JOB OPPORTUNITIES

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

  • CITY INTERNSHIPS (NY, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Miami, LA, San Francisco and more!)

            Check web site for deadlines: http://www.city-internships.com/getstarted/

            Since CI’s launch in 2011, we have helped launch more than a thousand careers. We’ve grown from one city to eighteen across five countries; we’ve grown from exclusively financial services to an additional eight industries; we’ve gone from one program to three program types and now, we’ve rebranded from City Internships to CI.     

  • ARTS INTERN PROGRAM

            The Arts Intern Program is now accepting applications for paid summer internships for summer 2020. Arts Intern supports engaging, challenging, career-building internships at cultural organizations in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Providence. Internships last nine weeks and interns work 28 hours a week. Interns will be paid $15.00 per hour, except for                cities in which local laws dictate a higher rate.
