I am looking for an Information technology internship job /volunteer to gain experience.

I have used some job sites to find a job (career builder, indeed, snagajob) , but I got scammed.

Someone, please provide me a safe job site.

Nancy, you didn't mention the Job Sites that you felt were not safe, that will be helpful for the other students that read this question. John Frick

LINKEDIN • https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/internship-jobs/
Not only should you use LinkedIn to hunt for internships, you should build a professional profile and reach out to everyone you know, especially professional contacts professional networking site. Get people you’ve worked for to write you recommendations. Also include volunteer work.

To search for internship listings, go to the jobs tab at the top of the page and put “internship” in the search box. Then refine your search by filling in the boxes on the left side of the page. I searched for “Human Resources” in “Houston Texas” and it came up with ten pages of listings.

One downside: You can’t filter for paid or unpaid positions. Companies pay varying rates to list internships and jobs on LinkedIn (a 30-day posting can be as much as $499), so they are serious about hiring for many of those jobs. A possible downside is that the fee might deter smaller players.

INTERNSHIPS.COM • https://www.internships.com/
Internships.com is now owned by textbook rental and online tutoring company Chegg in Santa Clara, CA. It offers 100,000 listings from 60,000 employers. Internships.com does not charge employers to list positions. When I searched for “Human Resources” in “Houston Texas,” I only got 10 listings.

One huge advantage the site offers: a “who” button that lets you see which of your Facebook friends have a connection to a company, either because they work there or used to work there. Facebook has no job listings and no other site I could find that has the capability to match a job search.

Hope this is helpful Nancy
Thank you so much. Nancy O.

Following are the websites which are safe and known:

1. Linkedin (www.linkedin.com)
2. VolunteerMatch (https://www.volunteermatch.org/)
3. Internships (http://www.internships.com/student)
4. Glassdoor (http://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm)
5. Internmatch (https://www.internmatch.com/)

Note: For the safety and concern, it is advisable that you must search for the company more before applying. Glassdoor is helpful in order to read about the reviews of a particular company. Try to find as much information about the company and employees, to be sure that you are applying to a safe place.
Thank You So Much. Nancy O.
My pleasure, Nancy! Just stay alert and if you can't find any information about the company you have full right to ask the recruiter about the same. Furthermore, search on the Linkedin about the founder and the people who are working in that company. If you get an offer from a start-up company though there presence won't be much online, but at least by Linkedin, you will be aware that people are there in the company. Jasanpreet Kaur Bhatia
Okay. Thank you So Much. Nancy O.

I was referred to this site by the Atlassian leadership when I made a similar inquiry on behalf of my son, a college Sophmore. Hope it helps.

I see that you have been given several options but others. I would also recommend looking for internships directly with desired employers. For example, my employer has a section devoted to students: https://www.att.jobs/students. You should consider where you would like to work and look for businesses within the industry directly. I feel that is another way to be safe in your search for an internship.

Hi Nancy,
I'd say :
https://www.indeed.com/
https://www.dice.com/
https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/

Those are pretty reputable sites and easy to navigate and apply.
Glassdoor website is great for reading reviews of the company prior to applying, to get a feel of what other employees are saying :)

Good luck and do not be afraid to try.
Cheers
ThankYou So Much. Nancy O.

Hi Nancy,

Sorry to hear about your recent internship ordeal. Next time, make sure to vet the company on Glassdoor and LinkedIn before committing. If the company doesn’t seem legitimate, don’t pursue further. In my experience, LinkedIn usually has the best listings.
Thank You So Much. Nancy O.
