A former intern of mine from Ohio University sent me an email a few months back. Andrea explained that her school was on the quarter system and she had an extended break from December into January. Andrea asked if it would be possible for her to do a winter internship at a company in New York then.

I work with hundreds of companies around the U.S. and help them coordinate interns. However, we normally stick to fall, spring, and summer opportunities -- the most common among students. In this situation, I was willing to ask a few employers their thoughts on winter internships and I found several of them willing to take students during this time period.
