Prepare for your future through international internships

Posted by Edu4sure team

The last few blogs we have been discussing studying abroad. Discussing and debating over Why do we need to go abroad and study? About the cost involved and the education loan, Repayment and the transformation of life and a hell lot of stuff. We have come to terms with the fact that students do wish to go abroad to study and parents send them more than happily. They hope for a bright future and better professional career.

They are not wrong in their thought process. Education abroad is far much better in terms of knowledge and exposure. It provides opportunities for career growth and advancement. It takes you to new heights. In order to study abroad, here are few things you might do one after the other.

Before going abroad:

♦ Decide whether you actually want to take this step or not and be sure and firm about going abroad and also consider the challenges that you will face.

Internship just like footprints in the sand, Each step signifies the journey taken

♦ Decide on the destination you want to go. Abroad is a wide concept and you need to choose a particular place you want to visit. Is it US, France, Canada or any other place.

♦ Decide on the course you want to study in this country. Technical, medical, management according to your caliber and interest

♦ Gather the information about the course and the finances involved in it during the tenure of the course

♦ Now you are ready for takeoff. See you there

During Study Abroad:

Get familiar with their language first if they speak in any other language than English like Japanese, French. Adapt to their culture, surroundings, a way of living. Once you get comfortable with life. Start researching about the course you have taken up. Read about it. Now you have friends, take their help. Understand and give time to your studies. Studies abroad are different from India.

After the study: 

♦ Finish your studies what next? Is the question everyone asks. Do you plan to stay there or move back to your native place? In both cases, you need to plan your next move. If you want to stay there. Look for internships and then a job. Make progression in your career. For career progression, international internships are the best.

♦ International internships are important for your personal and career growth. They add to your resume and highlight your work experience. International internships teach you a lot more than you expect. They give you tremendous exposure in the real world. They make you fit for a job. There may be times when you will feel frustrated because you have to shed extra sweat and work really hard but it is worth. The more you work the better you become.  You will nail the interview only because of the internships. I have grown so much in a career is the line said by many. It is because they have taken international internship programs to learn and reach to the height where they are and where everyone wants to be.

♦ International internships can be fun at the same time. You meet new people and make friends. You get to learn a lot from people and they become the part of your life. You could relate to them as they are in the same boat as you. Friends keep you away from boredom and make work a fun activity.

♦ International Internships are a good source of networking. You make connections during internship/ training period that live long with you. Try to make connections they help you in getting a job. Although your talent, skill, knowledge matters but connections are what will take you to another level. Getting jobs become easy if you have connections.

International Internships are an unrivaled way to explore the professional world. They make you understand the workplace culture of the host country.  They diversify your working experience and gain a competitive edge over the others.  Try to do internships during or after your study. At least try for one internship. More the number better you are. If you directly jump to a job you will not learn anything new and will remain stagnant. Possibilities are you may not get a good job even but you may get one that suits your personality after doing an internship. Internship reveals your positive side to you and your hidden talent is revealed and refine. It talks about your academic achievement and makes you aware in this globalized world.
