Finding an Internship


6 of 8

Contacting Employers and Prospecting for Internships
Telephone or visit employers in your geographic and/or career areas of interest and do some prospecting about summer jobs/internships. Be prepared to give a 60 second promo regarding your skills, strengths, and motivation for working for them. Focus on summer jobs available and, if interested, consider camp; or resort opportunities to gain additional interpersonal and communication skills. Temp agencies also provide information about the employment needs of local employers. Be sure to follow up with employers whenever possible to arrange an in-person or telephone interview.
