College Career Center
Your college career center is a great resource that can do a lot for you. Most career centers keep a database of internships that students at the school have previously worked.
The university career center works with employers and companies that have hired interns from campus to build a network of highly motivated students looking for internships. Schedule a visit with a career counselor at your college. They’ll gauge your interests, career aspirations, and ideal location and help you find an opportunity that’s perfect for you.
Friends and Family
Ask your friends about internships they did this summer – do they have an opportunity they could recommend to you? Consider questioning your family members too. Chances are, they have internship opportunities at their place of business looking for hard-working, motivated interns like you next summer.
Additionally, friends and family that suggest internship opportunities could also provide a recommendation. This type of personal recommendation would help you stand out from the potential intern pool.
This last opportunity will take a bit of cold calling on your part. Identify local businesses and corporations in your hometown or college town with career paths that interest you; call the human resources office about internship opportunities.
If they do not have a structured internship program, they may be able to customize an intern experience for you. Calling shows that you are interested in an internship and their company as well—and flattery can go a long way in this game.
