Take an internship in New Jersey and travel the iconic turnpike, 122 miles connecting your doorstep to destinations in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennyslvania, and New York. Location is a decided advantage for New Jersey interns, who are poised to venture into Boston or New York City to the northeast, and into Piladelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. to the southwest. Geographically, besides Jersey’s famed shorelines and boardwalks, you’ll find farmland, plains, wooded hills, and tidal marsh.
The Garden State has historically been a leader of transportation and heavy industry. New Jersey internships place students in a hub of industrial research and development—can you guess where color television, the videotape recorder, and liquid crystal display were born? Newark in particular holds plenty of opportunity as the third-largest insurance center in the United States. Interns in New Jersey would do well to visit this port city to find positions with Prudential Financial and Mutual Benefit Life. Other potential employers include the New Jersey Peforming Arts Center, PSE&G, and Audible.com.
Think of New Jersey tourism, and you think of Atlantic City, the East Coast’s answer to Las Vegas. Having seen its heyday during the Prohibition Era, the Atlantic City Boardwalk embodies New Jersey’s travel and vacation industry.
