What are some ways to find a Paid Internship?

Securing and working an internship is an excellent resume builder that also reinforces your appeal towards potential employment. But did you know that while all types of internships can have value, NACE research has found that students with paid internships had more job offers, higher starting salaries, and a shorter job search, after graduation?
