1. College website usually have a tab called something like "programs" which will list all of the internships that are offered to students at that school.
2. Research local companies on LinkedIn to see who has open positions.
3. Find or join groups at your school that share an interest in your major or things you are passionate about. Those groups may already offer internship opportunities, but if they don't the members of those groups may offer some valuable insight about what they are doing. People can share their experiences and what has worked for them. Make sure to reach out to them and ask questions!
4. Timing is important when searching for an internship. If you are looking for a summer internship, jobs are usually posted in January or sometime in the spring.
5. Make sure to turn in your application as early as you can to make sure you get an early response!
2. Using your connections, if someone you know is working at a company you’d like to intern with, approach them, present you strength and ask if they could assist you in the process. Asking for referrals from employees already working in the organization you're interested in. You can do this by simply searching the companies over linkedin and then writing cold messages along with your resume to a bunch of employees asking for referrals.
