Internships……Should You Be Serious on it?

Internship, projects….ugh…..the sound of those words causes all students to flinch. But unfortunately, there’s just no way around it. You can’t graduate from college without completing these. Now let’s be honest. How many of us have actually seriously done the internships or projects? Go out in the name of internship and just get a namesake certificate, show off that awesome project that we didn’t put any effort into and just bought it for a price. That’s what we all do right? But now, that kind of smartness just isn’t going to cut it anymore.

Up until a few years ago you could land a job by just having a degree certificate in hand. That isn’t the case anymore. Now, most HRs take a look at your project, internship etc. Once they’ve reviewed those, it’s pretty easy for them- pick the best performer. In fact, internships are now considered as a selection tool to hunt the top talents by companies like TCS, EMC etc. The company reviews the candidate performance during their tenure in the company and the good performers will be hired.

Training Institutes are a BIG NO NO!!! If you want to do an internship, you have to do it in a certified company, preferably a big company, like TCS, Wipro, BEL etc. If you want to know about the internship opportunities, all you need to do is….no not contact us….you need to contact your seniors who might be working in these companies. Don’t have their phone numbers? Reach out to them through social media like Facebook, Twitter etc. Also, just to put it on the table, there are websites out there that solely list the available internship opportunities around.

An internship is like a career ladder which can give you and your resume more value. Why wait until campus placements to understand what a job feels like? Go out there, do an internship and you may have just gained valuable experience in helping you land that dream job.

So start now…..Search, Get connected and Do your Internship in the best organization.
