As we all start, continue, or finish up our college experience one thing that is all in the back of our mind is jobs. Like many college students we look for the experience not many others have so we stick out to employers upon graduation. I have been lucky enough to receive an experience of a lifetime.
I was given the opportunity of a lifetime this past summer. Last school year I came across a program called University of Dreams. Even though I thought the name of the program was shady at first, I knew that I couldn’t pass up this experience. After completing my journey this past summer in Los Angeles, I can tell you that these 2 months were best time of my life.
University of Dreams has programs throughout the whole entire calendar year. They offer summer, fall, and spring internship programs for undergrad and graduate college students in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Washington DC, Boston, Las Vegas, Barcelona, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Costa Rica, Dublin, Shanghai, and Toronto. The internship program provides guaranteed internship placement, housing, meal plan, planned weekend activities to the best tourist attractions in the area, a weekly seminar series, and daily transportation to and from work.
Right now I won’t bore you with all the details of what a great program it is, but what I can provide is a first hand look at what I experienced. I am doing this because I strongly believe in what the University of Dreams provides students. Whether you know me or don’t, I encourage you to leave questions in the comment space below my own experience.
My internship was at Universal Music Group in Santa Monica, CA. We worked with artists such as Lil Wayne, Akon, Taylor Swift, 3 Doors Down and Kid Cudi. Team projects, networking and office skills we some of the professional tools that we acquired that will last a lifetime and will surely benefit me in the immediate future.
Finally, some of the amenities that the University of Dreams Program and the City of Angeles provided students across the world that worked along side of me, were several Hollywood movie premieres. Transformers 2, GI JOE and Inglorious Basterds were just a couple of hit movies we had the privilege of seeing. University of Dreams also allowed us to attend theme parks like Disneyland, Six Flags and Universal Studios. The city of Los Angeles hosts such events like the BET Awards, ESPY’s, Teen Choice Awards, the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Malibu Film Festival. There are other events going on the city from watching a Dodgers baseball game at and enjoying various sports at the Staples Center at the brand new downtown LA.
The city of Los Angeles is such a hot spot because of all pillar companies and amazing sites to see. You can attend the Grammy museum, ESPN Studios and the Nokia Theatre. Some of the popular companies that interns usually choose from are Warner Brothers, NBC Universal, Fox Sports, Hogan Communications, Craig Anderson Productions, NBC Studios, Cashmere Agency, Morgan Stanley Business Firm, American Rebel PR, Tom’s Shoes, Paramount Studios, CBS Sports, CBS Studios, Dick Clark Productions, KTLA, Sony Productions and GO TV.com. University of Dreams will take students on a overnight trip to Las Vegas and close out the summer at one of LA’s famous clubs called Club Les Duex. So pack up your bags this summer and hop on the University of Dreams internship before it’s too late. Trust me…you won’t regret it!
