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!

Shannon’s Answer

Hey Michael!

I found a lot of my internships by looking up companies I wanted to work for and looking to see if they had an internship program. You can utilize your school's career center (they might have a forum of open internships), utilize Linkedin, or connect with your professors to see if they have any advice (or connections). I used Google too and just looked up internships, be specific with your location and industry in the search bar. (EX: music industry internships in Philadelphia).

It takes time, but it's easy!!! and exciting!!


Hope that helps you. Good luck with your search.

Shabeer’s Answer

Hi Michael L.

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 !!

Thanks

Internships are awesome! Pending on what type of internship you would like to do, you can choose a company/field and go directly to their website. Often times the company will have it posted in the "career" section of the website. Hope this helps!!

My first step is to always Google!

Thank you comment icon Thank you! I greatly appreciate this! Michael
Thank you comment icon HI Atzin, Gurpreet here from CareerVillage! Although your response is much appreciated and addresses the student's question, sending a Google link isn't the most helpful way to respond. Any additional insight you have for Michael would be helpful Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Riley’s Answer

I would start by creating a LinkedIn account and start searching for internships in your area, while also messaging/connecting with professionals that work for those organizations. Making these connections early on will increase your chances of getting an opportunity to work or have an internship with that specific company.

Beth’s Answer

Hi Michael. It's great to get any work experience that will help you learn what you enjoy and don't enjoy! I am a fan of any kind of work experience to start - if you have already had a job - retail, food service, waiting tables - great! If not, ANY JOB is great! But if you can get a job in a field area you are interested in - that's even better! There are so many resources for jobs/internships. LinkedIn is a great resource. Indeed.com seems to be a good source as well. Good luck!

Jacob’s Answer

Hi Michael! In addition to the great resources already listed above, I would highly encourage you to leverage a network you may not realize you have. Talk to any adults in your life (teachers, counselors, parents/guardians, coaches, family friends, etc.) and see if these individuals either work in a field or at a company that interests you. If not, see if they have connections that do, and ask for contact information. Reach out to any contacts you find, and express your interest in learning about their career and any potential internship opportunities. It's great that you're already seeking an internship, and I cannot understate the importance of leveraging your personal connections. Best of luck!

Simeon’s Answer

I would reach out to your teachers and see if they know of any internships or work opportunities. Check the websites of companies that you'd like to work for someday and send inquiry emails. Even if a company doesn't know of an internship, they might know of other companies that do offer internships. If you can't find a summer internship, you could also try working at a summer camp. You'll make a lot of new friends and you can often leverage new connections to find job/internship opportunities.

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.

In addition to all the resources available through the interest, I would suggest reaching out to the teachers to see what other resource they can share with you to help you find internship or volunteer opportunities.

Akshay’s Answer

Hi Michael,

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.
