How Do I Get an Internship?

Savvy Community: No Internship Experience! Help!

This reader posted in our Resume Remedy group saying that she's having trouble finding an internship. Any advice?

I'm in a bind! I'm a recent graduate looking for an internship, but I can't seem to land one! Unlike most students, I didn't do any internships while in school (something I majorly regret). But what really stinks, is now i cannot even land one post-grad, it seems all employers are looking for someone with at least one on their resume. What do I do? I feel so hopeless. I don't mean to get all emo . . . but I just don't know where to begin — and I'm not getting any younger.

Ask anything about job hunting and resumes by posting your questions in the Resume Remedy group, and the community and I will help you out.

If you can't find an internship, I would try finding volunteer work in the meantime. There's normally always organizations looking for volunteer work (who would say no to free labor right?) From there, you can start building up a resume with your volunteer experience and increase your chances of landing an internship!

Try the President's volunteer corps., they have local assignments where you live you can get a yearly stipend of 16k; in some instances you get student loan forgiveness depending on your field, if you decide to work for them for a four year period. Good luck!
