As a college student pursuing graduation or post-graduation, you must have heard about internships. An internship is a time during which you get exposure to an organization and an experience of a particular type of work. It is considered a short-term work experience for candidates who go on to pursue a career among many potential employers. Ideally, interns spend their time working on relevant projects, learning about the field, making industry connections, and developing both hard and soft skills.
As an intern, you get a chance to work side by side with accomplished industry professionals and get a pretty good idea of what an entry-level role might entail. You’ll not only gain real work experience but also meet and learn from the professionals. And you’ll start to build your own network of your fellow interns to seasoned leaders.
An internship is also often referred to as a golden period, as the takeaways from it are many. It gives you a chance to try a few things and offers in-depth information that helps in navigating your career path. Internships sometimes even lead to job offers depending on the situations and needs of the organization. Some are paid and some are not. Companies also use internships to pipe into their pool of talent and explore them to fill their own open positions. Internships work out to companies’ advantage as they help employers discover more about the candidate over an extended period.
Begin Your Ascent
‘Begin your Ascent’ at AscentHR is a structured 8-week program that helps the candidate have exposure to the corporate world. The program covers:
Domain: Areas such as Payroll processing, Compliance management, Sales & Marketing, Material Management in Logistics, Service Delivery, HR & Staffing practices.
Projects: You will start working with real-time data. At one glimpse, you understand how client relationships depend on day-to-day efficiency and the meticulous level of detail involved.
Mentorship: You meet with the chain of command concerned with your job description and understand the purpose of the entire division. The nitty-gritty of daily operations is explained by your Mentors and guides so you can relate with your university learning and how they fulfill organizational goals.
Training: On-the-job-training in a workplace is different from your learning heretofore in that you “learn by doing” here. Your actions and decisions have immediate, lasting real-world consequences. The how and what of each step that you take as a representative of an organization becomes clear at this internship.
