NBCUniversal is an American mulitnational media company headquartered in 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Primarily involved in the media and entertainment industries, NBCU’s most prominent divisions include NBC (one of the “Big Three” television networks), Universal Studios (a major film studio), and Universal Parks and Resorts (the third largest amusement parks operation in the world). NBCU, and NBCUniversal Technology specifically, plans to be one of the leaders in the digital entertainment space with investments in both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
In my role as a Media Tech Intern in NBCU’s Corporate Systems department, I converted, uploaded, and imported NBCUniversal transactional data via SAP, and I reconciled the data loads to confirm data accuracy. I also worked with a team of interns to create a chatbot on Facebook Messenger for NBCUniversal to utilize for promotional and customer service purposes.
I learned a lot about the corporate space during my time at NBCU. I also learned how to take the material we’ve learned in class and apply it to the working world (SAP, Excel, etc.). My NBCU internship experience has made me a more prepared professional for my next internship or full-time position.
