New York City Skyline During Daytime

In today's global marketplace, employers can choose the most gifted candidates from anywhere on earth, and even graduate degrees no longer guarantee prime positions. One old adage still seems to hold true: "You can't get a job without experience, but you won't gain experience until you have a job."


New York participants live in a residence hall complex at the St. George Residence in Brooklyn Heights, just one subway stop from lower Manhattan. The St. George Residence is a property of Educational Housing Services (EHS).
