6 Weeks in NYC
Submitted by NYCintern | October 21, 2016
My time in New York with the intern group was one of the best experiences of my life.
I found the planning stages of the internship quite stressful, the visa process was left until the last minute, meaning that I was unable to book my flights until the day before I was due to leave. For anyone applying I would recommend that you persistently check up on the visa process, and ensure that you can be lenient about your start date.
Other than that, the whole experience was fantastic. I stayed in the upper west side accommodation Hotel 99. It was basic but fine, each room had a fridge and tv, and the shared bathroom was kept incredibly clean. There were no gym facilities at this accommodation however, so if this is important to you that may be an issue. The accommodation was very similar to student halls, not luxurious but totally fine.
The best part of the experience was without a doubt the weekend social activities. Brian was the most wonderful tour guide and made all the trips and events really good fun. Everyone was really keen to make friends and I always felt included in all of the activities.
The internship itself was good fun. At first I didn't feel that my job matched the description I had been given, but Kathryn from the intern group was really helpful when it came to sorting this out.
I would urge anyone who is on the fence about applying to just go for it. New York is a city like no other, and everyone should get the opportunity to live there at some point, even if only for a little while!
London to New York

For anyone looking at applying to The Intern Group I say, do it. I was extremely nervous and worried about everything and anything a person could possibly ever worry about, but as soon as I met up with others on the programme and the programme co-ordinator I realised I would be just fine. I have had the most amazing experience making new friends and learning a new culture that I will remember forever. The trips are great, the accommodation (as long as you don't expect the Ritz) is fab and the people are wonderful. The only thing I would say is be a bit fussier about your placement than I was, I've learnt valuable experience that I am sure I will use however if you're looking at coming for a longer period of time than I did, make sure the company is somewhere you REALLY want to work. 6 weeks has not been long enough! Thank you Intern New York!
The Intern Group - thumbs up!

Great program, great place, great people!
Travelling all the way to Australia was obviously very nerve-wracking (especially if travelling to the other side of the world like myself). However, upon arrival the Intern Group were very welcoming and I met people who were also on the program almost straight away. Events were also put on by the program throughout my stay (e.g. zoo, sporting event, bar crawl, wine tour etc.) This meant I immersed into the Aussie culture straight away and also got to constantly meet plenty of people all around the world, learning about their culture, as well as experiencing this new one together.
The Intern group were also great at fitting people to their internship perfectly, this including myself as well as other interns I met throughout my stay. My internship lasted for a total of 8 weeks, however I continued to stay for an extra 6 months due to my internship offering me a job. So staying was a no-brainer really! (Maybe I'll never leave).
Applying to this program was the best thing I ever did, 100% no regrets.
Megan Brittan - production internship review
Submitted by Megan - University of Warwick | October 13, 2016
Overall, I had an amazing experience! The company I was with provided the opportunities that I was looking for through contacts, not scheduled productions. Therefore, it is hard to say that using Whiteboard Pictures again would give an intern the same experience I had. Whilst I was in New York, I worked on 6 commercials, a feature film, a short film and a TV sport - an incredible amount of work for a 9 week placement. It was tiring, hard work and everything I wanted it to be! As for the Living/Social side, the location of 92Y is perfect; an amazing area and easy access to the Subway for getting to work. The accommodation itself is not the best, but is made up for by the gym membership that comes with it. The social events on the weekends (the ones that I could make when I wasn't working!) were typical and well organised. I would suggest some more variety for those staying more than 2 months. The program's assistance with Visa's and accommodation is invaluable for those interning abroad for the first time.
Most challenging and valuable experience in my life!

I always knew I want to do an internship in NYC as it is perceived as being one of the most competitive and challenging places in the world. Besides having many opportunities, NYC is a place where you can never be bored.
I applied for an internship program through Intern Group who provided me with 2 options. I had 2 interviews and I have been selected to intern at the U.S. Senate. I have been so happy and thankful that Intern Group was able to connect me with the Senate which is one of the most competitive places.
I need to say that the placement has been delayed and procedure of applying was really stressful. However, I was really happy once I have been placed.
If you are interested in politics, foreign policy and overall work at the Senate office, this is the best place to do an internship. I was an intern for 2 months, full time. Staff highly appreciates work of interns. If you work hard, they will notice it and you will progress day by day.
I did my best and therefore I was selected to attend Oath Ceremony and recite pledge of allegiance in front of 65 people who were naturalized. This was a great honour an privilege!
During an internship I also volunteered for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Intern Group staff is really helpful. Make sure that you apply soon enough so they will place you ASAP. The hardest thing was to obtain visa on time.
Staffer Nicolas was really helpful and always responded immediately to my emails. Also, Brian who was our experience coordinator, tried really hard to make us feel like we are all one big family.
After finishing this internship so many doors have opened for me. I am really thankful to InternGroup! I would suggest everyone to apply. It is worth the money you pay, indeed. I cannot think of better long-term investment.
