September 24, 2001: InternshipPrograms.com
InternshipPrograms.com is a site that has evolved considerably since it became part of WetFeet.com. An internship-seeker used to have to navigate through multiple layers without much payoff. Now, however, internships listings are plentiful and much easier to access. There’s a bit of a trick to searching, however. You can search/browse by location, category, company name, or most popular internship programs. If you’re open to any location, you might think you should search under your category plus “Any U.S. location — Not Location-Specific.” If you do, however, you may turn up minimal internships. Those with some flexibility in locations should search by category. In test runs, we turned up loads of internship listings in most categories, but listings were more limited when we searched by location and especially limited when we searched by location AND category.
In addition to searching InternshipPrograms.com’s extensive database of internships, you can post your resume to employers who are exclusively looking for interns, read internship reviews, create your own real-intern profile, or research companies and careers on Wetfeet.com.
