1. Use the internet to search for likely internships.
Do a series of Google searches using interest area terms, “internship” and “Washington,” and “DC.” For example, if one of your ideas was “international aid,” you would use Google to search for “international aid internship Washington DC.” Each search will produce several organizations for you to investigate. Review the webpage of each one to see if it’s interesting to you. Keep track of organizations that show up in multiple searches. Look specifically at any information organizations give about offering internships (sometimes this can be under the careers section of their website).

DO NOT count the organization out if it doesn’t have any internship information, it only lists info for semester students or it only advertises openings for summer. If that is the case, try to contact the agency and ask to speak to someone regarding a possible internship.

TIP: If you already have an idea of where you would like to intern, take some time to research that organization’s webpage and compare it with some of the places you’ve found on your own. What type of language does your “favorite” organizations use to describe their internships/organization? Would those labels be helpful in refining your internship searches?

Some useful search engines and websites can be found on our Washington Program website:
