1. SUMMER INTERNSHIP
An internship is a temporary, hands-on work experience in an organization or company for which students earn academic credits.

It will acquaint you with the demands of professional world of work in terms of knowledge, skills and attitude to perform effectively.

Why an Internship?
• To many of you, the world of work is still a strange place, for you may not have ever employed in a formal way. The internship gives you an opportunity of ‘reality check’ and on the basis of internship experience, take decisions about yourself and your career plans.
• “Test drive” the path you are choosing and confirm your interest - An internship is a good way to check out your interest in a possible career field. Not only will you have the opportunity to build your knowledge base and test your skills by doing your job, but you will have the opportunity to be exposed to the work of others within the organization and find out about additional job possibilities.
• Be able to relate concepts and theories with practice.
• Grow personally - The value of an internship often extends beyond career exploration; a good experience can have a significant impact on your personal growth by developing your intellectual, interpersonal, and leadership qualities.
• Get experience and skills and enhance your resume with career-related experience - Employers’ number one criteria when interviewing potential candidates for employment is related work experience.
• Gain valuable contacts and references - Networking is an essential part of the job search process and who better to ask for a reference or contact than someone who knows your work style and habits.
