Communication jobs in NYC + where to find an internship

Hello friends! 

At the present moment, I am living on a clock, literally. In December I’ll finish my A.S in Multimedia Arts & Design and right after that I am transferring to Baruch to study Corporate Communications. I know it may sound very different but since I started my “internship” at the NY Federal Reserve Bank (like an internship – but not exactly that, as Fed doesn’t pay me –  I get paid by CUNY).  I’ve realized communications is fun and being able to deliver the right message to the general public feels awesome!

I was wondering all jobs available in the market -to be exact, in New York City, because that is where I live 🙂

As I researched, I found out multiple options for Communication/ Corporate Communication Majors!
Hopefully this list with help myself and others in the future. PS: This was my own research on Google using the NY job market as reference. Hopefully you like it!
