According to Wikipedia, an intern
is one who works in a temporary position with an emphasis on
on-the-job training rather than merely employment. You could be a
student or about to start a new career for yourself.
As an Intern in Volunteering India you
will be unpaid as we lack resources to support you, but on the other
hand we will support you completely and make sure that your experience
with us makes you a thorough professional in your work life. The
skills required for the assignment provided to you would be provided.
The time for the Internship could be 6-12 weeks, but can be shorter or
These are the kinds of Internship that
Work experience Internship: Most
often this will be in the second or third year of the school or
College period. The placement can be from 2 months to sometimes even
one full year (it's your wish). During this period the intern is
supposed to use the things he has learned in College or school and put
it in practice. This way the Interns gets work experience in their
field of study. The gained experience will be helpful to finish up the
last year of the study.
Research Internship (graduation) or
dissertation Internship: This is mostly done by students that are
in their last year. With this kind of Internship a student does
research for Volunteering India or one of our subsidiary
organizations. There are many areas where we need inputs after intense
research. You can help us with that through these efforts.
Another kind of Internship will be
those students interested in taking a year off after completing their
undergraduate degree to give them an opportunity to travel or do some
kind of volunteer work or Internship. They may not feel quite ready to
settle down in a job or make decisions based on establishing a career
or settling down in a new location.
The focus areas of Internship could be
in health care, women's issues, and education of children, culture,
child development, sustainable development, and income generation.
However, Volunteering India can craft an Internship projects in nearly
any area you wish.
