ASU Academic Department Web Sites
Go to an academic department's Web site that is related to the type of internship you have an interest in obtaining and do a search using "internship."
Completing an internship abroad is a wonderful way to test out a potential career and gain real-world work experience. Along with the potential to earn academic credit, students who complete an international internship expand their networks and develop transferable skills which give them a competitive edge after graduation.

These are job search engines that search the Internet for positions matching your keywords.
To obtain the greatest number of results when searching for internships, it is recommended that you not limit yourself geographically (by city, state, or zip code). Instead, use a fill-in-the-blank approach in the keyword search field that is descriptive of the type of internship you'd like: "_________ intern" i.e. political intern, nonprofit intern, artsintern, entertainment intern, conservation intern, international intern, etc..
Even if you DO need to complete an internship in a specific city, conducting your initial search this way will help you to identify and brain storm types of organization in your area to approach about creating an internship.

It is also possible to create your own internship by contacting employers in your field of interest and describing your qualifications, interests and how you can contribute to their success. Descriptions of existing internships are helpful to frame your discussion with a possible internship host. Focus on the advantages to the organization in hiring an intern, such as having an extra person to assist with projects, offer new perspectives on organizational issues and provide new ideas.
