Importance of summer training in professional course
Summer Training for engineering students is important because it is the time to obtain as much knowledge about their field. As an engineering student, training can help you to implement the concepts you learned at your classes. After learning concepts from professors, lecturers and also from books we feel like ‘we now know everything and we can now develop any type of program based on those concepts’ but the fact is that ‘Learning a concept’ and ‘Implementing a concept’ both are different things, both are tightly coupled but still there are differences. It is true that without learning a concept you can’t implement it, but just learning a concept doesn’t mean that you can correctly implement it.
Actual challenges appear when we have to develop real-world software. All the software/program based on the concepts you may had already learned during engineering course, but there are lot more things involved in developing a live application (That is to be used by some business organization) and those things can be learned only from a good software company’s productive environment and never taught at classes. Training helps you to learn those things that are available only at production environment and by working on a live project.
Training develops confidence in whatever you have learned. After completing training you will feel much confident about your field. If your concepts not clear or you have confusions with them, then at the time of interview, exams or in professional life you face many problems. All experienced people always like to hear accurate to the point solution to every problem, your carrier depends on your sharpness, intelligence and off-course your confidence. So as much as possible, clear your confusions and get new ideas of your fields with the help of summer training, project training and become confident and sincere about your future.

Student who is in II nd and III rd Year of their degree course right now they will spend a few years finishing college and a few years just learning the ropes at their firstjob.
The Value of Internships:
There are still many college students that don’t get hired immediately following graduation; while others facing a career transition may still be struggling to find themselves in a fulfilling, rewarding career. As a college student the best way to get the skills and accomplishments employers require is through internships, co and research experiences. It is through these experiences that will help you to build on your resume while learning the knowledge and skills that employers look for when hiring new employees for full-time employment.
Here we are discussing some points for student who are pursuing last year degree course
Is internship is suitable for you
Internships are a best way to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connections in the field. Internships are also a way to get your feet wet and find out if a specific field is something you could see yourself doing as a full-time job.
Internships may be completed during fall or spring semester or full time over the course of the summer. Unpaid internships may be easier to get but may also pose problems if making money is necessary, especially during the summer. The problem is there are many who cannot afford to work for nothing so that they are forced into doing menial jobs such as wait staff or bartending in order to work their way through college. This may preclude some from doing an internship which may really be a detriment when hoping to get a full-time job.
Always consider financial issue doing internship
Financial considerations when looking for an internship can make a big difference in the decision-making process. Sometimes students will do a part-time or full-time job to supplement the time that they are spending at their internship. Whether an internship is paid or unpaid there are many things that need to be taken into consideration in order to decide if an internship is worthwhile. It’s important to decide if an internship will ultimately be in the best interest of the student in order to help them meet the requirements they will need when applying for a full-time job.
Think where you get funding for internship
Some colleges also offer funded internships for students. So check with your college to see if they offer a funded internship program that may help to meet the requirements of your college curriculum while offering experiences that employers seek when hiring new college graduates for entry level jobs. In addition, many foundations and organizations offer financing to college students so they may try writing to a number of them to see if they provide funding for college students seeking to do internships in their field.
Doing an Internship really all that Important?
How important is it really to do an internship before applying for a job? Do you need to get the hands-on experience that is talked about when discussing the importance of internships or is it really a matter of just landing the right job?
Internship is beneficial for you………
I suggest that students may elect to do a summer internship a couple of days per week while working a part-time job for the remainder of the time. For those who need to maximize the amount of money they make over the course of the summer, they may look into doing an internship during the academic year when they are less likely to expect to make money to help defray their college expenses.
In addition to internships, volunteer opportunities can also be an excellent way to gain experience and exposure to the work force. Employers love to see volunteer experiences on a student’s resume. Volunteering shows commitment to causes and certain values that are intrinsic to the individual who have participated in these types of experiences. Employers look for employees who are publicly engaged and who take an interest in community service and in doing good work.
The Benefits of Doing an Internship
By doing a great job and completing more than what is required of you in your internship, you will be creating a great impression that can provide a great reference at the least and may even potentially lead to a potential job offer. When you leave the organization at the end of the internship, you should ask for a recommendation letter that you can keep on file for future reference.
What Employers Want?
Internships and volunteer experiences make candidates more competitive in the job market. In addition to gaining exposure and experience in the field, they also provide an opportunity to see if the particular career field is the right one based on getting personal experience in the field. No matter what opportunities you engage in, it’s important to maintain professionalism and take on the individual responsibility that is required.
Internships are a Learning Experience
Internships are a great way to learn the ropes so even if you find yourself filing. As long as you‘re learning about the field take advantage of the opportunity and don’t take the experience lightly.
What to do or not to do
In corporate world, employers look out for fresh talent so some tips for you that you may entry in corporate world and move up fast and get high level desirable position what you want.
A strong work ethic pays off
Employers are on the lookout for new talent but more than that they want people who are willing to put in the work and do what it takes to do a good job. You may have all the talent in the world; but without a strong work ethic, motivation, and persistence you may find yourself staying at the bottom instead of moving up.
Exceed company expectations
As you are given new assignments in your internship or entry-level job, always make a plan on how you will exceed the company’s expectations. From the time it takes you to complete the job to the amount and quality of work that the employer expects, always try your best to give a little bit more to exceed the company’s expectations.
Take on additional responsibility whenever possible
Don’t be afraid of hard work. When a project is assigned be sure to take the lead and ask for additional work assignments if the projects take less time than expected. Take the lead in projects and use your strong analytical skills to foresee potential problems or to identify ways in which you make the work flow smoother.
Be a leader
Always take the initiative to speak up and offer to take on new assignments as they are announced. Don’t sit back and let others take the lead when you have the time and ability to do so. It’s what you do today that will govern how quickly you will be able to move up.
Generate new ideas and don’t be afraid to share them
In this competitive world, employers seek new creative talent to fill positions as they open up. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas with others, since this is the only way that the company will be able to recognize your individual and unique contributions.
