and full of excitment with unlimited possiblities.

Meeting people from different departments and learning the structure of the studio.

Downers

Maybe if the company could help with getting interns apartments if traveling from other parts of the country.

Advice to Potential Interns

The atmosphere of Nickelodeon is incredible because everyone is so welcoming and friendly. It's a great place to learn different jobs within the pipeline at Nick while meeting great people along the way.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if Nick had art workshops for employees to take part in like sculpting, figure drawing, etc.

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.

The networking opportunities, the attitude of everyone that works there, the intern classes/seminars, the real world experience/advice from professionals, getting to meet people I idolize in my pursued field, the employment opportunities

Downers

I would have liked the summer term to be longer. I also would have liked to be at the establishment full-time.

Advice to Potential Interns

Nick is a great place to work! The people there are true professionals and welcome you in like family. There's a great sense of community and fun to keep the creativity alive. It's one of the best places to work in the animation industry in my opinion.

Advice to Management

I wanted to be there more than just three days a week. I would have loved a full-time internship instead of part-time. Also, more intern classes would have been great!
