Here's what some of our Internship Alumni say about the program:

?This was the best opportunity for me and the highlight of my summer. I got to work in a comfortable and friendly environment where I was free to ask any questions and was given comprehensive and thorough answers. I learned so much, from guerilla marketing strategies to simpler things like the use of Google Apps to help organize one?s workday and for even bigger projects. The target tasks each day helped me build skills in dB management and also helped me think about a company from a dynamic growth perspective, how to improve and grow the business every week. After my internship was done I received a very positive Letter of Recommendation, will helped me land some great interviews!? Richard Philbert ?My summer with ProspectBArk was an instrumental step in my professional development. Chun-Soon provided a structured and safe environment to fine-tune my craft. She was also remarkably good at suggesting workarounds when I was stuck on a code issue. After the conclusion of my internship, Chun-Soon not only offered me multiple freelance opportunities, but also connected me with contacts of hers that led to more paid work. I have now been employed full-time in my field for just under two years, and the first step was absolutely my time with ProspectBArk.? Shawn Rice, ?Erum, you?re simultaneously the VP of Marketing and the Marketing Intern? is what Chun-Soon told me when I asked her if we could try an email strategy I?d read about in an article. Basically, discuss pros/cons of your ideas with Chun-Soon and run with it if it?s a go. If you?re someone that is motivated by hands-on real work, zero corporate red tape, stimulating strategy conversations, and a very sharp and passionate mentor? apply yesterday!? Erum Akhtar

Internship Requirements :

We require 16-24 hours per week (2-3 days)

The program runs for 3 months from your start date

You must be able to commute to our office in the Hudson Valley (Newburgh NY near Mount Saint Mary college), approx 90 mins north of Manhattan. As our interns are often juggling classes, coursework, another job and personal obligations, we can be very flexible in scheduling the required hours!


Please send us a cover letter, resume and any letters of recommendation / references you might have. In your cover letter, please tell us a bit about yourself and why you are seeking a Business Finance Internship. If you have any experience with budgeting, expense tracking, investing and growing assets, tracking financial targets and meeting them (even if it is only for personal or school projects) please tell us about that! We'd love to hear about SPECIFIC improvements you have brought to previous companies, projects or internship programs where you were tasked with monitoring/improving the "bottom line" or bringing a runaway budget to heel. What are your career goals? Are you seeking school credit? Are you looking to start or grow your accounting service or firm? Do you have any experience working on a business budget, investment portfolio, tax profile? Do you know how to analyze the success of your work in these categories?

Do you want to learn all of this, and more, in a one-on-one THREE MONTH INTENSIVE?

We look forward to hearing from you!
