Importance Of Internships

What is internship? Going by the technical definition,” An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training rather than merely employment, and it can be paid or unpaid.” In easy way, internships are an opportunity for you to get the feel of the real job that you will do or may be something you are interested in.

There was a time when people thought that internships are done by those who are not sure of the career path they must take. But in today’s time, internships have come up to be essential for some jobs. Usually, we rarely learn what we actually do in the real life during our life as a student. It might be that the curriculum is not well suited. For some other, getting a real feel of the work is what they get during internships. To the students who want to study abroad, and even to those who don’t, internships are something you must all go for. It might be paid or unpaid, the point is you will learn things you may not learn anywhere else.

What is in it for me?

1.You gain experience of working in a real work environment.

  • You learn time management.
  • Learn how to gel up with people during work.
  • Understand the work ethics.
  • You get to know what it feels to sit on a desk from 9 to 5.
  • You get a feel of the job that you will get in.
  • Learn to face challenges.
  • Internships boost your resume.
  • You increase your chances of getting the dream job.


I may go on with this list and it will still be less. When trying for internships, it is better that you first start with the institution you are studying. Chances are they may tell you more about other internships available. You may even land yourself in unpaid internships although there are paid internships as well. Often you may get paid less during the internship. Remember, you are in it for the experience, for the joy of learning. Money flows automatically later on.

So, all of those who are planning to study abroad, or otherwise, give your life your best shot. Do internships and add a cherry to your cake.
