Ladies and gentlemen, start your internship search now for summer 2014. The linked articles above indicate clearly that if you wait until (say) March 2014 to start thinking about what you'll do next summer, you will be way far behind the curve, settling for the picked-over internships that nobody else wanted.
Internships can give you a leg up when you start searching for paid, fulltime, permanent work. Internships seem to be turning into a serious "make or break" item to list on your resume. Even if you don't get a job offer from the place where you do your internship, it's still a major gold star on your resume for another company, because it shows you have initiative, training, and moxie.
You can do a simple internet search using the string "internship summer 2014" to start turning over the rocks and seeing what's underneath. Drill down below the surface by adding buzz-words from the career or field of your choice.
