Life-Changing Experience.

My internship experience in New York was undoubtedly a life-changing journey. From the moment I arrived in the city that never sleeps, I was immediately engulfed by its fast-paced rhythm and cultural diversity. However, over time, this challenging environment became the perfect backdrop for my personal and professional growth.

Working in one of the world's most significant cities allowed me to immerse myself in a top-tier business environment. My responsibilities as an intern ranged from operational tasks to more strategic projects, enabling me to gain a holistic understanding of the inner workings of the company. Each day was a new adventure, filled with challenges that pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me develop essential skills such as problem-solving, time management, and effective communication.

One of the most enriching aspects of my internship was the opportunity to work with a diverse team of professionals. I learned to collaborate and communicate effectively with people from different cultures and backgrounds, which not only enhanced my ability to work in a global environment but also provided me with valuable insights into different ways of thinking and conducting business.

In addition to work experiences, living in New York offered me the chance to explore a vibrant and bustling city. From strolling through Central Park to attending Broadway shows, every moment of free time was an opportunity to immerse myself in the rich culture and urban dynamics of the Big Apple. These cultural experiences not only enriched my personal life but also influenced my professional perspective, encouraging me to think more creatively and openly.

The network of contacts I built during my internship in New York is another invaluable asset I took from this experience. I met mentors and colleagues who provided me with guidance, support, and opportunities for growth in my career. These connections have continued to be a source of inspiration and advice even after my return home.

Reflecting on my time in New York, I can confidently say that it was a transformative experience. I not only challenged myself and developed key professional skills but also grew as an individual. The city taught me to be resilient, to adapt to new situations, and to embrace diversity in all its forms. As I move forward in my career, I know that the lessons learned and experiences gained in New York will continue to be a source of strength and motivation. In short, my internship in New York was much more than just a job: it was a journey of personal discovery and professional growth that has left an indelible mark on my life.

Intern Group NYC

I got placed in a company that aligned with my field of study and career aspirations. The responsibilities assigned to me were both challenging and rewarding, allowing me to apply my academic knowledge in real-world scenarios. Living in such a dynamic city allowed me to explore its diverse neighborhoods, iconic landmarks, and vibrant nightlife. Weekend outings with fellow interns further enriched my NYC experience, creating lasting memories and friendships. In summary, the intern programme in NYC was a transformative experience that significantly contributed to my personal and professional development.

Unforgettable experience!

TIG’s program has given me the chance to grow in many ways. In a professional level I got to network a lot and to get my first corporate experience. In spite of host organizations being medium-sized, this gives you the chance to build long-term relations and to connect with all areas of the organization at a deeper level. Experiencewise, the program coordinators, Debby and Brian, had made this program an AMAZING one. During weekends they organise group visits. If you ever need anything, they are always willing to help.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have stayed more than 2 months!! Always something new comes up and there are so many great things to do in NY.
Pros
  • Emotional support
  • Fun activities
  • Fast communication

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.

Pros
  • 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
Cons
  • 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!

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.
