Hello Stephanie!

I found my internship during college at the career fair. These fairs usually carry tons of companies with recruiters to tell you what having an internship would be like. It's a great way to get to know what opportunities are out there. I highly recommend attending a career fair and bringing along many copies of your resume! Plus it's a great way to meet professionals. Best of luck!

If you're not aware of any internships right off the bat, it wouldn't hurt to reach out to your professors and see if they know where you might find internships in the fields they're teaching for. Additionally, you could try sending emails to the companies themselves and see if they are aware of anyone who offers internships. Lastly, make sure you're building a network of people in your field so that you have more ways to find out about internship opportunities.

Network, network, network. Use social media (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn) to try and find people in your field that you would like to go into. Ask them specific questions about their field and tell them why you would be a great asset in the same field. If there is a company you would like to for in your area, see if you can setup a meeting. Use job apps and apply to jobs where you meet the skill-set of what the company is looking for. Lastly, see if you can get into contact with a recruiting firm who might be able to job place you. Good luck with your career search!
