Alex and Erik of University of Illinois and Cornell

In our continuing efforts to serve the interests of our community, Chicago Architecture Today LLC offers an internship program available to undergrad and post-graduate students as well as students enrolled in online bachelor degree programs. Although internships are typically awarded to 5th-year students or graduate students, we believe that this type of work opportunity can also be a valuable educational experience for beginning architecture and/or communications majors as well. Chicago Architecture Today has enjoyed students interns from home and abroad including Ireland, England, France, Germany, Spain and South Korea. If you are majoring or planning to study any media-related or architecturally-related field, we invite you to gain some valuable experience with us.

"I would like to give you my much appreciated thanks for giving me the opportunity to work with and for you. I was just discussing this with Alexia just a week ago or so when we were both reflecting back on the summer and everything we did and so forth. I told her I was really happy that I found Chicago Architecture Today because I learned a hell of a lot about how to approach and interact in professional situations and I felt like this was my most successful internship. So once again thank you so much for getting me out there in the city, exploring, discovering, and learning. It was an experience I will NEVER forget, Thank you. I look forward to working with you in the future again sometime. Cheers!"
