Missed the Nickelodeon Viacom internship presentation? Here are some NOTES!
Published on March 2, 2016
We heard through the grapevine that many of you were not able to attend last Friday’s Nickelodeon careers and internships info session. Two representatives from Nickelodeon and their parent company Viacom joined us via Skype to offer their tips for landing a job or an internship with their organization. Both Amy Wu and Ashley Mettille offered some excellent insider tips and answered a lot of common questions.
Criteria for any Viacom (Nickelodeon’s parent company) internship program
Candidates must meet and comply with ALL of the criteria below to be eligible for any Viacom Internship Program:
- Internships are paid at a standard competitive hourly rate of $10/hour (California).
- Proper work authorization is needed to be employed in the United States.
- Interns must be available for a minimum of 10 weeks. An extension may be requested by the department following the 10 weeks, but may not overlap with the next internship semester.
- Interns must be available to work a minimum of two full days per week (16 hours), but some departments may require more than two days. Interns may work no more than 35 hours per week.
- Internships are open to current, matriculated college juniors, seniors, and recent grads. All applicants must be enrolled in an accredited, degree-granting college/university. Graduate students, MBA candidates, and law school students also accepted.
- Upon acceptance, we will require a letter from your college/university confirming you are a matriculated junior, senior, graduate student or law student. Failure to provide this letter at orientation may result in dismissal from the program.
- College credit is not required, but we will provide appropriate documentation if necessary and upon request.
