Sad, perhaps, but true: If you want a summer internship, you need to start planning at the previous year’s end. In some cases, application deadlines are only weeks away. You need to remember that fellow students nationwide are competing for the same internships, and before you know it, you’ll be swamped with your spring-semester courses and activities. You need to act now.
