If you’re looking for internships, these 12 websites are all you need:
1) Monster College & Monster.com – Monster College, developed by one of the oldest and most popular job board Monster, is a site dedicated to internships and entry-level jobs for college students and new grads. Be aware that Monster College is a new site and more internship opportunities are found on Monster.com, so to ensure you won’t miss internship opportunities, browse through Monster.com as well.
2) CareerRookie & CareerBuilder – Formerly known as CBcampus, CareerRookie.com is a site similar to Monster College. It is also relatively new, so also keep an eye on its parent site CareerBuilder.com.
3) Yahoo Hot Jobs – Yahoo! Hotjobs also provide a comprehensive list of internships.
Monster, CareerBuilder and Yahoo! ask companies and recruitment agencies for a fee when listing jobs or internship opportunities, so there’s less chance of running into a scam. The large job board sites have too many internships too ignore, they need to be part of your search.
4) Internships.com – Internships.com, a website which recently re-launched with a new design, provides internship guides and maintains a large list of internships. It was designed to assist both students and employers on how to develop internship opportunities. It also boasts opportunities not found anywhere else.
5) The Internship Series on-line – This provides instant access to thousands of internships that are listed in Internship-USA.com’s 14 annual publications. It includes paid, non-profit and unpaid internships for summer, fall & spring. However, it can only be access by subscription, so make sure to check your Career Services Office at your college if they’re one of the 300+ college subscribers of this series.
6) Idealist.org – If you plan to intern with nonprofit organizations, Idealist.org is the first place you should visit because they provide a list of opportunities from community organizations not only in the U.S. but also from over 180 countries. Most internship opportunities listed here have positions involved in giving back to the community and making a difference in the world.
7) Experience.com – Experience, Inc began in 1996, just when the internet craze began. It is a website dedicated to students, so expect plenty of career information, internship guides and opportunities from companies. What makes experience.com different from other job boards is that most of the contents are written by students who share their personal experience.
8) Internqueen.com – Founded by Lauren Berger who became famous for completing 15 internships while in college, Internqueen.com provides a list of updated internship opportunities.
9) Ed2010.com – If you’re looking for publishing internships, whether on newspapers, magazines or online, Ed2010.com should be the first website to visit. Ed2010.com is a home to young magazine editors who want to learn more about the publishing industry in hopes of landing top writing and editing positions. Now, the website also lists down writing opportunities across the U.S., Canada and in the UK.
10) GoAbroad.com – For anyone interested in completing an internship abroad, GoAbroad.com offers thousands of international opportunities under its websites Internabroad.com, volunteerabroad.com & studyabroad.com, among others. It was designed to link potential travelers with organizations abroad.
11) Indeed – Indeed.com is an aggregator website that posts internships and job listings from newspapers, job boards, associations and company pages. Once you register at Indeed.com, you can save searches and have internship opportunities (related to your field or choice of location) delivered via email.
12) Simply Hired – Like Indeed.com, Simply Hired aggregates job listings from job boards, placement firms, employer’s websites and other sources.
Both Indeed.com and SimplyHired.com are aggregators. The main difference between aggregators and search engines like Google/Yahoo is that aggregators don’t index searches, which allows them to search from many search engines.
No matter what website/s on this list you decide to follow, make sure to register and complete your profile on every site. Utilize these websites fully and set-up a search agent that directs all opportunities from each site to your e-mail or RSS feed. Once you’ve finished setting up the right set of keywords (for your chosen field, location, interests or other preferences), you won’t need to visit each website again.
An updated LinkedIn profile can also help you with your search. Not only does LinkedIn serve as your online resume, it also helps you build connections with people from inside the company you wish to intern on. Once you receive internships from these websites and find a position you are interested in applying for, do a people search for employees of the company (if the hiring manager is listed use them) on LinkedIn. Click on the search results profiles and LinkedIn will tell you how close you are networked to the individual. The goal is to have a mutual connection refer you for the position.
There are many more job boards online. If you want to check your other options, you can use websites such as www.Jobfox.com, www.Dice.com, www.Jobsonline.com, and http://www.jobboardreviews.com.
