Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

By Jason Chan, Ph.D. Fellowship and Career Advisor / Assistant Director As we near the end of fall semester and look ahead to 2021, the CCPA staff realize many of you may be thinking about summer internships. With COVID-19 throwing a wrench in many of your plans last summer and the ongoing uncertainty about what the pandemic will look like in the new year, some of you may be feeling concerned or anxious about finding and securing an internship. These feelings are completely understandable and shared by many college students across the country. The pandemic has shaken up the landscape of work and employment this year, and with priorities and resources being shifted around, employers are still figuring out what the future will look like for their organizations.  That said, many employers are continuing to offer summer internships. Some may already be recruiting but many will start recruiting after the new year and well into the spring. If you haven’t come across any opportunities in your field of interest yet, it may be that your industry has a slightly later recruiting timeline.
