Through his/her daily tasks, the interns will see how his/her actions impact the business, gain hands-on experience analyzing and translating data into business strategies and presentations, learn to work within a broader cross-functional team, and hone their time-management skills.

The program will run Monday through Friday; (exact schedules to be worked out with hiring managers). This is an unpaid internship. All interns will receive a monthly unlimited MetroCard. We will delightfully help interns receive college credit, if possible.
