Ken’s Answer

The same process applies to finding internships as it does to finding a job. So, the answer to your other question also applies here.


However, you have much more control over your internship quest than you might think.


Let me share an interesting story about internships:


During my daughter's senior year in high school, the highlight of the year (and of the whole high school experience) was to be a several month long internship program. Everyone signed up and indicated the type of internship that they wanted - all except for one girl. This girl wanted to become a doctor and wanted her internship to be with the local EMS unit at the local fire station. So, she talked to the head of the EMS unit and got his approval and made arrangements with the school to create her own internship. Of all of the students about which I heard, she was the one who benefited the most by her internships. My daughter's was definitely not the highlight of her school career. Her first choice fell through and her final assignment was not really what she wanted and did not give her the type of exposure that she had hoped for. 

 

This shows that you can create your own internship! Locate a company that fits the parameters of the type of experience and exposure that you are seeking and work with them and the appropriate people in your school to put it in motion. After all, if there is an internship program existing today, anywhere, it had to be created by someone.

L’s Answer

Hi Ashley,


In my opinion, I think your first step should be to figure out what companies you would like to work for. From there, you can visit their career site to see what internships they offer, and see if anything matches your preference and major. From experience, I know that just searching for an internship blindly is not only time consuming but not productive. By narrowing your scope, you will have a much easier time figuring out what internships you would like to take, relevant to your degree.


Kind Regards,

L recommends the following next steps:

Search for the companies you would like to join.
Explore the company's career site and see what they offer.
Some companies offer general applications. Meaning, your sending in your resume for no specific position. Take that opportunity to express your interests when submitting.
