How to Find a Winter Internship Fast

Winter may still seem like a far way off, but your final exams are coming faster than you think. While you're putting the finishing touches on your assignments and studying for tests, you should also be thinking about what you'll be doing this Winter . If you don't have a job or internship lined up yet, don't panic. These steps will help you find a job or internship that will enhance your resume and your educational experience.

Step 1: Work on Your Resume

When is the last time you took a look at your resume? A well-written, concise, and professional-looking resume is crucial to finding a meaningful Winter job or internship. After you've completed your first draft, take your resume to your college's career center and receive feedback. Competition is stiff even for internships and part time jobs, so make sure your resume is the best it can be before sending it to any potential employers.

Step 2: Write a Great Cover Letter

A cover letter is never optional. You should write a tailored cover letter for each position, but you can have a template to work from that will help you along the way. Write a cover letter for a job you're interested in and take it to your college's career center. The adviser should be able to tell you what you need to change or add to your letter to get yourself noticed.

Step 3: Start Networking

After you've worked on your resume and cover letter you should start talking to anyone and everyone about job or internship opportunities. Talk to your family, friends, and professors and see if they know anyone looking for Winter help. Networking is one of the most effective ways of landing a job, so make sure you speak to everyone you can.

Step 4: Start an Online Search

There are literally dozens of job websites that have Winter internship and employment opportunities for students. While there is a lot of competition on these sites, they are still great resources for finding work. Do a daily online search for opportunities in your area, and try to apply as soon as you see a position you're interested in.

Step 5: Consider an Unpaid or Volunteer Position


Paid opportunities have the most competition, but that doesn't mean they will offer a better experience to list on your resume. Be open to taking an unpaid internship or volunteer position. These experiences will often teach you more than paid opportunities, which means you'll gain more skills you can use in the future.
