Congratulations on getting started in high school looking for an internship.  Such foresight and early preparation will help provide real world experiences, and will be a good resume builder while connecting you with people who could be key contacts and/or mentors who can have a positive impact on your career for years to come.  If there is a specific industry you're interested in,  go to the trade association website or directly to companies and search for opportunities. You may also seek in-person events that you can attend in your area. For example, students can attend local marketing association and ad club meetings available in many cities.  (For example, one of the largest trade associations for marketers is the American Marketing Association. There are also local ad clubs such as those sponsored by the American Advertising Federation.  College campuses with advertising/communications majors often have chapters - mine did and it provided hands on experience and direct access to advertising professionals while I was in college.)  Go to a luncheon, network and ask about internship opportunities.  There may be student rates available - inquire about them.   (When I was a college student, I signed up for an internship through my university and attended a luncheon with my mentor.) Search LinkedIn communities for listings - many post internships. Or call agencies/organizations directly.  Many have organized internship programs but may not promote them.  (You'd be surprised how few students do this. I ran the internship program for an agency I worked for and loved hearing from students directly - it showed initiative and confidence.) A great resource for lists of businesses of all kinds in various cities is the "Book of Lists" by the Business Journals (published by the American City Business Journals in markets where available).  The lists are organized by industry and specialty - and the list is available to subscribers of the Business Journal publication.  Your local library may have a subscription to a local edition(s) which you should be able to access with your library card.  Hope this helps!

James’s Answer

James Hout Productions is a marketing company that utilizes film and television to market our clients. We often use interns for any number of tasks. Our interns find us, and we're not listed on any websites associated with internships. The potential intern finds us, learns what we do, and if they are interested, contacts us with a request. The point is to demonstrate that ambitious people will find what they want and accomplish their goals. My advise to you is to first decide which of the many roles in marketing you are interested in and then begin a search of the companies that are listed under your topics. There is no point in contacting companies that don't fit you interests or criteria. Next visit their website and see if they have an internship program, some do, some don't. However don't scratch off your list those who don't. Get your personal info together and start applying for internships. Now contact those on the list that do not offer internships, some will respond in a positive way. For example, James Hout does not formally offer internships, yet we do have a number of interns on various marketing and film projects. The bottom line is; learn how to market yourself. contact people, don't expect instant results, be persistent, and be flexible. There may be website directed at internships, but James Hout and companies we work with don't use websites to find interns, they find us! Don't depend entirely on others to do your research, do your own and don't leave any stones un-turned
