For students

Make Your Mark on New York City

We seek undergraduates with an interest in urban economic development as well as graduate-level candidates with MBA, MPP, MPA, MUP, and JD degrees. NYCEDC has tailored programs to help you gain experience.

Internship Program

NYCEDC hosts students for 10-12 week paid internships. We place interns within individual departments where they contribute to a variety of economic initiatives. Our interns can look forward to attending our educational seminar series in addition to events sponsored by the City Government Internship Program. When internships become available, they are available from our Jobs Openings page.

Project Management Program (PMP)

A highly competitive full-time program, the NYCEDC Project Management Program offers unique exposure to our different disciplines and departments. Program participants join NYCEDC as Project Managers and are placed in one of three divisions over a two-year period. Within each division, the participant will gain experience on a variety of projects of the departments. At the end of two years, upon successful completion of the program, participants have the possibility of being placed in departments as full-time employees. Core skills training includes finance, real estate, negotiation, presentation, and general project management, all designed to prepare NYCEDC Project Managers to work effectively across several disciplines. We seek bright undergraduates with a Bachelor’s degree in any field of study with 0-2 years of work experience to join this program.

Mentoring Program

NYCEDC’s Mentoring Program is dedicated to providing our members with a forum for career development, networking, and giving back. Our mission is to support employees at every stage of their career, including those who have just recently joined our organization.

The Mentoring Program provides:

  • Valuable guidance, knowledge, and insight from a Mentor that can be applied to professional and personal growth
  • Experienced professionals (Mentors) with the satisfaction of giving back
  • All individuals the opportunity to learn something new

Employees are invited to take a survey and, based on their professional interests and career goals, are placed into mentoring pairs. NYCEDC hosts quarterly fun events for all participants in the Mentoring Program.
