Groups on LinkedIn, and you should join as many as possible. You also need to be active in these groups; join in conversations, like posts, thank people for sharing information. Don’t forget about company websites. Do you have a few companies on a “Wish List”? Look at their websites, craft an interesting “Letter of Interest” and send it to someone in Human Resources (which is either listed on website, or can be easily found with a few clicks in the LinkedIn search bar). If there is no internship opening listed, perhaps your “pain letter” will create a need and you can fill it – be always creative and intentional in your correspondence. Finally, do not hesitate to tell everyone you meet that you are seeking an internship. Exciting opportunities often show up where one least expects it, your neighbor might have an exciting lead that you can uncover quite naturally. Networking is key to landing an internship – start early and be focused, and before you know it your resume will develop before you even graduate! Good Luck!
