I"m not sure if this is a new post or not ... because of the testing and automated replacement thread system tech support has been working on (it might be a very old post).
this is the new internships thread
and this is where we will carry on the discussion. ... so I'll anwer your question, just in case.
"Any companies" is extremely broad deffinition. But you can check these threads first.
Review this thread, to see if anyone has posted anything in your city, if not you may post a request, but first you must name the company and department you are interested in (human resources or employment/hiring is most likely the departments that also handle internship programs in large companies):
I need Contact Info for Publicists / Designers / Showrooms / Magazines / Stores / etc
Review this thread ... members post want ads for internships that they find eslewhere:
'Help Wanted' - Post Unpaid Internships & Other Unpaid Opps (no comments, please!)
Then you really have to do the research yourself. For example, if you want to intern in an fashion magazine, you must research to find out if there are any fashion magazines headquartered in your city. If so, check their corporate web site to see if they advertise an internship program. If, if you can't find any, then call their human resources/employment/hiring department and just ask if the offer internships. Ask who to speak to about this ... and ask for information regarding applications and requirements to apply.
You might also consider any desginers or clothing manufacturers in your city. Maybe Fashion showrooms ... if you have a fashion district ... that's where they sell wholesale to boutique owners. And what about retail shops? If they are small and locally owned, you would just have to approach the owner and ask if they would consider you for a work experience internship.
