When I was in college, before I went into nursing, I was a pre-med and psychology major. I had two internships, one unpaid and one paid. This was years ago, though, and they were not hard to come by. (There was less legal and liability crap back then, and even hospitals weren't too worried and gave out internships regularly. My unpaid internship was at the children's ward of a huge mental health facility. It actually made me rethink my desire to maybe go into child psychology or Pediatric Neurology.
It was a pretty grim set up.)
My daughter, who is in Grad School now, has been looking for an internship in Library Work and has been having a hard time finding one. Due to the inflated price of college, she needs
a job, to pay for her necessities, her school loans etc. Her loan schedule is brutal!
We aren't asking for rent right now, due to the economy even when living at home with us, but she also needs library experience to eventually get a job in Library Science when she earns her MS in Library Science in about a year. My daughter is hoping she'll get more help from the Grad School she is attending (the large, but affordable state college she attended was worthless in helping students find internships.) She also knows she needs to use resources to look on her own.
I really hope both you and she find one soon.
