Tips on getting a summer internship? (electrical engineering)

  1. Jan 27, 2013 #1
    Hey all I'm a student in ontario, canada looking for a summer internship for this upcoming summer (June - August)

    I have 4+ years of professional work experience (marketing, business development, public relations and IT), a bachelors degree in media technology but fell in love with electrical engineering naturally and went to college to pursue a 2 year technology diploma.

    As such, I know experience is key and i would love to get a summer internship that will hopefully transition to something stable afterwards. Any suggestions? Tips? Websites or resources that I could use? I honestly am up to travelling anywhere in canada, and even the usa if the opportunity arises. I really have no qualms so long as I can get in with an employer that will give me a chance to prove to them that I'm a quick learner and a hard worker.

    FYI my college does offer a 12 month long co-op program but with my experiences and being a bit older I am hoping that I can find a small stint on my own and go full time when i graduate next year. A risk yes...but I'm sure I can find something!

    Thanks everyone!
