This past fall semester, I transferred to a new university and changed my major. Now, in my search for a summer internship, I've run into a major roadblock: my work experience, paid, unpaid, and volunteer positions included, includes nothing directly related to planning, though, of course, what I've extracted from these positions has led me to my current interests.
Also, my university's system is extremely alternative, requiring the each student's concentration be self-designed (which is why I chose to transfer here), which seems like it may be detrimental in searching for internships and jobs. My concentration combines urban planning, architecture, community development, and environmental concerns- sustainable urban design, in short, but truly, it's much more than that. My concern is that this may be perceived as a lack of focus, or a lack of direction.
What options are there for undergraduates with so little experience? Should I apply for summer internships despite the lack of experience?
All and any advice and recommendations would be appreciated, thank you in advance!
