Why intern in Chicago?

Chicago is the ultimate depiction of the best of both worlds. It’s bursting at the seams with world-famous skyscrapers, financial exchanges and corporate giants, but is draped alongside the beautiful backdrop of one of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan. It’s a powerful player on the global stage in commerce and finance, but its streets are overflowing with friendly, Midwestern locals. Nicknamed the capital of the Midwest, Chicago is where the bustle of the big city meets the charm and sociability of small town living.

There is no better place for your internship. Chicago is influential in commerce, finance, engineering, publishing and much more not only in the US but all over the world. No matter your interests, the opportunities in Chicago are endless. Home to the headquarters of multiple Fortune 500 companies and stock exchanges, Chicago confirms its importance as a global leader in commerce and finance. For those looking to boost their business or finance careers with leading internships, Chicago is a strategic choice. If you are creatively inclined, Ernest Hemingway’s birthplace will be sure to inspire you. Chicago’s cosmopolitan cultural scene will motivate you to go above and beyond. There is truly something for everyone in Chicago.

An open-air gallery of astonishing architecture and outdoor sculptures, Chicago’s Loop is home to everything from the world’s first highrises to some of today’s tallest towers and works by Picasso. Get a closer look at the architectural delights from the top of the Willis Tower, look out over Lake Michigan and quickly discover why Chicago is known as the Windy City. Discover more about these creative constructions in one of Chicago’s many world-renowned museums.

If museums aren’t your thing, head over to Wrigley Field, home of the beloved Cubs, and catch a game. If you find yourself needing to escape the hustle and bustle, make your way over to Millennium Park, check out Cloud Gate, commonly known as “the Bean”, and relax in one of the world’s most futuristic parks. Grab a slice of deep-dish pizza, Chicago’s delicacy and soak in the sights.

From Magnificent Mile to the beautiful beaches, the staggering skyline to Navy Pier, Chicago exudes global importance and embraces natural beauty. The city meets in the middle as a multicultural, Midwestern metropolis.
