A summer internship in another city is the perfect excuse for a change of scenery, and you could find an opportunity at a company you never would have known about had you searched only within the Chicagoland area. If you’re looking to expand your horizons and escape Chicago this summer, consider applying to an internship outside the city at one of the following companies:
