Some Internship Sources #2
Internship and Career Fairs.
Most colleges (or college consortiums) offer at least one career fair during the academic year, and often one focuses specifically on internships. Even if you are looking for an internship in a different geographic location, go to the fairs and network with the recruiters. Many organizations have multiple offices — and you may later change your mind. Check out one of our other free tutorials, Career Fair/Job Expo Tutorial.
Many (if not all) colleges now ask alumni if they would be willing to sponsor current college students as interns — and these alums are a great source for internships as well as a networking source for other internships. Take advantage of this resource! This information may either be found in the career services office or the alumni office.
If you have already identified a specific set of companies where you would like to intern, you should consider going straight to the source by visiting the career section of each company’s Website. Try our Quintessential Directory of Company Career Centers.
