Where can I find an internship?
April 17, 2008 9:44 AM   Subscribe

I'm a third year Visual Communications major looking for graphic design internships in the S.F./Sac/or inbetween area. Where can I find more places to apply?

I've checked craigslist, mefi jobs, and the usual job search places. I'm looking for jobs that may be easier to miss, under the radar, or less advertised.

By the way, I forgot to mention I'm looking for this summer.

Consider looking for companies that have an in-house Graphic Design department or similar. For example, I work in-house for Sony Computer Entertainment in Cambridge, UK. When I was looking around for jobs, I didn't even know they had an office here, let alone a graphic design department.

Out of interest, you might be cutting it a bit fine applying for the summer. There is a media agency in the UK called Imagination, they handle all of Ford's contracts. They had a nine month waiting list when I was at Uni. The bigger the company the choosier they will be! Looking for companies under the radar as you are is definitely a good idea.

I'm also slightly unsure of the American definition of Visual Communications, but I'd be assuming it's in the field of Graphic Design?

Try calling the career services centers at some universities in the area (Berkeley, SF State, Sac State, etc.) and ask them. They should be able to help you and I'm sure they are used to dealing with people scrambling at the last minute for summer internships.
