How to Land an Internship?

    Hi,

    I'm student pursuing an AAS degree in Electronics. Having already
    passed the halfway mark on the road to graduation, I'd like very much
    to land an internship with a local company to learn more
    real-world/applied electronics rather than text and lab book
    materials. In addition, I feel real-world experience, albeit as an
    intern, would better position myself for employment once I do
    graduate.

    My question is this: how does one go about landing an internship? Many
    large electronics company websites mention internships but these
    appear primarliy directed at BSEEs, not lowly AAS'.

    A paid internship would be ideal (some money is better than none), but
    not necessarily required if I feel that I'm learning enough in return
    for my investment.

    I've already completed one quarter-long internship with a small
    company, which arranged through my school's program. That ended and
    now, with nothing similar on the horizon, I'd like to maybe try
    something on my own now.

    Would a good coarse of action be to somply cold-call the listed number
    and ask for the engineering department in the hopes of landing someone
    whi supervises technicians? Perhaps an email along the same lines?

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks.
