When looking for an internship, a place to get some job insight and experience, it is important to look everywhere! Like Jobipedia, there are quite a few websites that post internships, and some do list specific majors, however do not let that deter you from applying for a position you are passionate about. When a company interviews interns they are looking for potential employees and want someone that is interested in pursuing that field, position or career path, so don't hold back on going for it, if it is truly something you want long term! Be sure and do your research, prepare for the interview and make the most of your cover letter and/or application in convincing them you are the right candidate, not today but long term. Networking should also be something to consider when looking for an internship, remind everyone you run into that you are looking for an internship and be specific about your request including when, how long, and what industry. Another place to reference when looking for an internship specifically for Econ majors may be a local career center, whether at a local community college, university or community workforce organization. Best of Luck!
