Apprentissage, Hindu College’s first ever internship fair made its debut on the 19th of February and attracted scores of students from various colleges who had come to seek summer internships. Organised by the internship cell of the college – Abhyas, the fair featured 20 companies mostly offering paid internships which served as the icing on the cake for prospective interns.
Companies from various sectors like journalism, social work, legal and corporate made their mark at the event. Students were required to register for the fair before by paying a nominal fee. However, acknowledging the enthusiasm of students who could not complete the process by the deadline, on the spot registrations were also arranged.
With a number of registered students, the event took place at the Bharat Ram Centre which is originally an art gallery. Students were required to carry their CVs as a pre-condition to approach any company which required the former then to fill up forms after brief interactions. Multiple applications in different companies were becoming a norm considering the diverse experience that each company was promising to offer.
The event concluded at around 3 PM with major companies like Philip Morris International and Human Rights Law Network registering more than 150 students. Thus begins the wait for notifications for students.
