New York City is Waiting...

Building a career in New York City, often viewed as the “world’s capital,” is the ultimate dream for many people. But why let it just be a dream? Secure your summer internship in New York City now.

NYC IN A NUTSHELL

New York has the reputation of globally excelling in various industries, like finance, fashion, and marketing. But being in school doesn't mean you should wait to start your career. Having experience on your resume will increase your chances of securing a job later on, and gaining experience working in a global hub will make your resume stand out.

An internship in New York City quickly teaches you how to stand on your own while also standing out. Plus, internships in NYC for college students ultimately create space for you to make mistakes, learn, and grow into an individual cut out for a career in the creative industries.

WHY NEW YORK CITY?

New York City is full of opportunities which provide year-long personal and professional opportunities for college and international students. The city doesn’t function on a fall/spring semester schedule as a typical college town might.

Through first-hand exposure to many differing vocations, college and international students living in New York City have the advantage of discovering their career path before entering the workforce. The city’s diverse industries encourage individuals to find their niche.
