What experience should I include for my first college internship if I haven't had any experience in this new field?

I would included any work experience, there are transferable skills from many roles.  If you have taken classes in the area include them on your resume as well.

I agree with the post above in that you should showcase the classes you've taken or the projects in school you've worked on.   Often times those experiences are very relatable to jobs you may apply to.  Take the time to highlight your leadership skills, teamwork, engagement on campus, etc.  ~Good Luck!

Since you are so early in your career, any experience is good experience at this point. If you held a part-time job while in school, showcase that because it will demonstrate your work ethic. In addition, I would recommend highlighting any coursework or project experience that relates to your major and/or the position you are applying to. Case competitions are a great resume builder as well. Lastly, highlight your extra-curricular experience and leadership experience. Employers like to see well-rounded experience and involvement, so anything helps.

Most employers will understand if you don't have previous experience in a field when seeking an internship.  Look at any previous experience that you've had through work, school, or volunteering activities and practice speaking to how those experiences can bring value to the opportunities you seek.  Often when looking for an intern, qualities such as curiosity and work ethic are mainly what employers look for.  The skills of the job can be taught during the internship.  Good luck attaining your first internship!
