Hey guys, welcome to another blog post. Today I’m going to explain to you about types of internship and how can you select one that is best fit for you?
As you already read my previous posts in which I explained about an internship but a summary is here before I go-to types.
What is an internship?
An internship is a stage of work exposure offered by an organization. It is an opportunity offered by an employer to people called interns, to work at the company for a fixed period.
What are the Benefits of Doing an Internship?
An internship is a hands-on approach to study new skills at a company or industry rather than in a classroom. The internship is a great opportunity for graduates and postgraduates students who have just passed out and are unable to find a job because of industry demand work experience. Besides that, it is also recommended for high school students, recent high school graduates, college pursuing students, and even adults looking to explore a career transition.
An internship should give you practical skills, workplace experience and more comprehensive knowledge of that industry, in exchange for the employer benefiting from your labor.
- Experience of working conditions on live projects of the company
- Soft Skills Development
- Personality Development
After an internship, you can get placement in the same company or in other companies based upon work experience you gained during the internship because now you are no more a fresher
How to get the full benefit of Internship
In any internship learning is the key.
As an intern, originally, you’ll have further to learn than to offer.
Take this opportunity to observe and learn as much as possible.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions
Always be adaptable
Real knowledge of the easiest of job offers for a great leader in the eventuality. With time, you will start taking more engagement and be a lot more interested.
It’s great to be proactive and take lead.
Different types of internships are;
- Unpaid Internship
- Paid Internship
- Summer Internship
Skills that can be utilized. Already acquired. Lawyer – laws. Training very less or no. in India people myth – find a company, 6 months continue training every day, will take some work and end and will pay.
Experience according to the career goal
PAID INTERNSHIP VS UNPAID INTERNSHIP
A company can offer a paid internship if the intern already has soft skills as well as technical skills to do work from day one but not have any job experience. These skills maybe you got from your education or some professional training. In this type of internship, the company may hire you to check your skills.
Internship stipend may be quiet less than the regular salary of employees but it does not count in the internship period as it is much better to get work experience rather than waiting for some company that hires you directly.
If you don’t have technical skills or professional training in the field in which you are seeking a job, but you have some very good soft skills and wanted to join the corporate world. The company will offer you an unpaid internship in which the company will invest in you and can give you complete training So, you can go with an unpaid internship which benefits you to get professional knowledge and experience from the company.
Whether it is paid or unpaid, it does not matter guys. What matters is whether you are getting work experience that is in alignment with your career goal or not.
The company hires you for a paid internship and they give you training regularly but gives you work that is not related to your career goal by any means. Leave that internship immediately
The internship goal is not money but good work experience to fetch higher jobs.
Summer Internships- Many interns go for internships programmed during their summer break; such kind of internship often referred to as summer internship. It normally lasts for one and a half or two months.
During my training, I realized that the Company had selected me for the Internship. I was so surprised knowing about my determination as an intern. I informed my family and friends. There is nothing wrong with disclosing that you are an intern. The company offered me an unpaid internship. There is nothing to be ashamed of, but as for me, it was more helpful to know what you do or how you can help others.
Now, guys, you must think about your internship and ask me a question in the comments below. Have a good career ahead.
