Getting an internship can be a great way to break in to the working world and earn some extra cash, along with some valuable experience.  With tens of thousands of paid internship opportunities available, it shouldn’t be hard to find a paid internship that fits your needs. We've put together a list of websites that should help to get you started in your search for paid internships abroad (and at home).

According to their website, MonsterTRAK is the most-visited college-targeted site on the Internet, which means they certainly know what they are doing.  They operate sites in 23 countries and work with more than 600,000 employers – so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a job or a paid internship, no matter where, or what, you’re looking to do. Their international internship listings are limited, but their website is very comprehensive and easy to use.  In addition to their listings, MonsterTRAK offers checklists, tips and guides to help you get started and get hired.

Vault is an online searchable database of information on over 5,000 companies and 70 industries offering jobs and internships at all levels in North America, Europe, and Asia and the Pacific.  Fortune recently called Vault "The best place on the Web to prepare for a job search." Vault can get you ready for a potential career or internship with information in what to put on your resume and questions to expect in interviews. They also offer information in education programs including universities, law schools, and MBA programs. Vault does require a membership for much of their information, which can cost up to $15.00/month for job seekers.
