There's a site that you can use called LinkedIn. This site basically allows you connect and talk to people who may work in the field that you are interested in. A time like this would be perfect for you to connect because many people have a lot more time or their hands. See if there's any work you could possibly help with now (maybe for free), just so you can gain some experience and get in good with the company you want to work for.

Good luck !
Hi Xavier, Thank you for the suggestion. I am quite familiar with LinkedIn in terms of connecting with people, but haven't done much internship searching on their platform. I appreciate you pointing me in the right direction! Hope all is well and that you're staying safe + healthy with friends and family. Best Regards, Ian Ian M. Translate

Hi Ian,
Network, Network, Network. Look for opportunities on LinkedIn. If there are companies you are interested in, be sure to follow their company page on LI as well. Connect with individuals that work for that company. But more importantly, be sure to connect with your professors or counselors at school. They are a solid source of information for helping you locate an internship. Even if it's too late for this summer, you could land a fall internship part-time while still attending classes. Many internships lead into full time employment! Good luck!

Good question, at this moment during this time, which this is recently happening to a lot of company who will be offering summer internship due to the situation that is happening right now, that is virtual internship and there are some company who is start offering virtual internship, which you can apply for internship while working remotely. A lot of these internship you can apply over the internet or at their company website. Just google it and type virtual internship along with the type of position you are interested in and a list of company will pop up for you to see which one you will be interested in applying for.

Hello - check out some companies that are of interest to you and then see if there are any connections through LinkedIn (if you don't have a profile, do that today:)). Many companies are moving their internships to virtual so look around and then apply or place a call to someone who can help. I've recently had students at my alma mater contact me about internships in the finance field.

First, I would suggest just reviewing your resume and making sure it is up to date. Considering you will most likely be working online if you start now, you should definitely include any significant computer skills that you have. Other than that, just apply to any place that might have an opening and follow up. Contact the hiring team a few days after submitting your application, this will not only make your name more memorable to them but it will also let you know where you stand and whether they are even still hiring.

I would definitely start searching on LinkedIN. Or if there is a specific company you are interested in working for, you can find out who their hiring manager is and ask if they'd be willing to do a virtual program with you .

I would recommend making some connections! Having someone you know within a company will oftentimes skyrocket your chances of being hired for an internship. I would first look into anyone you or your parents may have a connection to, whether professionally or personally, and see if there is anyone in a company that you are interested in. Rather than asking them to get you a job, I would recommend telling them that you are job searching for a position in HR and ask if they have any advice. Oftentimes they will offer to speak highly of you to their employer, and even if they do not, they will almost certainly offer some advice or other connection to get you in the field you are interested in.
If you are unsure/don't have anyone you know to contact, I would recommend using Linkedin to meet new people. Find a company in your area and find a person in HR, and send them a message explaining, very simply, that you are a student interested in HR and would love some advice if they are willing. It may open the conversation and allow them to get to know you better and give you a much better chance of standing out in the resume pool, and again, if that doesn't happen you will still likely receive great advice moving forward. I hope this helps, good luck!
