Top 10 Benefits of Internship for College students
Hello friends, today we are going to discuss top 10 benefits of internship. Do share this video with college students so as they will get more benefit out of it. Do comment to this video, for any questions or to get more clarification on any of topic which I am discussing. So, what is internship? Internship is an official program designed by employer for the potential employee. You must have heard about apprenticeship. An apprenticeship and an internship both are different terms. In apprenticeship, student or apprentice is bound to the same job and not allowed to leave that job after apprenticeship. But in terms of internship, it is like you are going to try some career option and if you are ok, you can continue or you can leave that particular company after internship. Apprentices know which field they want to do master in career. So, they do follow their master and that is their career path. But in internship, you are not bound to same career path. So, you must have heard about Paid and Unpaid internship. For me each internship is paid internship. Because it is not only money which you want from any internship, but it is like you are getting knowledge, you are getting hands on experience – so few employer prefer like they don’t pay offered salary to you during internship, but they do offer knowledge or the space to work and learn. Whereas, few employers they do provide some kind of salary. And that is known as paid internship. For me, it is your choice you can choose either a paid or unpaid internship. Lets begin with top 10 benefits which you can get out of internship. Benefit number 1. As an intern, you get live job experience or hands-on-experience of particular skill or domain. So, it is very important to learn how team works, how project life cycle and delivery cycle works. It is a learning curve for you. Benefit number 2. Internship helps you to understand what career path you want to choose. For example, if you are doing internship in an IT company – you can select between software development path or software testing path depending on the inclination during internship. So, it gives you some kind of brief idea about particular area. Benefit number 3. Internship gives you a job edge into market. So as, you have some kind of experience on your resume when you go for any job hunt or you are facing any interview. It gives you some opportunity to show your talent in terms of internship during interviews. Benefit number 4. Internship provides you sharpening tool for your skills. For example, if you want to do your career as a web designer, so you may work as a intern for HTML and front end designing. It will help you sharpen your skills. Benefit number 5. It is in terms of financial aspects. You are earning some kind of money out of internship period (if its paid internship). Benefit number 6. Professional surrounding and networking with different teams while you are an intern will help you to grow from student life to professional life. I guess this is more important. Benefit number 7. Internship will make you more matured because of your regular communication with customer and team. So, your business communication skill or corporate communication skill will grow during internship. Benefit number 8. Once you start working with any assignment or task during internship, it will definitely going to boost your confidence. That confidence is much more important. Benefit number 9. As an intern, there are good chances like you will get permanent employment in the same company after your internship or your graduation. So, it is more important that you keep good attitude towards your internship period so as you will get permanent job opportunity over there. I have seen many started their internship in some company and they are working there since long time. I have seen a case where a telecom company was having an intern, and that person (intern) later on got many promotions also as an employee and he is getting retired in couple of years from same company. So, internship can offer you long term opportunity as well. Benefit number 10. Internship gives you opportunity to test your qualities and skills during job period in any company. So, internship is more important to know your abilities. Remember, if you are going for any internship be sincere – don’t take it lightly. Because employers also investing in lot during your internship. Like, sitting space, licensed software or even time of their team to groom you. So, it is always important that you should take it as a positive experience and show a good attitude towards internship. It should be a very positive long lasting experience for an employer as well as an intern. Do proper research before applying an internship to any company. You can find few job portals or LinkedIn or even college campus which will be helpful for you to find proper internship.
