Provide a company internship in NYC

HCZ currently has nearly 500 students enrolled in college and we promise our students paid internships during their summer breaks. Please look into whether your company could take on one of our bright, motivated students. Internships give our students the opportunity to work in professional environments where they are able to gain meaningful work experience.  It also helps students pay for college tuition.  If you can help provide an internship opportunity, please send all information to This email address is being protected from spambots.
