This is a huge area these days. Students who are fortunate enough to have internships during college can test out work life, make important contacts for their days after college, get stellar references for graduate and summer work, and can test out some of theory of class with practical applications. Students should regularly check in at the offices of their major. Most colleges post internship opportunities on boards. They should get to know professors who will have great suggestions and know what internships have worked well for students in the past. Once a student has an internship, it's time to soar! Be enthusiastic but not pushy. Take on all sorts of tasks, even those with which you may not be comfortable. Volunteer when it's least expected. Help the organization out by using your skills for their benefit. Internships aren't about money. They're about experience.
