My internship experience at NBCUniversal has been one of the best experiences in my life! The BOC is the heart and center of distributing content all over the world to your home (Without us, there is no NBC). Events such as Superbowl, The Olympics and other great shows are distributed where I work. There is an amazing opportunity to learn about future trends of the media industry as well as an experience to personally develop your skills throughout the process! There are always fun perks including being a part of the awesome entertainment of NBC, including Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and other great shows! I will be forever thankful to be a part of this amazing company.

Mallory Madfes

Department: On-Air Operations

This summer I am working in the NOC which is where all content is monitored before being sent out to your TVs at home. My third day working here I was assigned a project that would help update the current alarm system we use to make sure everything on-air is good! One of my favorite things this summer is that every day I can walk in with a plan, and then everything could change within minutes. It is also so cool that the technology in this field is always being improved and I love how I learn something new every day whether this includes understanding operators daily tasks or learning how signals are sent through equipment out to the dishes and up to the satellites.

Department: Eng Tech On-Air Systems Media Movement

The On-Air Systems Engineering Technology department continually improves and supports the key software and systems NBCUniversal employees rely on every day. As an intern with this department, I had the pleasure of improving the look and feel of these sites. I was also given an incredible opportunity to be the project manager for a new web application, on which I worked first-hand with developers to write code for, test, and deploy the Global Activity Dashboard. It was a fulfilling experience to see the project transform from an idea to a functional, useful, and impactful tool for my coworkers. This internship has given me several new skills, friendships, and memories that only NBCUniversal could provide.

Sarah Krueger

Department: Studio Operations IT

The main project I have been working on is a web app called MoveCommand. My daily activities include attending a morning standup meeting with the entire Agile team, designing new interfaces to improve the user experience of our app on mobile devices, and implementing and testing these front-end changes. It's been great experience being able to follow my ideas through the entire development process from the time that they are user stories to the time that they are deployed to production. My supervisor has made my internship an invaluable experience by facilitating networking opportunities with colleagues, introducing me to the different departments and operations within the business, and giving me exposure to numerous projects that have educated me on topics that range from media consulting and creating technical documentation to Agile development and DevOps practices.

Sarvesh Shah

Department: Project Management, Technology

I had an amazing time working at NBCUniversal during the 2015 summer. My role was in a project management capacity for the NBC News organization in the technology division. First two days of orientation are still the best highlights of the overall internship from me. Exploring emerging technologies within the media and getting a chance to work at the heart of NYC (30 Rock) was something I just couldn’t get over. From day one of my internship, we were assigned a team project of developing a website. This was solely an intern-only assignment, and teams were formed of different interns from all over the country working for NBCU. With NBC News, I was made the lead project manager from day three for a completely new initiative within the organization. The overall project and the core initiative were based on creating an internal search engine and a database for news transcripts for all news shows. As a computer engineering major pursuing a master’s in software engineering, building search engines and creating websites were dream projects in the role of a project manager. I had the opportunity to work with several key stakeholders and basically develop the whole project from scratch. My internship at NBCU ended with an offer for their NexTech program, and I can’t wait to join them next summer! A truly rewarding experience!
