Where do I apply for internships?
I'm currently a high school 11th grader, looking for internships, preferably over the summer. I'm looking to study Business and Economics in college. I am academically successful if that means anything. Thanks!

Please see the following lists tailored to high school students:
Best of luck!
I would suggest you create a lengthy profile on Glassdoor and LinkedIn. Keep connecting with HR's of different companies and send them an email and let them know about your career path. Ask them if there is something aligned to your career path and they have some opportunities for paid/unpaid internships.
It's highly likely that they would respond back to your first message, but keep trying hard. Start with making at least 30 connections per day and speak to at least 10 recruiters daily.
Here are three ways that could help you find an internship:
1. Check with you academic career center at your high school. The career center may know of opportunities for students looking for internships
2. Reach out to local businesses within the community. These businesses may have potential opportunities to for students within the community.
3. Create a linkedin profile. Linkedin is a great way to get connected with professionals and to start building your network.
Hope this helps!
If you are looking for an internship related to business, you might be interested in looking at internships with the big 4 accounting firms: PwC, Deloitte, KMPG, or EY.

I would research which companies or industries you are interested in and see what programs are available. You have a sleuth of options to chose from. I would utilize linkedin as well. Hope that helps you and good luck with your search.
Here are some that I found.
You can approach the HR department () of the companies & see whether they provide an internship.
LinkedIn will be the best source to get the contact info.
Drop an email to the person & ask them to guide to the right person if they are not the one who can help.
All the best !!
