The significance of gaining appropriate work experience prior to actual work for an organization is increasingly gaining popularity.
Internship has now become inevitability or a constraint for efficiently beginning a career in various fields. Internships give an opportunity to the professionals to apply the skills, they have learnt in their academic course, in routine tasks of their job profile.
I think whether students benefit from internships or not depends on a variety of factors. If interns are not given much responsibility, then they will not increase their skills and competencies. Personally, I think internships are overrated. They do teach little beyond what a good educational system teaches in terms of responsibility, staying on task, and doing one's job.
Internship is one step for students to practice what they have learned from school. Some companies give monetary compensation while others don't. Nowadays, on-the-job training is not only offered to students but as well as to unemployed professionals who are willing to render their services for free. It may sound depressing to work for free. However, the major advantage for doing this is that the trainees are usually given the first priority to be hired when the company has a vacancy. Sometimes employers may add another position just to hire the trainee if they like his/ her performance. Goodluck!
It is all about working in virtual work environment and gaining work experience before anyone enters actual workplace. Before entering job, at the end of academic career students enter Internship so that they move from theoretical world to more practical world and made to understand the work ambiance. Internships give an opportunity to the professionals to apply the skills, they have learnt in their academic course, in routine tasks of their job profile. Some companies give monetary compensation while others don't.
The best especially for students is to do an internship during the education. I think you can gain most experience if you do an internship abroad in a country which has a language that is spoken in the economic system. So you also can learn an additional language, too. The trainees can also learn much theoretic stuff wich they would never learn in the studies but they can use it for their later jobs.
Is this an ask a question then answer your own question post? I worked for a huge corporation upon graduating from College, and they didn't ever hire interns.
