Internships – New York
Tarisio’s internship in New York will offer openings three times a year to coincide with our fine sales in Winter, Spring & Autumn.
Our 8-week program is designed so interns can be immersed in the entire auction process from start to finish and build a foundation of strong work ethics through experience in a diverse office environment.
Working directly with senior staff, you will be an integrated member of a dedicated and passionate team. By the end of the internship, you will have gained a thorough understanding of the unique roles each member of the Tarisio team plays as well as the business operations of an auction house.
We are currently hiring an intern for our Spring auctions. This is a paid position in the form of a stipend.
Tell us why you would be our ideal intern and what you hope to gain most from working with Tarisio along with your resume and what school you are currently enrolled in or recently graduated from.
To apply, please send answers to the following questions in no more than 50 words each along with a PDF copy of your resume in the application form below.
