The London Experience

“I would describe my London internship as the best experience of my life…

…Through my internship, I gained priceless experience working in finance along with a newfound clarity as to which career I would like to pursue following graduation. When I wasn’t working, I was lucky enough to make friends from all over the world and join them in exploring London and even traveling across the continent. While I truly believe any internship, regardless of location, is an excellent choice for a student to pursue, my London experience was an internship and so much more.” -Stephanie Hay, Summer 2013 Z/Yen Group Intern
