Step 1: Pick a faculty advisor; The faculty supervisor may have prior contacts or can guide the student in the appropriate direction. However, it is the student’s responsibility to actually arrange the internship.
Step 2: Locate an organization appropriate to your interests: This is an important opportunity to learn something new and to obtain valuable work experience. Some internships are paid, such as those at New South Associates (a local CRM archeology firm). Call up or write to the organizations that best suit your interests, and ask whether they are accepting interns for the following semester. Although you may not find your first choice, you may discover clever ways to be flexible.
