Global Intern Programs

Teams that have interns: CNN, HBO, Max, Bleacher Report, TLC, Food Network, and more.

Where our programs are: We host formal intern programs in the US, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, France, the UK, and Ireland. 
Global Tech & Games Intern Program
Our global tech and games intern program is designed to give students the opportunity to learn and work amongst industry leaders. Interns will be able to solve business-critical problems and see the fruits of their labor implemented in real time on our platforms, apps, and games.

We are looking for students interested in taking their technology experience and applying it to the entertainment and games industries.

Our global tech intern program takes place over 11 weeks each summer, and our games intern program hosts 10-12 week internships in the summer or six-month co-ops offered in January and June. 


The WBD apprenticeship program offers you the opportunity to take on real responsibilities within a supportive and encouraging business environment, acting as an integral and valued member of your team. An apprenticeship with us also means you’ll also be a part of our Early Talent network, which will provide you with training and networking sessions to help you succeed and take newly acquired skills to your next role.
If university isn’t the path you're taking but you’re looking for a qualification, our apprenticeships may be right for you. As an apprentice, you’ll work full-time at a competitive salary. In turn, we’ll pay for you to earn a professional qualification while giving you time off to attend college or training with your peers.
Are you currently a student preparing at least a bac+3 level diploma and looking to gain professional experience alongside your studies? An apprenticeship at WBD is the perfect way to combine theory and practice, helping you prepare for future jobs after you graduate.
At WBD, learning is as fun as it is effective. We have a 16 month-long Young Apprentice program for individuals aged 16-24 that provides participants with an enriching and rewarding experience, preparing them for a promising professional future. You do not need a university degree or experience to apply!
Early Career Programs
Start your postgraduate career journey with us! Our global early careers programs equip young professionals with the mentorship, coaching, and training needed to succeed early in their careers. With endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the world of corporate entertainment and technology, you’ll gain exceptional hands-on experience working on business-critical projects.
