Tyniquia great question. I'm not sure what year you are in college, but based off of personal experience and that of my friends, you want to be researching and applying to internships as early as possible. Four years may seem like a long time, but honestly is flies by so quickly and you don't want to be walking across the graduation stage never having had an internship. If you haven't started already looking for internship opportunities, start now!!

Check out your college job board, make an appointment with a career guidance counselor, and talk to friends that share your major and interest. All the above options are great resources to utilize to landing the internship of your choice. I did my first internship the summer between my sophomore and junior year of college and I wish I looked earlier. My internships were the highlight of my college experience and I wish I started earlier so as to do more. There are tons of internship opportunities for freshman and I was too focused on going home for the summer that I neglected to take full advantage of what my university offered in terms of internship-finding resources. I hope this helps!!

Hi, Tyniquia!

Internships are a wonderful way to discover what you would like to do, or not like to do. As a result, it's always a good time to do an internship! There are different types of internships, varying in degrees of involvement (meaning from shadowing a person for several days to actively participating for several months). The internship itself will have stipulations as to age, year in school, prior classes or experience, etc.

Take a look now. Depending on what you'd like to do, there is an internship ready for you. Volunteering is also another option to gain this experience and may be a way to also boost your resume in the process. There are many wonderful organizations that need help.

Good luck!
