"I worked with a small engagement team on a private Hedge/PE Firm. I was able to test several areas of the financial statements for a few of the firms funds. It was an informative experience that made me excited to work at PwC upon graduation."

"INTURN is a rapidly growing software service company that strives to provide quicker methods for fashion brands and off-price retailers to openly communicate and negotiate sales contracts. As the intern at INUTRN, I had the opportunity to wear multiple hats by working on multiple projects for each department of the company. For instance, I participated in key Human Resources projects for the Chief of Operations, such as creating a new Human Resources platform for the company through BambooHR. Additionally, I incorporated crucial information about INTURN's clients into the company's Salesforce Platform. I also created a competitors matrix for the business development team to showcase how INTURN differentiates itself from its competitors. Finally, I partook in a large research project for the Chief of Marketing regarding how the company can effectively engage in Business-to-Business advertising through the company's various social media platforms. I learn so much about each facet of a business through this internship, as well as how to effectively organize my priorities and manage my time well."

It has really helped me gain a sense of how to be a valuable asset to a company, and how to manage my time between work and class. I am interning for Madison Square Garden, in the Marketing Partnerships division. More specifically, I collaborate with the Account Management team to create and maintain sponsorship contractual elements for clients within various industries. I also help coordinate and execute promotions and marketing elements at various team home games for the Knicks, Rangers, and Liberty. Learning and interacting with many of my industry's leaders has been such an amazing experience, and living in New York City will be something I never forget! I highly recommend any Ithaca College students to take part in this amazing ICNYC program!"

Our programs were offered to operations employees within the Network Operations department and the operations employees within the 32 charter schools dispersed throughout 4 boroughs of New York City. These programs are to ensure that operations employees are aligned with the values of the organization, recognize opportunities for personal growth, enhance the skills necessary to succeed in their roles, and provide them with resources to pursue additional training on their own. My key responsibilities were event planning, presentation training, and translating training feedback into data driven goals for future improvements."

I was responsible for compiling contact information for agencies and teams, crafting target lists, creating athlete background profiles, general research, transcribing interviews, and much more. My most valuable experience at my internship was being able to sit in on daily meetings throughout the office. I truly got a sense of the ins and outs of what it takes to work in this field.
My experience with The Players’ Tribune was incredible. I learned a great deal about the sports industry while also enhancing my professional skills. The office atmosphere was amazing-everyone was tremendously helpful and willing to give me the most of my experience. It was like a big family.
