Research the Industry of Your Preferred Internship

An application for a college internship should start with researching the industry. The state of the economy may influence how many opportunities you find in a particular field. The hotel and resort industry is a current example: with fewer tourists, even the big hotel chains may cut back on their number of paid internsihps. Start your research early so that you can plan your applications.

(Habbo Hotel is a virtual world that is populated by teenagers worldwide.)
