Check out the latest internship postings from DreamWorks.

DreamWorks Logo

Unless you go to see fewer movies than I do, then you know about Dreamworks. On the animation side they’ve done Shrek, Antz, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and more. On the film side they’ve done Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, American Beauty, Gladiator, Old School, Transformers, and many more. They make great movies, and they’ve been very successful. It’s no surprise considering they were started by media moguls Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen. If you don’t recognize their logo, then you probably shouldn’t be looking for a internship in the entertainment industry. An internship at DreamWorks is a dream come true for many college students, so let’s look at how you can land one.

Work Your Way to a Dream Internship

DreamWorks is separated into two somewhat separate businesses – DreamWorks Studios and DreamWorks Animation. They’re both recruiting interns right now, and they both have Flash websites that make it impossible for us to link to their Internships pages. On the DreamWorks Animation site, you need to click the “Company” button at the bottom of the page, and then select “Careers” to find information on internship. Here you will have two options – DWA Internships and PDI Internships. The DWA Internships are located in Glendale, CA and they have opportunities that were posted just a few weeks ago for Spring internships in Business Affairs, Consumer Products, Production, Production Tech, and R&D Software. If you’re applying for an artistic position, you should apply by mail to:

DreamWorks Animation
Recruiting Department
1000 Flower Street
Glendale, CA 91201
ATTN: Position name (or code if applicable)

To apply for a non-artistic position, you can send your resume and cover letter to internships@dreamworks.com.

The PDI Internship are located in Redwood City, CA and they have Spring offerings in HR and R&D Software. All of the internships are paid, and they require 16-24 hours per week of time commitment (40 hours per week in the summer). If you’re applying for an artistic position, you should apply by mail to:

PDI/DreamWorks
Recruiting Department
1800 Seaport Boulevard
Redwood City, CA 94063
ATTN: Position name (or code if applicable)

To apply for a non-artistic position, you can send your resume and cover letter to internships@pdi.com.

In addition to these internships, there are internships that appear to be with DreamWorks Studios. They actually have a Jobs site that we can link to, so it should be a little easier to find out the details. Right now they have a Spring Theatrical Marketing Internship in New York City posted, but they will be accepting applications for Summer internships during the month of March. You can apply for these internships by e-mailing dwinterns@dreamworks.com (we’ve received word from a reader that this e-mail address is dead, so snail mail might be the only way to go) or by sending mail to:

DreamWorks
Human Resources
1000 Flower Street
Glendale, CA 91201
ATTN: Internship Coordinator

These internships are offered both on an Academic basis (unpaid) and paid Summer internships. All internships require a 10 week commitment, and Summer internships require 40 hours per week while Spring/Fall internships require 12-24 hours per week.

Yes, it’s a little confusing, but DreamWorks looks like an awesome place to intern, so spend some time on research to find the your dream opportunity.

I wanted to inquire about the internship in Redwood City, CA. I am a video and sound editor/designer/mixer and wanted to apply for the summer/fall but wasn’t sure if Dreamworks outsourced for the positions I want to apply for. Thank you for your time.

FYI, Dreamworks posts the internships as they open, usually as late as March each year. Check back then!
