Hi there!

These are my top sites where I look for job postings. At first glance, I see some Physical Therapist jobs (missing the Technician piece though).
1. Glassdoor
2. Indeed
3. LinkedIn

Another option could be the American Physical Therapy Association jobs site: https://pt.az.associationcareernetwork.com/jobs/ . You could also look up other schools' Physical Therapy Technician programs and see if they have career resources to review.

In terms of internships-- if you are not seeing any formal internships posted, you could try reaching out to a clinic that is hiring and see if they would allow you to do an informational interview, or perhaps intern or shadow. You can frame the request like "I am currently studying/recently finished studying Physical Therapy at XYZ and I would love the opportunity to gain in-person experience." Essentially, create your own internship :)

Hope that helps!

Angelina recommends the following next steps:

Check out job sites for businesses that are hiring in the area
Reach out to those businesses to see if they would be interested in an intern, or at a minimum an informational interview
