Obtaining your dream internship is not an easy task. Doing this actually takes a lot of time for planning, along with complete dedication to the whole application process. The good thing is it is by no means impossible to have your dream internship; if you really know what you want. It doesnt matter, what major you are taking or how big your target company is, you can get it, if you really want it.
Know Your Target
The first step in getting that internship with your dream employer is knowing, whom you want to work with, as early as possible. You should narrow down your list by the time October or November comes. If you will be having your internship during spring or fall, then try to adjust accordingly.
Next, you should know yourself the reason why you want to work for that certain employer. State out reasons why you think they are the top among the other companies that you can have your internship with. For instance, you are a journalism major who really admires the content and writing style of your hometown newspaper.
Make sure that it is clear with you the reasons why the company is so successful that you admire them to that...
