City Internships

Our Global Accelerator Programs in Paris, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco are filling very quickly, and I anticipate there will be no places remaining after the New Year. As such, I would like to take the opportunity to ask interested students to apply sooner rather than later.

Students can of course continue applying to our other larger and longer-running Program locations; which are London, Los Angeles, New York City, Miami and Washington D.C.

For a short reminder of what we do: our Programs are open to students from any year and with any major, and they may choose a placement in one of 9 career fields: Banking & Financial services; Consulting & Professional services; Law & Politics; Technology & Engineering; Marketing, Advertising & PR; Media, Entertainment & Journalism; Art, Fashion & Design; Start-ups & Entrepreneurship; Charities, NFPs & NGOs.

Students may be directed to apply now at: https://city-internships.com/apply

For those who wish to review our Prospectus which explains our Programs and offering, you may find it here and also a printable Noticeboard Flyer is available here.
