First of all, it’s great that you are recognizing that finding an internship or summer position will be helpful in your future career path. While most large companies begin filling their summer internship opportunities around January-February, I don’t think it’s too late for you to find something. Try to find a position that is related to what you are studying but keep an open mind. For instance, if you are an Accounting major don’t limit yourself to just accounting internships – Also look in related fields like Tax, Payroll, Finance, Procurement, etc. If you are unable to find an available paid internship, consider volunteering with a local organization that is in need of services related to your major – This will still look great on your resume and show that you are interested in your field and contributing back to your community.
