#2 Strategy - Finding Internships Through Online Databases or Company Websites

Strategy for Finding an Internship
By Penny Loretto,

Visit your Career Services Office to find out more about what they have to offer. CSO’s maintain a number of databases for finding internships and can provide passwords for sites they subscribe to.

Many companies include internships on the career or employment sections of their website. Check out the career or employment section of an employers’ website to see if they do offer internships and what types of internships they offer. Many large corporations offer a variety of internships in areas, such as: finance, marketing, advertising, accounting, public relations, journalism, human resources, etc.

Select a number of different internships and be sure to follow the application instructions precisely.

Keep applying to internships of interest as you find them until you have received a definite internship offer. Students will often think that once they have applied to two or three internships they can sit back and wait until they receive an offer. The truth is that many internships are very competitive and until you hear back from an employer – don’t assume that you will be accepted. Be proactive by continuing to apply to new internships as you find them.
