City Internships Reviews
CI class of 2016
Submitted by EGargan - University of Exeter | January 21, 2017
My experience with City Internships is one that I will never forgot. Not only did I gain an internship at a great company which I throughly enjoyed and learnt a lot from, I gained a great network of like-minded individuals and the chance to meet with industry professionals. The program is extremely well organised and has helped me to develop skills that will be key when applying for graduate positions. Since my internship, the experience has been a great talking point in all of my recent interviews with other employers and it is widely seen as a great thing to have done. The CI team was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and delivered all of the activities in an engaging and fun manner. Additionally, they were a great form of support throughout the application process and helped get me ready for all of my interviews and in the development of my CV. I would recommend this experience to anyone as a way to kickstart your career at an early age with a great internship opportunity and invaluable support along the way.
8 weeks in London with City Intern
Submitted by Nick Toomey - Newcastle University | December 29, 2016
I was lucky enough to take an Internship through City Internships over the summer of 2016. For anyone who is looking for that vital work experience, I would highly recommend CI. The course gave me a brilliant insight into the workings of a business and has helped me gain greater career direction. The CI team were welcoming and engaging and made my time spent in London very enjoyable. I would strongly encourage anyone taking a CI program to fully immerse themselves in the social aspect and events as, for me, they were a highlight and were always great fun and well organised. Overall, the program goes above and beyond what could be expected of a normal internship and has put me in great stead for leaving university and building my career.
Accounting intern in LA
Submitted by Hannah Wishart - Newcastle University | December 28, 2016
Through CI’s global summer internship program, I was able to gain eight weeks working experience in an accounting firm in Los Angeles. Travelling has always been a passion of mine and this was the perfect opportunity to combine exploring a new city with a potential new career. As a current law student, I had zero experience within the accounting industry but it was the direction that I knew I wanted to pursue after graduating. Having applied and been accepted onto this program, the CI team were able to place me with the employer they considered the best professional fit for my career aspirations. During my time interning I gained hands on, practical experience in a tax firm and the seminars provided through CI, developed many techniques to use when applying for jobs (CV and interview tips for example) but will continue to be beneficial right through into my professional career.
Understandably, moving away to an unfamiliar city may seem like a daunting experience for many, but the CI team made this transition much more manageable and were always on hand to give advice whenever needed, no matter how trivial. Throughout this experience, I have grown as an individual in both a professional and personal sense, whilst becoming more prepared and driven towards my chosen career and having met so many people from across the world, sharing this experience with them, is something I cannot thank CI enough for.
Final words of advice – don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, this whole opportunity exceeded my expectations and more and if given the opportunity, would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Defining moment in life!
Submitted by arigstew - - | October 24, 2016
City Internships not only opened the door for me to get involved with the entertainment world in LA, but also provided perfect placement with the company I interned with. My bosses became my mentors! The experience encouraged me to make a cross-country move. And I gained life friends from across the globe that I can call family.
