How to find an internship:
Clarify your career goals:
Identify Career Fields and Employers of Interest:
Develop high-quality employment documents: a good résumé and cover letter are invaluable in getting the internship once you have found it.
Use multiple search strategies: don't rely on just one method for locating an internship. The search will be much more productive if multiple lines are followed. This can include, but is not limited to: the internet, networking, job fairs, professional organizations, direct contact of companies/potential employers.
