What are the best internships for my major and minor?

I am an undergrad student studying psychology pre-law with a minor in criminology. I would love intern to in any of those fields I mentioned! It'll be an honor to get experience before going to graduate school and eventually into the real world. #psychology # #clinical-psychology #criminology #student #internships

Hi Makalah! I was Pre-Law and majored in Political Science during undergrad. It's only been a year since I graduated, so I remember how overwhelming it can feel to find internships and other experiences related to your field of choice. Personally, I interned with a non-profit organization that supported refugees and immigrants in my city. I also worked with a non-profit that helped with adult literacy in my city.

My advice is to look into organizations in your city that interest you. For your interest in law and criminology, you could apply for positions at the statehouse, like the Page Program, and get paid to work for state congresspeople. You could volunteer for Legal Aid, an organization that offers legal council to people with low incomes. There are so many organizations and programs out there. Think about certain things that get you going...that you are passionate about...and apply to intern or volunteer! There is no wrong direction to go in. Graduate schools and future employers will be impressed with any internship you get if they can tell it pertained to your interests and passions.

Makalah, I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions, and good luck. You'll do great!

Hello! I was a pre-law major with a minor in psychology. I wanted to become a judge. I did an internship at the County District Attorney’s office. This internship gave me great insight to legal field. I interacted with victims, police, district attorneys and judges.

You can do a google search in your city you live in with the key words you mention above. This will tell you which companies hire people doing the type of work you want to do. Then you can see if you can work there as an intern or volunteer to do work with the company.

You should also ask people if they know anyone in that field.

If you are looking for internship for a law clerk, identify law firms in the region you live in and ask to volunteer.
Some will take you and pay stipend or also work for free if it is something that interest you.
Other options are to seek internship for a nonprofit organizations like ACLU, Equal Justice Initiative, The Bail Project and others.
This will be good experience to make your resume. It shows you care beyond making money.
