Available to all students and free to alumni for life, our services include career counseling, seminars, career fairs, and more.
Apply for an Internship
Get your foot in the door at iconic brands across industries, from Nike to Disney to the American Museum of Natural History and many more. Our internships are rigorously vetted to ensure quality and educational value. While you do your internship you’ll also take an Internship Studies class to make sure you get the most out of your experience.
For Internship Sponsors
By sponsoring an intern, your organization can discover new talent, get fresh ideas from motivated students, and help train the workforce of the future.
Experience That Matters
In a typical year, two-thirds of FIT students graduate with an internship under their belt. This real-world experience gives them a competitive edge in the industry.
