About the New York Program
What is included in the New York Program?

We understand interning in New York is a big step and one that can be quite daunting to figure out. Therefore, we make sure to help you every step of the way. Our New York Program will include a paid internship, J-1 sponsorship, visa assistance, travel and medical insurance, regular social and cultural events, 24/7 emergency support, end-to-end service, dedicated account manager, extensive resources, and free US sim card. Before your trip begins, you will receive a pre-trip welcome pack that will include extensive travel and professional resources, your sim card, and all necessary documents needed before your arrival. We will work to ensure you are 100% ready to roll in the Big Apple.

When is the deadline to apply? 

Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis. However, we would recommend that you apply no later than 3 months of your desired date. This is due to visa processing times.

Capital Placement partner with over 1500 companies across all of our destinations, therefore, we do not have a static list of all our partner companies.
