4 Kinds of Internships That Even First Year Students Can Apply To!

Summer internships for first year studentsVivek is a first-year engineering student who’s looking for an internship to acquire new skills and build on to his CV to help his career later on. Many of his friends and seniors had told him that first-year students don’t get internships due to the lack of technical skills and expertise. Vivek, however, doesn’t stop trying and eventually gets two internships within the first year.

If you also wonder whether any internships are available for 1st-year students, the answer is- Plenty! There are a LOT of internships available in non-technical fields and slowly many students, like Vivek, are exploiting these opportunities. Many internships are also work-from-home aka virtual internships, and you can intern even during your semesters and not only during the summer break! Some of the prominent areas wherein you can find internships are:

1. Sales & Marketing:
Loved the movie RocketSingh – Salesman of the year? If you have good communication skills and like to meet and interact with new people, a sales/marketing internship is your ticket to get a first-hand experience of the business world. It doesn’t hurt that it improves your chances of claiming the title of Sponsorship Head during your college fest. In addition, this is also the best way of honing your soft skills and preparing yourself if you decide to do an MBA later on.

A content writing internship provides you the chance to hone your writing skills and even get paid for it! From Search Engine Optimization to infographics, you learn a lot of new skills and are introduced to a diverse range of fields. It can also help you to become the Editor-in-chief of your college magazine or even the media head!
