More Internship Advice

If you stop by your school’s career services or campus library, or spend some time browsing in your campus or local bookstore, you’ll undoubtedly find one or more internship directories listing internship programs at organizations around the US. Several companies publish these guides, including Peterson’s Internships 2005 and The Internship Bible, 10th Edition. These books are typically well indexed so you can search for internships by organization, field of interest and geographic location.

Check Out Internship Sites on the Web

Once you’ve developed a list of internships, you can work with a career counselor to ready yourself for the important tasks to follow. Among them: developing and writing a resume and cover letter, learning how to follow up with prospective internship providers to keep yourself in the front of their minds, and preparing for internship interviews.

With time and diligence, your efforts will pay off — in an internship that gives you the experience you need to land the future job you want.
