City Internships runs immersive career training programs for college students and recent graduates. They’re designed to expand your horizons and get you job-ready. For each program, on top of hard and soft skill building at weekly career seminars, workshops and networking events, you’ll undertake an internship placement at one of our partner companies. You’ll develop real-world skills, build your professional network and fast-track your career.

Here’s why we think you should apply to the Global Internship Program:

Before the internship

•We do the leg work for you

 Our team knows how tricky and time-consuming looking for an internship or entry-level position can be. It can be a full-time job looking for an internship. We make sure your resume is up to scratch and introduce you to our partner companies. We focus on setting up and prepare you for interviews, guiding you through the placement process.

•Professional support leading up to the program

 Once you have an internship secured we will continue to provide advice on everything from visas and flights to what to pack in your suitcase for your eight-week placement. Our internship advisors are experts in their field and will be on hand to make the transition as smooth as possible.

•Access to the best accommodation

 Moving to another city can be a stressful time for anyone and accommodation is at the top of the list of things to sort out. We partner with high quality student accommodation companies to provide excellent dormitory living in the heart of our host cities for those who wish to take advantage of the option. Another worry taken care of!

“City Internships did a great job in preparing me for what my company expected of me, what I would be doing and setting up conversations with my mentor before I started my internship” – Sebastian, London summer 2015

During the internship 

•Gain career-enhancing work experience

 Land an internship that will allow you to realize your career direction, make your resume glow and have hiring companies lining up to meet you. Convert your theoretical knowledge into workplace dexterity with a slice of professional life and career-enhancing weekly seminars.

•Access to a professional network

 Meet like-minded go-getters and leading industry experts at exclusive networking events; invaluable connections to kick-start your career. Seminars such as the graduate and executive panel will give you a forum in which to pitch questions to professionals at both ends of the career ladder, whilst employer events will allow you to converse with successful business people on a one-on-one basis.

•A packed social calendar

 We believe that your eight-weeks on the Global Internship Program should be an immersive, all-encompassing experience. Away from your placement, we provide a social schedule designed to help you form relationships with fellow interns, experience some of the best social spots that your city has to offer, and let your hair down.

•Broaden your horizons

 At City Internships we are fortunate enough to provide work experience to students and graduates in some of the greatest cities on earth. Whichever location you choose to intern in you’ll be met with world-famous landmarks and iconic histories to explore. You’ll come away with life-long memories of your host city and its unique culture.

“I was nervous about traveling to a different city at first, but the City Internships team helped me feel right at home and paired me with a bunch of people that I can now call best friends. From the get-go I joined a ready-made social circle of like-minded interns on the program” – Leah, Los Angeles summer 2015.

After the internship

•A huge talking point at interviews and a glowing resume

 International work experience is a sure-fire way of standing out from the job-hunting crowd. Demonstrating that you have a solid understanding of the professional workplace and a grasp of the skills required to succeed will be a priceless asset for you. Plus, discussing your eight weeks interning in a leading city is always a popular talking point.

•Lasting friendships

 You will meet similar career-minded people from all over the world during your time on the Global Internship Program and we guarantee that you will form friendships that will continue across continents for many years. Our Christmas reunions are testament to how close bonds can become with interns from all over the world coming together to catch up with their friends.

•Support throughout your career

 All City Internships alumni benefit from post-program support including access to graduate and entry-level opportunities. We are partnered with a wide-range of companies who know that City Internships alumni make well-rounded, focused and driven employees.

“I’ve learnt more during my internship than I have in my entire first year at university. We meet clients, we talk about real life things, which you just can’t do in an academic course. The program has provided me with hands-on experience”– Patrick, London summer 2015.
