It’s getting closer and closer to summer, which means that it’s crunch time if you are planning on doing a summer internship. Internships are perfect to do while you are still attending college, so you can gain your experience and beef up that resume and won’t be forced to do it post graduation in order to apply for your dream job.

When contemplating which internships you should apply to, why not look at some in big cities? Big cities are always buzzing with activity, and will give you the connections you need for a job later on. If they like you, they might even make room for you in their company as a full time employee, so it’s definitely worth a shot!

Here are some cities, courtesy of Dream Careers, that should be on your radar for a summer internship.

New York

Ah, The Big Apple, the land where dreams come true. New York could be your next big adventure, you just have to get out there and take it. New York is really happening for you writers who really want to score an internship, for you theater majors, for you fashion majors. But that’s not all, there are honestly internships for every major out there!

Dream Careers can help you secure your internship, so you won’t have to be stressing out to make the move for the summer if New York is a bit of a journey for you.

An internship in a place like New York means countless opportunities, both in the workplace and in your social life. When you aren’t working, you’ll be playing tourist, and adding to your view of the world.

New York is fast-paced, fun, and glamorous, and you might not be ready to leave after the summer. Who knows, your internship might help you score some great connections so you’ll be able to live in The City That Never Sleeps permanently once you graduate.

Los Angeles

If you are looking for a cool scene for the summer, why not check out L.A.? This city also has tons of things going on that you are bound to find something that tickles your fancy. With beaches so close and the chance to spot a celeb on the daily, why wouldn’t you want to move here?

Some possible internships that you could be participating in this summer are: casting, fashion, film, graphic design, music, photography, publishing, etc. Don’t those sound amazing? L.A. folk are all about getting big, so who says you can’t be one of them?

If the broad scope of this city is too much for you to handle 24/7, you can easily live in one of the surrounding cities, like Orange or Fullerton, so you have the city vibe for work, but can also have a slower paced atmosphere to go home to. No matter what type of person you are, L.A. will have something for you.


Internships abroad look super stellar on your resume, because going abroad is a big commitment! It shows you are dedicated, hard working, and can adjust well to change. If this sounds like you, then why not take a trip to Paris for your internship adventure? On weekends you can hit up the Eiffel Tower and gorge yourself on crepes filled with Nutella, and during the week, you’ll be interning in one of the most gorgeous cities that you ever did see.

This will give you a great reason to brush up on some French, another resume booster, and being immersed in the culture and language will change you for the better.

Paris is the fashion capital of the world, so if that’s what you are into, you should hop on the Paris train ASAP.

At the end of your internship, you’ll have tons of great connections, will have transformed into a world-class foodie, and will have memories to last you a lifetime.

San Francisco

San Francisco is it’s own little nitch that is bound to turn you vegan or at least vegetarian while you stay there. The city is one that will never get boring, and you’ll feel like a real life snazzy adult as you pump in your heels or your nice dress shoes off to your internship. Those hills will give you legs of steel, and on the weekend you can bike across the Golden Gate Bridge and bask in the never too hot weather.

San Francisco could be where you make your big break!

These are just a few of the many fabulous big city locations for your internship. Dream Careers makes it easy for you to search programs and locations, and they help you with housing, meal plans, activities, and much more, to make sure that your experience is more than just a resume booster — it’s a summer that will change your life forever!
