6 Online Resources for Internship Opportunities

As college students pack their bags for summer, many of them already have internships lined up, and many are suddenly realizing that they need something to do for the next few months. Whether you have planned ahead or not, there are plenty of places online to search for the perfect internship for summer, fall or spring terms. Check out some great sites to help you get started:

Because the comic book genre consists of such a wide array of professionals, from creative, to business strategists, to tech experts and computer programmers, the internship opportunities are massive. Marvel routinely looks for interns for Fall, Spring and Summer terms in tons of cool areas, like art returns, editorial operations, production, online marketing, web design, product management, social media, inventory, sales, publishing, accounting, licensing, information technology, human resources, and digital comics.
