Nickelodeon Animation Studio Internship Program 2016

Deadline: June 1, 2016

Do you love Cartoons? Apply now for the Nickelodeon Fall Semester Internship Program. An internship at Nickelodeon can launch you on an exciting, fun-filled career in children’s entertainment. The Fall Semester internship starts in September and wraps in December.

When people think about an internship, they envision getting coffee, running errands, and slaving away behind a copy machine where everyone knows you as “The Intern.” Fortunately, there is still hope out there, and that is at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, CA! There, they call their interns “NICKterns,” and if you get coffee it will be for yourself!

The Nickelodeon Animation Studio produces such hits as SpongeBob SquarePants, Sanjay and Craig, Wallykazam!, Breadwinners, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Some of the great perks to being a NICKtern are networking with studio artists and producers, having lunch with top executives, going to free movie screenings, taking practice art tests, attending intern classes and much, much more!!
