How to find internships

With the advent of the Internet, there are more resources than ever to find your dream internship. Here are some primary websites to aid in your search:

In addition to online resources, most universities have resources available to students right on campus. Career fairs or interviewing days are common ways that universities help students on their internship search, according to Charles Harris of the Knight Division. Getting help directly from your department, whether it be journalism or public relations, is another easy way to find internships right for you.

Joining a communications-related national organization such as the Society of Professional Journalists or the Public Relations Student Society of America allows students access to further internship resources in their designated field.

Lastly, it never hurts to email your resume and cover letter to your favorite newspaper or magazine (just make sure you find an appropriate employee email or address). You never know what they're going to say!
