From Classroom to Workplace: Embracing Student Internship Opportunities

Student Internship

What is an Internship?

Internships are short-term opportunities to gain entry-level work experience. The interns frequently work alongside a team inside a company, learning from experienced professionals about the background work. The interns get to know the foundation or the whole work implementation, which a person can’t see as an employee.

Internships, often filled by college students, recent graduates, or sometimes 12th-class students, offer a unique chance to gain experience in a new field before stepping into full-time employment. Companies provide a platform to learn from experienced professionals and contribute to real-world projects, which can significantly enhance your professional growth and marketability.

What is the duration of an Internship?

The duration of an Internship may vary from company to company. In most scenarios, an average Internship lasts about six to 12 weeks. In some cases, an Internship can last only a week or two. In an Internship the experience and skills which a person gains is more important than the duration of the internship.

What kind of work is done during internships? 

Student Internship

During the Internship, the Intern will assist the team by doing research, making PowerPoint presentations and drafts, identifying trends, etc. (these are the basics of the job).

While assisting the team, the interns learn about the job. They get answers to questions like: What is this? How is it done? Why is it necessary to do so? Can it be done in some other way? How can the work be made accessible? The intern answers these questions while interning in the company.

Do Interns get paid or not? If so, then how much?

In India, Internships can be paid or unpaid, depending on the work, field, and company. While some Internships offer a monthly stipend ranging from 3,000 to 15,000 rupees, others may not provide any financial compensation. However, regardless of the pay, Internships often come with a certificate acknowledging your participation and outlining the tasks you completed, which can be a valuable addition to your professional portfolio.
