How to get an Internship

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Having an internship is a great way to teach you more about your career path. At the end of the internship you may want to continue your career path or go a different route. It can also distinguish you from other students when applying to graduate school.

Here are some helpful ways to find them:

  • Visit the homepages of Universities/colleges.  Check to see if the school provides internships. Email professors at those schools asking about internships. Once you find applications just fill them out and wait
  • Check out the career center on campus
  • Look into non-profit organizations and social services organizations such as the Young Women Resource Center and Domestic Violence Alternatives
  • Do you have a dream company which you would like to work for? Check their homepage and see if they have internships you could take. This will be a great stepping stone  of experience with that company
  • Mentoring students or becoming a teaching assistant can help you get an internship
  • Speak to students in your major and alumni.
  • Networking. Ask around Tweet and Facebook!
