By Shatavisha Chakravorty

Most people will agree that it is only a small fragment of the learning that is required in the real world that happens in the classroom. It is only when people go to work do they get a chance to apply all that they have learnt in the classroom and in turn obtain the required skill set that is necessary for an individual to function to the best of their abilities. Now the one thing that forms a bridge between the classroom learning and the world outside is that of internships. These internships nurture the individual's skill set that was developed in the classroom and provide them with the necessary confidence to survive all the challenges of the corporate world.


In most places, internships are unpaid. In fact, there are places in India where one needs to pay in order to get an internship. However, there is no need for college-going students to lose all hope. There are indeed some places where there is ample scope for getting paid. Amongst these, we shall discuss the ones that pay their interns the highest.
