Sites like LinkedIn and Glassdoor will be a great starting point. For both sites, you can customize your profile such that they email you with opportunities that fit. When I was searching, I applied to as many jobs as I could, even if it wasn't 100% what I wanted to do to get interview experience, have options, and increase my chances of landing a position in general. If your school has a career center, it might be helpful to reach out to them as well. Given the pandemic, a lot of companies will hire to work remotely so in that sense you might have additional options that aren't limited to your geographical location, so keep that in mind during your search. Good luck!

It's very hard to find opportunities in our current situation. However, researching opportunities through your school, counselor's office would be a good first step. Also, a, lot of companies post internships on their website/job board. If there's a specific company you'd love to work for, I'd advise going directly to their sites. Or you can also try posting you're inquiry on LinkedIn or other job sites to see if you get a response. It's a great way to network!
Good luck!

Usually, you university career counseling centre would post the internship openings from time to time. On the other hand, the large corporations would post the opening online on their own website too. You can explore.
If you have any industry / corporates that you are keen to seek internship opportunities. You can also send email / letter to their HR Department to explore the opportunities.
On the other hand, you could also explore any working holidays opportunities in other countries if you do not mind to work overseas. It is an very good opportunity to gain working experience and the culture of another county. But, probably, it may need to wait until the pandemic is over.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

there’s a LOT of demand for internships. The HR managers get hundreds, sometimes thousands, resume from students on the daily. So, you need to somehow stand out from the masses, even though you have 0 work experience with a good resume and cover letter.
