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.
Cut your teeth on the corporate world; apply to some amazing marketing internships here.

2. Content Writing:
Like writing stories (not just in exams)? Were Editor of your school magazine or own a blog or a Facebook page? 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!
Have your way with words; apply to some cool content writing internships here.

3. Graphic Designing:
Love doodling or sketching? Know a bit of Photoshop? Keep comparing different logos or website designs thinking about how you could have made them better? If you think you have a good design sense, there are a plethora of opportunities available for you to explore a dormant passion! Graphic design is a hot career field, and you might even discover a new career possibility.
Photoshop your way through the first year; apply to the latest designing internships here.

4. Programming:
Have a knack for coding? Love the world of computers? There are a number of stream independent internships in Web and Mobile App development which you can apply to. You can learn and master a major skill while working in the real world environment.

      Apologies for the inconvenience caused. In general, due to a large number of applications, it takes time for the employers to process the applications. Also, employers get in touch with only those candidates whose applications they like.
      In the meanwhile, I would recommend you to apply to more internships to increase your chances of getting hired. Please also go through this article http://bit.ly/ishelp to improve your chances of getting shortlisted.

      Hi Gowthami,

      Thank you for writing in. You need to work on your applications. Every application you make on Internshala will ask you “Why should you be hired for this internship?” and an effective answer to this question will significantly improve your chances of landing the internship. An effective answer would be one in which you can relate your past knowledge/skills/experiences with the position (For ex. – “As member of our college editorial team, I have creative writing skills that can help in making good marketing campaigns plus I am good with numbers that can help me quickly analyse the results of any marketing campaign and tweak it further.”) as well as explain why you are applying for this position (“For ex. – I wish to build a career in Digital Marketing and this internship would be my stepping stone for the same.” or do some research on the company and write about why that company excites you.)

      You may visit here – http://bit.ly/ishelp for the tips to improve your application while applying for the internships. Hope it helps.
