    I have been working at Development Counselors International as an intern (less than an year)


    This was by far the best internship I've ever had. I was consistently challenged and held to a high standard by my team and learned an incredible amount in a short amount of time. My supervisor gave me a great balance of freedom and guidance so that I felt supported, but was given a lot of free reign to tackle tasks on my own. I was writing client content and pitching practically from day one.

    I was also treated like a full member of the team, which I can't say was true of any other internship I've had. My hard work and strengths were respected--I never felt like "the intern."

    Plus, you really can't beat the office vibe--fun, hardworking and fast-paced with just the right amount of friendly competitive edge.

    I'm happy to say that my hard work payed off in the form of a job offer at the end of my three-month internship. This is fairly common at DCI. If you're a rockstar intern, your hard work will be noticed and you will be taken seriously as a potential future candidate. As a very recent college grad who was looking for just this type of opportunity for growth and professional development, I highly recommend this program!


    You have to be willing to work hard. This was not a con for me in any sense (because I love work hard/challenging myself), but I imagine it could be for certain people. If you're looking for an "easy" internship just to fill your resume, this internship isn't for you. If you're ready to learn a lot and feel challenged/motivated to keep growing professionally, you'll love it here.
