About Christie's

Christie’s is a leading art business with auction sales that totaled $5.1 billion in 2008. The auction house traces its roots back to 1766, when English businessman James Christie had his first sale. Today, Christie’s holds auctions all over the world.

Interns that work in the specialist departments perform a variety of duties associated with the auction process. There are also opportunities to experience other aspects of Christie’s in departments such as estates and appraisals, finance, client services, human resources, marketing and creative services. A high percentage of interns rejoin Christie’s after graduation in full-time positions.


Applicants must be current students or enrolled in academic courses to receive school recognition for the internship.
