I would like to pursue a summer internship for next year. I really have no idea how to do this and would like some input on where to look, when to apply, and anything else that would help me find a internship.

I am a math major and would like an internship in this field.

Hi Riley!


Internships are a very good way to test out different career opportunities before committing to a full-time position post-grad, so you're definitely ahead of the game. I'd definitely say reach out to your professors. Often times they have worked in the field before teaching and/or have a large network they can reach out to in order to help guide you. I know many schools also hold career fairs where companies come to recruit new students for both internships and full time positions. If you can reach out to your career center and get a list of the companies that will be in attendance, you can do research on what different companies have to offer before going. Math can be used in a number of different fields so be open!


Good luck with the process!

Hi Riley,

It is really great to hear that you are wanting an internship and are beginning to look for one. Finding an internship is not easy by any means, but getting one will set you up for immense success when you graduate and look for a full time job. If I were you, I would ask your friends who have the same major what opportunities they know about. Usually someone will have an "in" and will know about a company/firm that is taking on interns. Also, I suggest going to your school's career center and making an appointment with a career coach (if your school has one). Career coaches are a great resource as they are very knowledgeable and it is their ob to help you out. They have lots of resources for students like you and should not only be able to point you in the right direction, but they also will help you with your application and essays when it comes time to apply for an internship.


I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck in finding an internship!!


Best,

Austin

I would utilize every resource your school offers. An alumni network is an incredibly effective way of getting your name out there and discovering new opportunities. The added bonus is that you already have a topic of conversation for small talk...your school! Outside of that I would make a professional LinkedIn profile and begin following groups and company pages that interest you.
