It's great that you're eager, however, don't let "stinkin' thinkin'" get you down! You're early in your college career, so just breathe. To land an internship, you have a few avenues. First, continue to visit the career center. Second, talk to the professors in your major. They may have relationships. Third, talk to upperclassmen in your major. I actually landed my college internship in my senior year through the student network and that turned into a career. Fourth, try to diversify your use of job boards. Fifth, call companies or organizations that you're interested in directly. That sends a good signal about your eagerness. While you're looking, keep your grades up and get involved outside the classroom, as well. Good luck!
