Need Tips on Finding an Internship
So, as much as I've enjoyed being a full time student for the last year, the time comes when a man discovers he needs money, that time is when his wife says "Get a Job"! So I'm starting to look for an Mech Eng internship and the internship office at UCF is proving less fruitful than I had anticipated. Of 18 engineering internships listed (and that list has only grown by two in the last 45 days), only 5 are "local" and of that 5, I meet the qualifications of 3.
Those 3 being
USA/NASA 68 miles away
Lockheed 43 miles away
Disney 47 miles away
Not that I'm asking for the world to meet my convenience, but the idea of working an internship 12-20 hours a week while commuting 9-12 hours a week, plus carrying a full time class load, thrills me not.
So the question becomes, quite simply.
How Do I Find An Internship?
Post my resume to Monster?
Spam my resume to every engineering firm in a 30 mile radius?
Help, any reasonable suggestions would be much appreciated.
I added that pic because I need your bright ideas.
