The Center for Career and Professional Development is excited to share an opportunity that was brought to us through the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. The NYC Digital Internship Initiative is a partnership between the Knowledge House, Student Dream, and Bloc.

The NYC Digital Internship Initiative will host 600+ virtual paid internships this summer. This is a three-part program consisting of:

·       Upskilling courses addressing digital skills

·       Putting skills into practice by working collaboratively on a project developing plug-ins for a community resources site

·       Externship where interns will meet leaders in the NY Tech industry

Students or recent alumni do not need any specific qualifications, but should be interested in the following career paths:

·       Software Development

·       Data Analytics

·       Digital Marketing

·       Product Management

·       Technical Customer Support

·       Contact Tracing

·       UX

Applications are open now, so we encourage students and recent alumni to apply as soon as possible.
