Page Program

About the Program

The NBCUniversal Page Program is a 12 to 15-month rotational learning and development program that gives early career talent a well-rounded experience along with unmatched exposure to the media industry. The program is designed to help prepare Page Program graduates for other early-career, entry level roles at the company.  Employment at NBCUniversal after program completion is a primary goal but not guaranteed. 

While the program is regularly based out of New York, NY and Universal City, CA , safety is our top priority, and we’ve currently shifted to a virtual experience in response to COVID-19. Current Pages have trailblazed new ways to contribute to their teams across the company in a virtual setting. The rotational nature of the program remains the same, with Pages completing 4 unique assignments within their year. 

NBCU Pages are paid hourly at a rate of $18.50 per hour and are eligible for overtime. Additionally, Pages are eligible for a comprehensive health and wellness benefits plan, paid time off, paid company holidays and a stipend upon starting the program. 

The Page Program and Early Careers team is committed to fostering a community rooted in inclusion, equity, curiosity and empathy, where all Pages feel they can succeed and belong.  

Program Experience

Pages are immersed into the NBCUniversal culture and gain exposure to its vast portfolio by contributing to areas of the business including, but not limited to: Public Relations, Production & Development, Marketing, Business Development, Ad Sales and Digital. Pages will be assigned to 4 rotational assignments throughout the year in these areas of the business. 

A unique element of the Page Program is the shared experience with a cohort and the Page community at large. Pages also have access to a wider network of support throughout their year and receive continuous performance feedback and coaching. There are also regularly scheduled learning and development opportunities including skill building labs and guest speaker events. 

Ambassadorship Experience

Pages in both NY and LA will begin their Page year by going through a 2-week onboarding process to learn more about NBCUniversal as a business, and the Page Program as a whole. The onboarding experience is designed to help new Pages feel set up for success going into their first assignment. Incoming Pages are also assigned mentors to help familiarize themselves with the company and culture.

Pages learn to fluently speak the language of NBCUniversal’s businesses - including how the parts of our portfolio work together, and how they contribute to the bigger picture. Assignments include rotations in functions like Ad Sales, Corporate Diversity and Content Distribution.

Consumer Assignments

Strengthen business communication skills by learning how NBCUniversal’s portfolio of brands speak to their audience. Assignments include rotations in functions like Marketing, Social Media, Public Relations and On-Air Promotions.

Page Program Alumni

Jermaine, Coordinator
Bravo Production

“My year as a page was easily the best time in my professional life. I had some exhilarating experiences working on NBC’s late night shows. But I also had many professional accomplishments on my assignments that made me proud. For me, the feedback culture of the Page Program is unrivaled! The Page team was there guiding my development.

In my new role at Bravo, I act as the liaison between our network and the various production companies we work with. Some of my responsibilities include scheduling calls, casting meetings and set visits. Additionally, I also have the opportunity to share my feedback and write notes for different cuts of our shows that we share with the production companies. Even as a coordinator, I am helping to create shows that are in line with Bravo’s goals.”

TODAY

“After interning at NBCU, I was certain I wanted to begin my career at this company. The Page Program was the perfect first step, providing me the tools, experience and relationships I needed to start my journey in media. Throughout my year in the program, I loved working on the production & marking sides of the business, and upon discovering the Network Partnerships team in Ad Sales, I knew I found a team that touches on both!

Our team works to integrate brands into TODAY show content, developing strategies to help accomplish a brand’s goals while staying true to TODAY with engaging & organic content. I’m lucky to have a supportive team (filled with Pages!) that fosters growth, encourages me to take on new responsibilities, and allows me to experience new things. From the supportive Page network, to the unmatched experiences I had in the program, I am eternally grateful to have been a Page, and wouldn’t trade the experience for anything!”

Michelle, Assistant, Global Communications

“I was finishing up my Master’s degree and looking for the next step in my career. What was most interesting to me about the Page Program was having the opportunity to experience and work in a variety of business divisions, something that most people don’t get the chance to do in their careers. The program helped me have a better understanding of NBCUniversal and the entertainment industry as a whole - I can honestly say that I have brought at least one skill from every assignment into my job.

In my current role, I attend movie premieres and events to assist the top executives in our company and I have the opportunity to play a role in the media that surrounds Universal projects. The Page Program helped me realize that I wanted to work in PR - and having the opportunity to experience different departments helped lead me to my current job on a great team.”

Gabrielle, Logistics Coordinator
Access Hollywood

“I worked a few different jobs within the entertainment industry after graduating from college, but was disappointed by the lack of opportunity and ability to grow within some of these roles. Being a Page allowed me to continue to learn & explore in one of the largest media companies in the world. Because of the program, I refined my professional skills and got to learn from the best in the business. After graduating as a Page, I accepted a role within NBCU at Access Hollywood.

As a Logistics Coordinator, I’m responsible for our day to day production operations - making sure our live show is ready to run every day of the week. I know without the Page Program I wouldn’t be where I am today. It definitely jump started my career and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity!”
