Intern London has got your back!

I absolutely loved my experience with Intern London. I learned so much about myself and about the world and that's exactly what I wanted. I now know that I want to travel for a while for my job and have gotten a new awareness about what I find frustrating in my career field. Having actual work experience gives you the ability to see what it all entails and gives you a chance to specify what you want.

Casey in NYC

The experience of interning in NYC has honestly been the greatest two months of my life!

I interned as a journalist for Gossip Cop, an online media out let known as the go-to source for credible celebrity news. Whilst there I gained an incredible knowledge of SEO (search engine optimization) which is far more important than initially realized, because let's be honest, Google owns the internet. Internship aside...

Living and working in NYC is the only way to progress both your personal and professional careers. I've learnt that anything is possible and to be the most positive person you can be with the opportunities in front of you!

NYC has to be one of the most thriving cities in the world! Whether that be the 18,000 restaurants in Manhattan alone or the hundreds of free and amazing events over the summer months; New York has it all! None of those experiences would have been the same if it wasn't for the incredible experience coordinator (and self-proclaimed professional photographer), Brian! This guy was the key to making sure we made the most of every waking hour!

It was through the intern group "groupies" that I've certainly made friends for life! Everyone from "poms" to "kiwis", and everyone else in between. We certainly experienced it all; including, rooftop bars, ice skating, the beach, boat tours, museums, wandering the many miles of central park, meeting celebrities, food tours, baseball games, and just simply hanging out. We were all there for the same thing, and for that I got to hang out with some of the coolest people every single day!

How can this program be improved?
The major thing I could suggest as improvement is to make sure internships are applied for as soon as possible! I missed out on a lot of potential internships because they required application up to a year in advance. This was particularly prevalent in the Journalism industry, also be clear what kind of position you exactly want. There was too much time wasted on applying for internships I wasn't interested in.
Fortunately I didn't have to deal with the visa issues, as I was already in the US. However, I know a lot of other people did. Again this all just comes down to applying as soon as possible. Don't wait, don't dawdle. The more time you allow to get everything sorted, the less stressful it is for everyone.

I would do it again!

Overall, the whole experience was amazing. Now when I look back on it I realize that I was missing home and worried about not speaking Spanish, but none of the other interns spoke Spanish and we all got along great. I'm still in touch with most of them as well as two colleagues from work. I definitely developed professionally and personally, I was quite shy talking to strangers before, but during the program I was forced to do it everyday and now I have no problem! I'll finish by saying that Madrid is the BEST place in the world! Literally has everything but all so close together, it's like a village with everything, I could never be bored and I will be back soon!

How can this program be improved?
I would like to have had my own bathroom. I think I could have asked for one but the program price increased.
