Don't be discouraged! Securing an internship can often be difficult, especially in a market where there are hundreds of qualified applicants with similar experience. I would take a step back and look at what you can do to better place yourself as a candidate. If companies are calling you, then your resume is likely solid and you should consider brushing up on your interview skills. If you aren't getting called at all, have someone look at your resume and consider updating it. Your career center is a great resource for all of this! Utilize them to review your resume, help with interview prep, provide career guidance, etc. A lot of career centers have a team dedicated to helping students with these things.
Also, tap into your network. Use your friends and family to help connect you with employers. Or, if you're in a student organization, utilize the relationships your group has built through that. Student organizations can often allow for more personalized opportunities to network with employers.
Don't give up! You're definitely not alone. I recommend just continuing to put yourself out there!
