Students interested in finding internships in certain industries need to begin searching early for available opportunities. For example, jobs and internships in the finance industry, government, and journalism often recruit in the fall for the following summer. Also, some of the larger, more popular internship programs, generally hire summer interns early in the process.
If you still need to draft a resume or update one to include your latest information, now is the time to do it so you don't miss out on those early deadlines for many of the more competitive internships. Some deadlines occur as early as October or November. You can begin your search by visiting your college's career center to learn more specific strategies and techniques for finding rewarding internships.
