So you decided on getting some professional hands-on experience and some real skills? What better a way to get started than by doing internships while you are still in college! Letsintern provides you a gateway to all kinds of internship and job opportunities from all sectors, across the country.
Signing up and searching for internships on Letsintern is completely FREE.
Here is what you first need to do to get started
Your profile on Letsintern is your first impression for an employer looking for interns, therefore it is very important that you complete your profile with all the necessary details before you apply for any opportunity.
Apart from your basic details, your profile should have the following specifics:
Let the employers know what you are capable of. Select from the already available list, a handful of things you think you are good at and can put to use during an internship. (For eg: Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Content Writing.) You don't need to be an expert at these skills, but just those that you are most focused on building and want to learn more about.
Your interests reflect which area, sector or industry you'd want to work in. This helps the employers offering an internship in the area of your interest to invite you to work for them. Employers can then also invite you to check out their internship openings and apply to it if you are interested! You will also receive a weekly newsletter from us containing a list of all the popular internship opportunities available in the category you entered here. In case you want to change something later and want to get internships from other categories as well, simply login to your account and click on edit profile.
Your educational background forms a very important aspect of your profile. Some internship opportunities come with an eligibility criterion on the education front as well so, tell us about the degree you hold/are pursuing and from where.
Nothing makes you stand out from the rest of the candidates than a similar or relevant work you've done in the past. This is your time to show-off. Fill the details of all your past work experiences and the responsibilities you undertook during each one of them to give the employer an insight into what tasks can you handle efficiently. You can also link them to the projects you have worked upon for good measure. If you don't have any work experience so far, that's okay. Come back to this, when you do :)
Add your mobile number, email address and residential address here to make it easy for the employer to reach you in case of of being either short-listed, selected, scheduling of interviews etc. Ensure this number is correct, always updated and a number you can be contacted on. Only companies that you apply to will be able to see your contact details.
