I had a fantastic summer with City Internship! They provided a great mixture of activities and awesome business interactive classes that complemented my internship and improved my skill sets. Their support throughout the duration of the program was outstanding, I felt super comfortable talking to any program representative and they were very eager to assist me in any way possible. I had the privilege to connect with other like-minded interns from literally all over the world and collectively experience nothing but great and memorable moments with my new friends and future colleagues. I've learned a lot about myself and my industry in those 8 weeks. I would also like to thank Misha and Stephen for their guidance and support.

My internship was definitely hands on! I got a chance to explore London and interact with different professionals, artists, and other talented individual who reside in London. The network here is AMAZING! I l also earned more about the company I worked for as well as where I see myself in the future for my career in Marketing.

The experiences here were definitely life changing, and it was so great meeting other students and professionals from all over the globe! I am so glad I had the opportunity to participate in the program!

How can this program be improved?
Better communication throughout the application, interview, and traveling process. More Program Leaders. Better connection with alumni and current students.

The internship portion is good as they try their best to pair you with a company that suits your needs. I thought mine was very well suited for me and my plans with the business sector. However, I heard others had horror stories of their companies being forced to shut down. I understand that's something out of CI control but it shouldn't happen considering how much money we pay. My company promised to compensate me for food and transportation in which neither actually happened. I wish I knew how expensive it would be to live in a big city, having to pay 50-100 PER WEEK just for transportation isn't ideal for a student budget. (Also once you pay for the program good luck getting your money back should you change your mind.) The seminars each week were okay, mostly things that I already knew from taking Business courses at my University. I wish I looked a little further into other programs and analyzed the cost over the benefits. After spending almost 5K on this program, be prepared to dish out more for food, entertainment, transportation, etc. If you can afford these things as a student or someone just starting out, it should go well for you.

How can this program be improved?
I wish the program offered more financial assistance, especially for those still at University. Also, look into companies that will actually value a student's skills enough to compensate them for their work. I went to an event and literally heard interns that work for free as "cheap labor." I also don't believe some events were delivered as promised. The website states for our weekend retreat everything paid for, and we still had to dish out MORE money for food/entertainment. It's misleading. If we are interns we should be highly valued as students and individuals.

Each Monday I looked forward to the City Internships events. During the week these were a combination of workshops and seminars (an alumni panel and an executive panel, for example). It was nice to hear executives validating with their advice what City Internships was teaching us. I loved my internship and would work for the company City Internships connected me with if I chose to work in New York City in the future—as my company's CEO invited me to work with them again.

For the weekend excursion we were taken to Lake George; I like that City Internships planned this relaxing trip into our busy, NYC work schedule! The activities were fun, and the company (other program interns and the City Internships staff) was great. A year later, I still stay in touch with friends I made through this summer interning program. Oh, and kudos to the City Internships staff—who balance fun and professionalism extremely well.

When I enrolled onto the CI program, I was super excited. I knew it was going to be completely different than anything else I had done before. It's hard to pinpoint what the most valuable skill is I learned over the summer, I got to meet so many people, I networked, I got a deep insight into the world of PR, it was just amazing.

New York City is full of opportunities and CI helped me embracing them by supporting me 24/7 and hosting career seminars twice a week to keep everybody on track.

Those seminars every Tuesday and Thursday were super helpful, they ranged from CV Surgery to Mock Interviews to lectures in Business Psychology and Leadership. I absolutely loved them and went to every single one of them.

By the way, I made so many amazing friends there! My two roommates were the absolute best, we're still in touch now (one year later) and actually had a reunion last February. CI did an amazing job at matching us and putting us into one room together. Obviously, I'm in love with New York City now and came back this summer to work here again. Highly recommend!
