About Nickelodeon NICKternship Program

Love the world of storytelling? So do we! An internship at Nickelodeon can launch you on an exciting, fun-filled career in children’s entertainment. Nickelodeon produces hits like SpongeBob SquarePants, The Loud House, Cousins for Life, Henry Danger, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more! When people think about an internship, they envision just getting coffee and slaving away behind a copy machine where everyone knows you as "The Intern.” Here at Nickelodeon, we know your name and we view our internship as a true mentorship program where you (insert your name here!) will get the chance to immerse yourself in meaningful projects; where you will feel like a valuable part of team…because you are! Here, we call our interns "NICKterns," and if you get coffee it will be for yourself! Some perks to being a NICKtern?
