I need help

I am beginning to sink my teeth into the wonderful world of applying for internships, and I have no idea where to begin. I know the whole "make yourself look great on a resume" routine, but what is necessary to send to set yourself apart from other applicants? I feel like I am in high school again applying for scholarships, only this time the stakes are a little bit higher, so I feel more pressure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would begin by seeing Dr. Sidel in the coliseum. He greatly helped me in finding an internship last spring. I interned for WIS, Columbia, and never had to submit a resume. And I've decided not to worry too much about letters of reference unless one is specifically required--b/c who in the hell can't get a stellar ref? But, that's just matter of opinion. I would definitely, however, start out with Sidel.
P.S. a decent site for jour internships: journalismjobs.com
