Finding an internship takes time and A LOT OF EFFORT.

 

This post should make that hard process just a little bit easier.

Before we dive in, let me encourage you from an alum who knows what she is talking about!

 

"Be persistent! Often times your resume and portfolio, not to mention your character, are perfect for a company, but the powers that be don't have time to read through everything. Sometimes it's about more than just putting together something that stands out. Keep in touch, send them emails, and call them on the phone. Don't stop until you have a clear "no"! This is how most of the interns who worked for me received their positions."

HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

Helpful Hints on How to Search and Apply for Internships:

 

 

1. Get yourself organized BEFORE you begin searching and applying for internships. Head to THIS BLOG POST to grab a FREE Job Hunt Excel Sheet that will keep you organized as you prepare your documents, search for opportunities, and apply.

 

2. Know what you are looking for. You will get overwhelmed very easily if you begin searching for internships without focus. Answer the WHO, WHAT, WHERE questions as it pertains to an internship or job:

 

WHO: Who do you want to intern for? (Can be specific companies or a description of the type of companies you like)

 

WHAT: What area of the industry? What do you want to learn? What do you want to do for the company?

 

WHERE: List the towns, cities, states, countries you are interested in living in for an internship or job.

 

 

 

 

3. Use the information you wrote down in Step 2 and begin searching for opportunities on these sites:

 

GREAT FOR EVERYONE:

 

GREAT FOR FASHION STUDENTS:

 

 

Use social media to your advantage. Follow companies you are interested in. Watch for internship postings.

 

If you are going to do this – make sure your profiles looks awesome so IF they decide to look at you – they are impressed.

 

If you need help with key terms to use in your searches, HEAD TO THIS POST. It has a long list.
