Is It Too Early For Summer 2011 Internships in NYC?

ASK THE INTERN QUEEN

Q: Dear Lauren,
Do you think that it is too early to start applying for internships in NYC
for this upcoming summer (2011) now? I really want to find a good internship
and I didn't know if it was too early to start yet.
Also, when are you getting New Orleans internships up here!

Rachel, Student at Tulane

A: Hi Rachel!

I do not think it's too early to apply for internships in New York City. This is a great time to check out all of the summer 2011 deadlines for the employers you are interested in. I would go ahead and send in your materials, but be sure to follow up right after the New Year to make sure that everything is still being processed. Many internships won't have deadlines until closer to March 2011. However, since you want to intern out-of-state, it's always a good idea to do this sort of thing in advance. We will have to look into New Orleans internships for you :) Let us know if you want to be a Tulane Intern Queen Campus Ambassador!
