New York state sometimes feels synonymous with New York City—the largest city in the US with over 8.5 million people and a city known for it’s dominance in global finance, music, entertainment, media, and more. That said, when thinking about internships in New York state it’s important to remember there is more to New York than NYC. For example, upstate New York includes the cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Albany and more and provides opportunities for agriculture internships, political internships and more.
If you do plan to intern in New York City, there is a lot to look forward to. The city is constantly bustling and is the epicenter of not just the business world, but also a place where artists, musicians, and people from all over the world come together. The temperatures and climates vary greatly across New York, with upstate New York being extremely cold in the winter and receiving a large amount of snow, and with coastal New York City being more moderate. Regardless, you can’t go wrong with a New York internship.
