Julie,


As one of the answers mentioned earlier, your school's career service office would be a great resource.

I'd also recommend you (if you haven't done yet) starting your LinkedIn journey and follow industries and companies that you're interested in.

You can take the following actions on LinkedIn to open up more avenues for your future:

  • Follow industries.
  • Follow influencers.
  • Read companies' vision statement and specific solutions in their industry and assess if you could associate your needs and future with them.
  • Start following recruiters within the companies you like - they sometimes post internship openings before they are posted on corporate websites.

Some companies are not too active on LinkedIn, try checking their career postings the corporate websites every other week - set up a reminder on your calendar / phone so you won't forget checking back.

Hi Julie,


I think the Glassdoor (www.glassdoor.com) would be a good place to begin your search. It not only provides you with the detailed information about each internship opportunity, but also includes a lot of reviews from people who have interned/worked in that position before, which I found to be really helpful when I was looking for my internship. Also, the LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com) would be another good option.


Best wishes to you!

Hi Julie,


Does your school have an online career portal for internships? I would recommend looking into that, as I was able to find my first internship through my school's career portal. Otherwise, I would talk to your school's career services department for assistance - they should be able to provide you with additional information regarding information. You should also consider looking into your school's alumni network and, if an alumni is working in a field that interests you, reaching out to them.


Best of luck!


James
