By Malavikka

Internship gives one of the most valuabe experiences in a course curriculum of a student. Making the best use of such opportunity could take them to unimaginable heights. On the other hand being lousy could make you blind to a golden chance.

After all, what is the point of undergoing an internship without exploring industry connection for your career? Remember that opportunity knocks the door only once. Here are some of the tricks and tips for you to follow when you attend an internship:

Be sincere

Some students are earnest while the others are playful. Your attitude during work however would be noted and be subjected to consideration at the end of your internship period. Students must bear in mind that internship is not an extension of college life filled with frolic and fun.

Dont be importunate

This is one thing that you must follow religiously. You know that being employed with the organisation is an honour and a prestige.
