Recently, a student from Lady Shri Ram College for Women bagged an offer of 1.4 lakhs by an American bank for a two-month internship. Likewise, another LSR student was offered 1 lakh for a two-month internship at Ernst and Young.
During the year 2015-16, a total of 279 internships were offered to the students, out of which 97 were paid ones. A total of 79 companies offered internships and recruited interns. In the previous year, LSR had secured a large number of placements among Delhi University colleges, consisting of offers from various startups and reputed firms. Dr. Kanika K. Ahuja, associate professor in the Department of Psychology, LSR, and the convener of the placement, said, “We receive phone calls every day from companies offering internships to our students. Out of an outgoing batch of about 900 students, at least a third of the students have done internships, making it highly attractive for potential recruiters”.
Shaina Ahluwalia, internship coordinator of the placement cell said, “2015-16 had been one of the best years in terms of placements as well as internships. We’ve noted a remarkable rise in the highest paid internship from last year, a rise in department-wise internship recruitments, as well as a qualitative increase of the diverse type of internships our students receive”.
Tanima Nigam, another coordinator added, “I would always hope that we manage to break the internship record by increasing the availability of jobs and encouraging students from diverse backgrounds to believe that the placement cell is capable of finding them what they are looking for”.
During the last session, LSR had witnessed the highest placement offer of 29 lakhs per annum, with a total of 112 students getting placed.
