Looking for a summer internship

  1. May 24, 2014 #1
    I'm looking for a summer internship but I don't really know what to expect. I don't have a degree, I'm still finishing my D.E.C (2 year science program in Quebec that comes inbetween grade 11 and uni) and I probably have the knowledge equivalent of a 1-2 semester-in undergraduate in the US. I'm interested in physics and I was thinking about taking the opportunity this summer to do something related to that. I was going to post something on craigslist and see if anything comes up. I could MIO one of my physics teachers but I have no idea if they are even involved in any kind of physics related work. I think CEGEP is somewhat similar to a community college in the US, except it's a required stage before uni.

    Does anyone know of some kind of work or have any advice about what I could do to get some experience this summer? I apologize for coming off so naive, I'm just wondering about some different possible things I could do this summer.

    I know you're new to this, but...

    You are very very late to be looking for a summer internship right now. Your search should have begun in February or March at the latest.

    I am not as familiar with opportunities in Canada, so I don't think I can be of much help there. If you manage to find summer work of any sort I think you ought to be grateful. Sorry...

    Ya I had a feeling this was the case, I was just making sure I considered everything.
