New York Film Internship

I took part in an incredible 6-month film internship in NYC. It might seem a bit scary at first but everyone that I’ve met there considers it one of the best decisions they’ve made career wise and at a personal level. The city was incredible, the people I met through the intern group are friends that I will keep in contact with forever, Brian was the best person in the program being super attentive, helpful and fun, the internship itself has helped me incredibly career-wise and I didn’t stay in the accommodations but I frequented them to visit my friends and the Brooklyn building was insanely good. Overall best experience I’ve taken part in.

  • No need for Ubers or cars because transit is very efficient
  • You meet people from all around the world both inside and outside the program
  • You get to hear the song “Empire State of Mind” literally everywhere at all times
  • New York can be very pricy
  • It’s a safe city but you have to be conscious and careful
  • The American Visa process is very inefficient and long

New York Internship

It was an amazing opportunity to have some exposure in NYC. It was a dream come true. The Intern Group made sire the process was simple and not complicated. They offered various types of arrangements that will fit everyone’s need. They were trying their best to keep us engaged by contacting regularly and arranging group events. I personally opted for separate accomodation but i knew students who were with TIG living arrangements say that it was really good. Overall the experience was wonderful and helped me build my resume.

Can't fault them!

I arrived in New York just as the severity of the outbreak became realised. I worked for 2 days in the office before then spending the remaining two weeks working form home. With the support of Brian and Isis, I made the decision to fly home early but continue my internship from home. I couldn't have asked for better people to have guided me through this process and tried to make an unprecedented situation feel more normal. The weekend social activities (before the city got shut down) were so impressive and I was gutted not too have been able to do them all! Thank you so much to Brian, Isis, Hanna and all at the Intern Group for going above and beyond in these times and do their utter best to support, advise and try to give us all an amazing experience

The Intern Group do well in a crisis

We're writing this about the programme set up for our daughter and to say how well the Intern Group have responded to the coronavirus crisis. She arrived in New York for an internship with a not-for-profit just before the outbreak. On her third day in work, it was discovered that the second person with a confirmed case of the virus worked in her building, which was closed down straight away. Over the next ten days, she had to work from home but while the placement organisation were doing their best, there wasn't much they could offer her to do. It soon became clear that the internship was being overtaken by much bigger events and there was no prospect of meaningful work experience. At this point, our daughter agreed with the Intern Group that it was best to suspend the programme, and she left New York to stay with friends in Toronto.

Throughout this difficult and stressful time, everyone we were in touch with at the Intern Group were great. Brian, the contact in New York, could not have done more and went out of his way to help. Hannah, the Americas Head of Experience, has also been tremendous, taking time to call and to follow up all our concerns and questions.

Moreover, the Intern Group has agreed that all the 'unused' time and costs on the internship - including rent - can be held over and put towards a new position and experience once this nightmare with coronavirus is over. This has made a huge difference to our daughter, who feared that months of planning, working, and saving had been wiped out.

Through all this desperately difficult time, the Intern Group's focus has been on treating everyone well and fairly - even, no doubt, where it has come at a financial cost to them. For this, they deserve a lot of credit, and certainly have our thanks.

Well done!

Great Experience

I had the greatest time in NYC during 5 months. Intern Group was able to find me this great internship in a great company with great colleagues. The city is awesome and there are plenty things to do. We had fun events every weekend and explore New York to the full extent. I would also like to thank Brian, Miriam and Nicholas from Intern group for being responsive and kind all the time. I don't think you need second thoughts if you are considering to attend this program. You are going to add a great value to your career and have so much fun!

Best Program!!!

I just completed a 6 month internship in New York through the Intern Group and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. From the beginning everything was very organized and the application process was easy going. The staff is really great. Every question or concern gets answered in no time. Once in New York, the staff takes very good care of you and all the other Interns. They make you feel like home. The accommodation is very nice. Everyone gets a room with a private bathroom and even a little kitchen! Working in New York is amazing. The city is absolutely one of the best places to work and live. My host company was a real estate brokerage, which was great since I want to get into that field. The coworkers were all super friendly and I learnt a lot from them. Getting a first hand insight into american lifestyle and work ethics is one of the major take aways from this internship. On top of the amazing time I had here, I got offered a job at my host company. Of course I accepted and I can’t wait to get my career started in this amazing city. I recommend this program to anyone who wants an amazing experience abroad. I would give more than 10 stars if i could :)

Career shifting

The intern group cater for everyone and that’s what makes them fantastic. It’s invlusive of age , study, country and skill level. This program is not just for students but for those needing to gain experience in a different field or shifting their career field focus. They can assist you with the hurdles that older graduates may face. Their support is ongoing and fantastic . They genuinely care about each intern and you really do become a family unit. I would say pack a little extra money to get you set up in your unit with some cooking supplies and bedding etc. always buy the monthly subway tickets too!

Internship in New York

I had a great internship experience in New York. The staff were all very supportive from my first interview to being out here in New York. Furthermore staff always stayed in contact with us during the internship to make sure we were ok. The accommodation was good and the other interns were all so friendly and we had regular fun nights out. The staff who did the tours were all so nice and welcoming. The company I interned in was very good and always made me work on new projects and I got to learn a lot. I would defiantly recommend this program to future participants it is a life changing experience.

What would you improve about this program?
Have a introduction dinner on the first night people arrive as it is a great way to meet everyone.

Questions & Answers

It is an unpaid internship. Although, we have plans for offering paid internships in the future.

Hi Sanaa, great question! The internship visa has a grace period of 30 days after the internship end date, so you could stay for that time and further explore New York or travel around the US.
