Travel Opportunities

Kate: I got the chance to go to New York and DC. Six of us went to New York, from Boston, for two weeks, and I’d never been to NYC, so it was really exciting for me! Everyone at DDNYC was really cool, we loved the office, we got very close with the teams. It was great working with the other interns, but I have to shoutout Joanne, Maria, Ray and Cindy, who made us feel so welcome!

Marsha: Same here! I loved coming to DC too. The people here are so nice, even if they don’t stop to sign, they’ll tell you about their interest and have a great conversation with you. I found the trip to DC so valuable for building my skills, hearing other people’s experiences, and learning by pitching back and forth with everyone.

This 10-wk Internship Program will run 6/5 – 8/11, 2017.
