February 8, 2011 | Jobs & Internships
NBC Universal, Bloomberg, and Deutsche Bank are expanding their veteran recruitment outreach. Through Four Block, each of these companies are offering internship positions for this upcoming summer. Student-veterans from Hunter College, Brooklyn College, and NYU are student-veterans that obtained Spring 2011 internship positions at NBC Universal through the Four Block program.
Hundreds of students nation-wide apply for internship positions at these companies and only a select few get accepted, so it is a big step for student-veterans to lock-in several of these internships every year. The majority of the interns hired ultimately receive job offers at the conclusion of these internships.
Four Block is a veteran-owned company that was launched by a student-veteran in New York City. Our mission is to help companies understand the value that veterans can bring to the private sector.
Here’s how it works:
1. Students apply for an internship via Four Block. Applications are due by 18 February 2011. Applications will be processed and routed to companies as they are received — so sooner the better.
2. Four Block screens the applications, conducts a short phone interview with selected students, and then routes the applications to the company.
3. Student-veterans may receive resume and interview training (time dependent).
4. Four Block arranges the interview for the student-veteran and the company.
In order to apply for an internship, students must send the following documents to firstname.lastname@example.org by 18 February 2011. All questions will be directed to Andy Cheng at email@example.com. Please send all documents in a PDF file and label (Last name, First Name Document).
- Resume (with cover letter specifying which company you are applying to and why)
- Transcripts (can be unofficial)
Below is information regarding the internships available at each company:
- The internship will be located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC.
- Interns must be at least a current sophomore.
- Interns could be pursuing an associates, bachelors, or masters degree.
- Interns must be getting academic credit for the internship or “letter of support” for the internship from your campus.
- Internships are unpaid (if receiving college credit, the GI Bill will continue to pay for your housing and expenses).
- Interns are placed in every function or department at NBC. Your placement with a department or function depends on your degree or what you want to do. NBC does not want to limit veteran internships to a particular department. So, it is up to you…you can learn more about the opportunities and departments at the link below. Be sure to refer the “East Coast Internships.”
***Your experience as a student veteran intern will be different from the normal intern. NBC will be organizing lunches for you with business leaders, providing networking opportunities with existing veteran
employees, and you will be participating with the veteran affinity group, which includes lunches, dinners, and community outreach. The goal is to make this experience very unique and to get you a lot of exposure within the NBC community.
- Fully paid internship, 10 weeks, starting June 3 and ending 8/12.
