14408938623_7a857155f3College students know that a summer internship is an absolute must. The trick is finding one that’s right for your schedule and your career. Luckily, those four years of undergrad are the best time in your life for networking. Your campus is filled with resources to help you succeed and the world is filled with open doors for college students who are looking to learn. Here are the four places we’d turn for a summer internship opportunity:

1. LinkedIn
Even though you’re still a student, you should be signed up for this career network. Start building your network and your profile and you may even have recruiters reach out to you! There are also plenty of open opportunities to peruse within the site and applying is easy.

2. Your professors
It’s never a bad idea to get to know your professors. They’re connected to your industry and may be willing to put you in touch with some of their own connections for internships or even job opportunities.

3. Your college career center
Don’t overlook this campus mecca. At the very least they can help you brush up your resume and interviewing skills. Be sure to take advantage of those mock interview sessions and get rid of any nerves before your next interview.

4. Your own network
We’re not just talking about friends here. Reach out to family members and friends of family members too. Your network might not be involved in your industry by their network might be. And everyone is willing to help a friend.
