The Next step is to Networking & Personal Connections.

Collect contact information for anyone who may be able to help you find an internship in the U.S. Reach out to them via email or phone and let them know that you are looking for an internship in the U.S. in your field of interest. Even if your contacts are not working in your particular industry, they may know someone who is. Although there may not be any available internships at their company at the moment, they can refer you to their own contacts and will keep you in mind if something becomes available.

It’s also very important to be proactive! If you are ever in the U.S. on vacation, try to set up informational interviews with employers with whom you would be interested in interning. This is a great way to learn more about a particular company; it’s also a way for them to consider you should an internship position become available. Read our blog post on networking for more tips.

We wish you all the best in your search of an Internship program.
