City internships is an incredible 8 weeks that you will never regret taking part in. They will find you a specific internship in the field that you want which will help you immensely when applying for graduate jobs. The team at city internship is always really helpful and make themselves available whenever you need them. I would highly recommend CI to anyone who is looking to add experience to their CV and do something unforgettable over the summer.
Great program, great people

The CI experience was incredible! They set me up with an awesome internship where I got to work with some of the biggest companies in my industry. In fact, I was able to work closely with Forbes and Blackrock.
CI also set up bi-weekly events for us that really help you get the most out of your internship. The CV Surgery and the networking events were especially useful!
Overall, I would urge anyone considering joining the CI program to do it. You will quickly make great memories and meet a bunch of great people! Not to mention the fact that you will have an internship in one of many amazing cities!
A challenging but fulfilling experience, with the help of an excellent team.

I coordinated with City Internships to secure a six week internship for the Summer 2017 season, focusing on a social media internship with a company in the West Coast (Los Angeles/San Francisco). Despite the fact that I was unable to physically be in LA for my internship and the duration of the 'Global Explorer' program I signed up for, CI were flexible enough to work with my unique case to ensure I could still work remotely for my company based in LA from my homecity, Hong Kong. Their staff from admissions to career consulting were very helpful, answered my questions/concerns promptly, and kept in touch with me regularly to ensure I sent necessary information/documents to them. The company I was assigned to via CI, Le Dessein, was also professional and I enjoyed working with Eric Coly (CEO of Le Dessein) to understand how a business operates its social media along with how the fashion industry works between consumers, social media influencers, and fellow companies (specifically those targeting the sustainability industry). CI furthermore, gave me good resources to improve my interview skills and resume.
I would highly recommend CI again for future internees looking to secure an internship, learn more about key industries they are keen to enter, and to polish their interview skills/resume simultaneously. However, those who decide to do a remote internship with a company (due to personal circumstances or by choice), should understand that doing so requires far more responsibility and will be more challenging to deal with for the duration of their program.
City Internships - LA summer 2016
Submitted by Grant Simpson - Strathclyde | August 07, 2017
I interned in LA in 2016 and doing an internship in LA was one of the best things I've done for my CV, future employers have always been really impressed and it gives me a lot to speak about in interviews. CI’s seminars, classes and events also gave me a valuable insight into the corporate world and taught me a lot about the importance of networking, both professionally and socially, which was one of the most important things I took from the program.
My internship was in marketing for an event company. I learned a lot about the industry and what the day to day role of a marketing job actually consists of - something you don't really learn at university. I also benefited from having a great boss and brilliant colleagues who encouraged me and helped me thrive in the role - and it was a great way to expand my professional network into a different country.
The CI Team are always at hand to help you with anything you need and are great at putting on social events and excursions - making sure your always having fun during the program. While they are always up for a laugh and are a really cool bunch of people, they also know their stuff when it comes to the professional side of things and are excellent mentors.
The CI program was one of the best things I've done in my life - I made friends from all over the world and got to experience an amazing city in LA, and also gained invaluable skills and experience that have helped me become more employable and develop my professional expertise.
A great summer!

CI is a fantastic program. I really enjoyed not only my internship but the career development and networking opportunities they provided as well. The people and friends that I have made are some that I will never forget. Thanks for a great summer.
