In order to land that amazingly incredible summer internship, you have to start looking for them. But, where should you start looking? Try these sites you probably visit fairly often anyway:
After you have completed your profile, use the search box to search for internships or companies that you’d like to work for. Search combinations of your area of interest and the term “intern,” because you are searching through job positions. For example, if you are a communications major from L.A., you can search “PR intern” or “Communication intern.” Once you have started your search, there is a sidebar where you can input your location information. Also, be sure you are searching under jobs and not people or organizations.
Search for, and start following, accounts that post jobs having to do with your major. These accounts post all sorts of positions from all over- so keep your eye on these. Following these accounts will likely become useful later on (i.e. after college) as well. Search for a combination of your major or area of interest and the word “job(s).” Also make sure to follow your college, school, and career centers’ twitter accounts. They may have helpful information and internship notifications!
Most universities have websites specifically designed to help students and alumni find internships and jobs. Check out your school’s website again and look for a “Career Center” page or an “Internship Finder” page. Then plug in your major and voila!
Good luck on your internship hunt!
