“Dreams do come true; all you need to do is keep holding on and swinging till you get what you want,” says Monika, who interned at IIM Lucknow.
Internshala’s Your Internship Story contest (http://bit.ly/PJiI5X) is seeing many more such realizations and lessons learnt put to paper. Whether it is the girl who learnt about how death is made easy through palliative medicine, or the guy who found love at his internship, all prove how life-changing internships can be. If there is a commonality among all these unique experiences, it is the sense of wonderment every intern feels when they apply classroom theories in real life. Isn’t that what internships are all about, learning about how the real world works and moulding yourself accordingly?
