Career Connections Internship Boot Camp

May 17 – 22, 2020
New York City

The goal of the Internship Boot Camp is to inspire students to be leaders in their future careers and to equip them with the tools needed to excel in summer internships and beyond. Over the course of five days in New York City, students will take part in professional skills workshops and guest speaker presentations at StreetSquash Harlem. Each afternoon, the group will travel to company offices for a tour and private meeting with leaders at that organization. Evening activities include squash hit-arounds, cultural outings, and a dinner reception.

In addition to daily trainings, Boot Camp participants will receive guidance from our guest speaker series and gain a glimpse into dynamic work environments through afternoon visits to offices and company headquarters in New York City.
