An internship is a job opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, called interns, to work at a firm for a fixed, limited period of time. Internships are very important to both the students and the employers.
For students Internships cover these 5 important aspects:
Real world experienceJoining a company as an intern gives you the opportunity to work hands on in a professional environment. As an intern you're not just there to get coffee or run errands but you're there to gain actual work experience. Internships help by teaching you more about the career path you are pursuing. Think of it like this – internships are a way to test drive possible jobs and explore different career options.
NetworkingInternships often give you the opportunity to attend meetings and events. By interacting with professionals you gain new connections and learn how to communicate in a professional environment. Personally, our internships have introduced us to a lot of useful resources and have given us the opportunity to meet a variety of professionals in our respectivr fields. Networking has helped us acquire references and find new job opportunities. Internships can even provide you with a professional mentor.
Resume BuilderAs a college student we know the importance of a strong resume. Without a solid resume it can be tougher to be considered for a position. And how can you have a strong resume without any experience? Internships are key to building experience as a student or recent graduate. Employers are much more likely to hire someone with internships and work experience rather than someone with a generic resume, lacking experience.
Time ManagementAs an intern you'll become a master of time management. When you're working in a fast paced professional environment you need to know every minute counts. Time management is vital in every circumstance whether you're attending meetings, finishing tasks on deadlines, making phone calls, picking up your boss' dry cleaning or walking their dog (just kidding about those last two).
Career FoundationInternships provide you with the building blocks you need for your future. Many internship opportunities help set the foundation for your career. It is important that you choose you internships based on your interests and career prospects. As an intern you have the opportunity to get your foot in the door with a company. Keep in mind, employers often use internships as a recruitment tool to test out future employees and in many cases, companies hire interns after graduation.
Our Mission is to bridge the gap between students all over the world, who are seeking internship opportunities, and companies, who require young talent to work in the organisation, by providing a platform for the companies to post internship requirements and for students to apply in the same.
What we Believe in
As a student run organisation we believe that it is very important for a student to gain a Real World experience at a Graduate level. Increasing competition and ever changing environment has made it really necessary for students to be competent in more contemporary skillset (Time management, Multitasking, communication and soft skills) in addition to technical knowledge that they have gained in their course of choice.
These future leaders need guidance to fully explore their potential and we believe that gaining experience in working in an organisation is the best exposure for student who want to develop the above mentioned skills. The aim is hence to provide a plethora or equal opportunities to our student partners throughout the world.
