960x0 - What University College Students Can Get from Internship


University college students are required to go through an internship before being able to get their diplomas. They think that it’s just an added burden considering they are already going through so much. What they don’t realize is that the school system is actually doing them a favour. It can help them make their life after college easier to survive. By going through internship, they’d be able to get a job easily since it can give them an edge over others. It is because, employers tend to hire them thinking they would require less training compared to others, and will be able to handle harder responsibilities. But, aside from that, there are still so much benefits one can get from it, and here are some of them:

A video that shows how to nail the internship interview:

One will probably go into their internship knowing nothing about public relations and leave feeling like one must know everything. An internship can give them a well-rounded hands-on education that one wouldn’t receive otherwise. Maybe they don’t think too much about the future when they are in college. After serving an internship, one should be much more focused and motivated, as though someone gave them a crystal ball so they are now able to look directly into their future. An internship can show them what their life could be like after college, and that can be pretty inspiring.

Another benefit one could get is being able to earn money even just an intern. Interns are not official employees of the company but some companies tend to pay them. They could use this to help pay for their tuition and allowances. How cool is it that even as a person who hasn’t graduated yet, will be able to help their parents financially?


So those are just some of the benefits one could get from internships. It can help them have a better life and could get job easier after college. Now, what they need to focus on is passing the interview and getting a spot on their dream company to intern to. Just like applying for a job, an intern can also get rejected.

So, to help them out from avoiding such, here we have some tips they could use.

One must be aware of the dress code. There are companies who do not require a uniform for their employees, yet they still have dress code that must be followed. Interns, even if they are not officially an employee, must follow these dress codes. Even if he/she is temporary, they should still learn these dress codes to show respect to the company.

Impressions last, everyone knows that. A college student must give good impression to his/her employer, and to their workmates. He/she should be able to get along with his/her workmate to prevent any hassle and stress. He/she must be enthusiastic and interactive especially on the first day, since it’s basically is the time where your supervisors would really observe you. I remember way back my time of internship where I hardly talk to anyone because of my shyness, I ended up having low marks. Therefore, college students must overcome their fear. It is important to get high ratings in this part.
