It's still only March, if you struck out with traditional internship classes I would start networking like a madman with local options.

I wouldn't rule it out yet. What are you looking to do? PM me.

Could you elaborate a bit more about local options? I'm not exactly in the same situation as OP, Grade 12 student seeing if I can get a leg up this summer in preparation for career.

Think long and hard about what skills you lack and what will actually help you move forward. Maybe it's not professional experience but instead sports/social/volunteering.

You have all of college and your career to gain respect professionally. You're at the age where there is no pressure to do so. Before you commit one of your few summers in HS to your career, consider the alternatives. I'd rather hire someone who started and is passionate about a charity than someone who did a mediocre internship in HS.

That being said, if you can afford it maybe look at college programs at different unis. I know a lot of the Ivy's do programs like this.

If you're dead set on an internship, PM me and I'll give you some advice.

Thanks for the advice. I'll give it some thought and see if there's anything else that I'd be more passionate about doing, as this probably is the last "free summer" I'll have. With regards to the summer programs at universities, I was under the impression they weren't particularly useful outside of demonstrated interest for admissions, while costing an arm and a leg. Is there really even a point as a senior? Additionally, I'm a Canadian so it becomes doubly costly.
