About the NBCUniversal Act Two Returnship Program
Ready to make a comeback? At NBCUniversal, we’re excited to support returners like you.

You may have put your career on pause for your family. But your talent and drive didn’t pause. They were just being applied elsewhere, where they were needed most. We appreciate the diverse perspective you can provide and the contributions you will make.

The Act Two career relaunch program at NBCUniversal is a six-month, paid, fixed-term role for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for personal reasons such as caregiving. This year, Universal Destinations & Experiences is introducing their own four-month Act Two returnships. Both programs are open to individuals who have at least five years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce (in an office/corporate environment) for at least two years.

Possible assignment areas include Data & Analytics, Cyber Security, Software/Application Development, Systems Engineering, Technical Infrastructure (virtualized platforms), Technical Project Management, Production Management, Operations, Facilities Project Management, Finance, and more.

During the returnship, you’ll have the opportunity to sharpen your skills, update your resume with new experiences, make connections, contribute to a team, and possibly convert to a full-time position. Along the way, you’ll receive invaluable advice and professional development support from managers and Act Two alumni.

Returnships That Make a Difference

Success Story: Beth F.

Beth returned to work through the Act Two program and now works at NBCUniversal full-time as a Senior Business Analyst. She credits the support she received for her easy transition back into the workforce. “I had regular touch-bases with my managers, and I felt comfortable asking them any questions I had. My supervisor also ensured I had a good project to work on. That piece is so key for demonstrating your experience and value.” Read Beth’s story here.
