Finding Internships Using 3 Different Strategies

By February 13, 2013

Follow me on:

Students often believe that applying to online internship sites is enough to get a summer internship.  Career professionals believe that in order to achieve success, students should be using these three strategies:

#1. Networking

#2. Online Resources

#3. Prospecting

In addition to finding internships online, many organizations look to fill positions based on referrals and from people they already know.  That's why networking is so important when searching for internships.  On the other hand, prospecting can provide additional opportunities and can be found by calling or sending emails to employers to inquire about potential internships.
