The best websites for finding a summer internship

It’s almost summer and that means that it’s internship season! I interned all throughout college and I know that I was really fortunate to not only get great opportunities, but also to be able to afford to take unpaid internships. Interning helped me learn professional skills and learn more about the types of industries and work environments where I would thrive. Plus, if there hadn’t been a hiring freeze, it would have helped me turn an internship into a full-time job.

Here are some of the best resources for scouting out a summer internship.

Campus Job:

Campus Job helps college students find internships, part-time jobs, and freelance work at companies around the country. It’s a great resource that is specifically for students.


LinkedIn is not just for connecting with colleagues and posting a profile. LinkedIn has an excellent job search feature. You can save jobs, apply to jobs right from the platform, and view open positions at companies where people you’re connected to work. Use advanced search to specify salary, location, industry, experience level, and job function. Click to find out more about the position and the company. It is great for researching for an interview. Some companies have robust profiles which include videos, information about company culture, recent updates, and more. Similar jobs at different companies will also show up – making finding a job a bit easier.

Levo League:

Levo League has a jobs board and company pages. Read about positions then go to the company pages to learn more about the companies hiring. You can connect with other Levo League members and mentors who work for the organization. Learn in-depth information about the company culture and values and read testimonials from current or past employees. This information can help you determine whether the job and the company is right for you.


Use Glassdoor to search for jobs and find out intel from insiders. Search for jobs, view company information, and read anonymous reviews from people current and past employees. Current and past employees can fill out reviews indicating pros, cons, advice to senior management, whether they’d recommend the company to a friend, and whether they approve of the CEO. It is helpful to read through the reviews, but take them with a grain of salt because the people who fill out reviews are often only people who fall on either end of the spectrum. You’ll read reviews from people who love the company or people who hate the company. Not many people will write a review if they don’t have a very strong opinion. You can also read about people’s interview processes and whether or not they were accepted. Sometimes people say the questions they were asked, how long the process took, and whether the interview was “hard” or “easy”.

The Muse:

The Muse gives you a very holistic (and beautiful) view of the companies on their jobs board. They feature companies in a wide range of industries. Use the search feature to select an experience level, location, and type of position. Click on a job to read the job description, responsibilities, and required skills, then go to the company page to find out more. The Muse hires photographers and videographers who go to the office to take photos and film interviews, giving you an inside look at what it would be like to work for the company. I referenced details I had learned in my cover letters and interviews – it definitely made it clear that I had done my research! has thousands of internship listings. You can also search by major, industry, location and more. The Internship Preditor will even help you narrow down on your personal preferences and personality type to find the type of internship you’re likely to enjoy.

Your Alumni Network:

When I was in college, my university had a great job search engine that made it easy to apply to jobs and contact alumni. I recommend checking whether your school has a similar website or whether career services can point you in the right direction.
