Seeking an internship for the summer
I am a sophomore majoring in Accounting/Finance, and I have previously studied Accounting in my high-school but with IFRS. I was awarded 2 national awards under Accounting by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) board when I gave their examinations. GAAP is similar, and I do have a bit of experience in GAAP as well since I have taken relevant courses. I am looking for internships in NYC for Summer 2018! So what are the best possible ways to land a summer internship and where to look for them?
Often, larger companies will have a specific section of their website dedicated for interns. I would recommend identifying some companies in NYC that interest you, and then seeing if they list any available internships on their website.
(There's usually an intense interview process, so I definitely recommend finding people that you know at that company and asking for a referral.)
For example, I work at Salesforce. While we're HQ'd in San Francisco, we have a New York office. Here's our webpage for college students: https://www.salesforce.com/company/careers/university-recruiting/
I would recommend visiting the career center at your school. Many colleges have a database of job and internship opportunities that you can filter through to find what best matches your career goals. This is how I found internships in college, which eventually led to a full time job offer at Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC). I would also recommend speaking to your professors, because sometimes they have connections at companies and can help you through the application process. There are also a few websites than help college students find available internship opportunities, including https://www.wayup.com/ and https://www.youtern.com/. Best of luck!
