I'm a fourth semester, second year masters student at UIC in Chicago. In order to graduate I need to complete a 300 hour internship. So far I haven't found anything. I thought I'd do my internship last summer but never found anything. My advisor suggested calling around to various municipalities and asking about internships. I've called eight thus far and have received three "nos" and five unanswered messages. Any advice? I didn't want to ask outright for an unpaid internship if in fact their would be a possibility of pay.
