How the internship Program Works
Enrolled students work closely with BGIA staff to identify internships that match their individual interests and goals. They are guided through the cover letter and resume writing process and, most importantly, students are able to take advantage of BGIA’s extensive network in New York City to secure a part to full time professional internship. Once the internship begins, each student is assigned a staff mentor at their internship to support them throughout the program. Students, BGIA staff, and internship mentors work closely together to ensure a successful and productive internship experience. Additionally, students participate in BGIA workshops that help them smoothly transition into professional life through sessions covering interview skills, workplace etiquette, and networking, among other topics. Additional panels provide candid discussions of various career paths and advice from young professionals.
