Summer Internship is very much required to every management and engineering students before he put himself in a regular job. Summer internship is generally two to three month training where the trainee gets real experience of the corporate world. For management students it happens once they have completed one year of the course and left with the same duration so after summer internship he can relate the things during their study in a more practical manner.

So it has lot of value in terms of experience and exposure it gives to the trainee.

For one, it allows you to test what you have learned during your first year as a B-school student, it also gives you some insight as to what you should be focused on during your second year as a student, it informs you about your individual strengths that are in need of development. The summer internship also teaches you about the work ethic needed to be a part of an organization.

Apart from teaching you about skills needed for the job and work ethic, it also gives you an opportunity to do research on the organization you're working for, and the industry as a whole. You get a chance to apply the knowledge you acquired in the B-school, to develop a new perspective on the organization and the industry, to better understand how the market functions.

I'm currently doing my internship at Amul for a sales profile, and honestly I have learned more than what I learned in 1st year at B school. In this real and practical experience you get on the field, rather than sitting in a classroom you are actually on a field, observing how market works, analyzing what consumers want and learning the neat tricks of supply and demand. And I m pretty sure this will have a long term benefit for my career and will help secure a good job in the final placements. All and all it has made a fresher like me ready to face the corporate world.

Summer Internship: What’s the Value..??

Summer internship is really worth for everyone. Summer intern will help to know what corporate life is, and we can understand what student life is and what work (Corporate) life is. In this intern we can gain practical knowledge. In this intern we come to know how to handle different situations in polite way. This intern helps a lot to implement our theoretical knowledge in practical situation. I will explain best example for this, in college we learn what marketing is and what sale is, we will learn how to manage different things and how to convince people. We can implement those things in work life also, like sales, when we call to someone regarding our product, they won’t listen to us, and then we should apply our tactics which we learned in college. Those will helps to convince people by that we can term them as our customers. So it’s really worth to everyone.

Summer internship is basically where you apply your skills practically and see to it how your skills help in growing the organisation in which you are working. You are a fresher, mistakes ought to take place. But, through mistakes you learn what is to be done at what place and why??Summer internship provides you the practical exposure of the corporate world. Summer internship is of a short duration, and in this time you learn the basic Do's and Don'ts of the corporate world and also of the functional electives you choose to work upon like marketing, human resource, finance etc. However, the sad part is the number of companies providing internship is declining these days because of the market scenario. In future, we hope that there is no death of summer internships. Young generation of India is very talented and bright youth. Many of their ideas have helped many companies to grow and diversify.

Summer Internship is the key to adding experience to your resume.. also they can help you to start career in a number of ways. This is a gateway to gain skills & knowledge in a specific industry or field. Many companies look to their own interns as the best candidates for full-time positions. A summer internship will not guarantee a full time position but if you performed well.. there is a chance the company will extend you a job offer.

Being an intern.. it exposes you to better professional connections in & outside the company. Don’t make connections only because they can help you for getting a job but look for contacts that can act as mentors throughout your career. :) :)

Summer Internship : Whats the Value..??

An internship is usually part-time and last for the length of an academic term or semester. There are other internships which may be half time, or full time. Some pay a stipend to help with travel costs and housing. Both paid or unpaid internships can provide one with excellent opportunities to gain career-related work experience.
What's the best-case scenario :?: If you work hard enough and impress the company, there's a chance they might offer you a full-time position. Even if you decline and eventually decide to find work elsewhere, getting an offer out of an internship will look great on a resume.
If you don't get an offer, that's OK, too. The company may not have a position available, or maybe you just wouldn't want to work there. An internship provides you with two great tools. First, you gain excellent real world experience and a great resume builder. Second, you get an inside look into a field of work you're interested in, helping you make that career path a little less sketchy. The least an internship will do is get you thinking about what you want to do for a living.

:idea: Some basic values of an internship include:
- Gaining experience by applying your knowledge and skills in work related situations. You'll learn what you can do and what you need to work on in your studies. - - You'll gain confidence in your own abilities.
- Gaining the practical real work experience that employers like to see on a job candidate's resume.
- Clarifying your career goals with professionals helps you make a decision if the field is for you or not.
- Establishing a network of contacts, mentors, and references that will be of value for future letters and support.

Today's job market is very competitive. Individuals who have completed one or more internships during there academic study are more likely to fit-in to the world of work. They know something of the media business and have knowledge of employer expectations. Being able to list work experience on a resume helps one get their foot in the door when applying for a job position in the future. 8-) 8-)
A final thought. If you graduate and are unable to find employment within a few months, you might think about undertaking another internship.
Many companies offer internship opportunities that are not related to college or university study. These are often provide a unique avenue for being in an environment in which you would like to work and if you demonstrate your skills and abilities you become someone of interest with a position opens. These often pay enough to cover basics while you learn new skills.

Internships provide opportunities to experiment and pursue careers that match academic and personal interests. There are many benefits to completing an internship including the development of strong teamwork skills balanced with the exercise of individual responsibility, the opportunity to experiment with jobs that match academic and personal interests, the chance to develop industry-specific abilities while enjoying the advantages of a liberal arts education. Internships also increase the likelihood of building professional networking contacts and mentoring relationships. Internships help students become viable, experienced job applicants when seeking employment after graduation. In fact, many employers consider internship experience in the hiring process, and often look to their own interns as the best potential candidates for full-time positions.
