    Hi,

    This might seem like a stupid question but idk how to find internships near me xD. Asked my careers advisor at uni but she just gave me the link to a website! When i went on that all the application dates had passed. Yet when i went on company specific websites (smaller firms) I found internships still available (not advertised on that site)??

    As a science student wanting to go into finance i wouldnt mind going for an insight day rather than an internship but i struggled to find these too. I did see one offered by KPMG but the application process seemed too time consuming for just a few days experience

    Help please?

    Vast majority of desirable internships open in August/September and close in early winter (Dec/Jan). The only ones really available now will be sporadic internships at startups or smaller to medium sized firms. Very small/local firms you'd probably be better off applying to speculatively (preferably after a bit of networking).

    As others have said, do a search for internships across the major jobsites and as I said before send some speculative applications out/get on the phone/get coffees/send out emails (aka network).

    For startups, try workinstartups (they have fast response if your background match what they are looking for) or instantimpact

    Now the only thing i am concerned about it is location.

    Essentially i could do it anywhere in England if accommodation is provided. Otherwise id need to find a local company :/

    For the majority internships, you will be paid a reasonable salary enough to rent a place for the summer.
