I am a PhD student in Electrical and Computer Engineering with Master is Math from Georgia Tech and I wanted to apply for internship in Quantitative Risk/Risk Management. Can anybody help here? Any site recommendations or contacts?
How important is getting an intern for a final job.
You might also want to try your school career center. I know that the company I work for mostly does its intern recruiting this way. I'm actually sitting next to a PhD in Operation Research intern and this week is his last. So as Yan He said, you're a bit late in the game.
I got my two interns (Spring/Summer) though school career service. I don't think recruiters will help in internship, you can always try.
Company website works for me. I saw the opening in April, applied on the website, got phone calls from HR, then interview, interview, interview, ...., then final offer in late May. Recruiters did land me lots of interviews too.
While looking for an internship I talked to a dozen of recruiters (my friend recommended them), and everybody said that I should contact them several month before graduation. I would suggest to use all opportunities and to apply for some positions on-line does not hurt at all. A lot of my groupmates got an interview applying on-line.
