I have two job offers for a design intern role at 2 top design agencies - one in SF, one in NYC. SF job: + pays a lot more + tech clients (i want to be in tech after) - wont sponsor visa - strict NDA so i cant put in my portfolio NYC job: + more interesting projects for my portfolio + product design role + will sponsor visa - pays less Considering rent in both cities, I feel $$ is a factor. Should I tell NYC job about my other offer and negotiate salary? Any advice on how to approach?

The primary objective of most interns is to receive training and network within a company, sometimes leading to a full-time job. Internships are common within the arts, culture, and journalism industries.

While some unpaid internships are not legal, many internships are unpaid. Candidates may receive stipends to cover basic expenses.
The highest paid internships exist in the finance, tech, and consulting industries, so do a little research and ensure you stay ahead of industry trends before pursuing a role. National or international corporations pay higher than local ones, and those working in metropolitan areas earn more than those in rural parts of the country. While industry, company, and location all impact your salary as an intern, earn more by expressing your interest and passion for the position. Enthusiasm for the role, a willingness to learn, strong communication, asking questions, reaching out for help, and the ability to work well with others impact your salary as an intern. Likewise, those with more industry and job-specific skills are more valuable to employers.
Since you're starting from the bottom, you won't have as much leverage in intern roles, but your experience and enthusiasm can make all the difference. After a job offer, emphasise why you want to work for that specific employer, what you love about the industry and the role, and what you'll bring to the position that other interns will not. Likewise, use any competing job offers as leverage, explaining to prospective employers that while you've got a strong desire to work for them, another company has made you a higher offer.
