इंटर्नशिप का गरजेची आहे ?

दरवर्षी पास  होणाऱ्या १५ लाख अभियांत्रिकी विद्यार्थ्यांमधून केवळ % विद्यार्थ्यांना रोजगार मिळण्याची हमी असते. असं का ? याचं कारण म्हणजे मागणीपेक्षा पुरवठा जास्त हा आहे. कंपनी वेगवेगळ्या उमेदवारांना पडताळून कसा पाहणार ? एखाद्या उमेदवाराकडे अगोदरच्या कामाचा अनुभव असेल, तर याचा अर्थ त्याला कामाबद्दल प्रत्यक्ष माहिती आहे आणि कंपनीला संबंधित कर्मचाऱ्यासाठी/ एम्प्लॉयीसाठी संसाधने खर्च करावी लागणार नाहीत. कामाचा अनुभव असलेला कर्मचारी/एम्प्लॉयी पहिल्या दिवसापासून उत्पादनक्षम ठरतो.

मग एखादा पदवीधारक कामाचा अनुभव आणि प्रात्यक्षिक ज्ञान यांचा अडथळा कसा पार करू शकतो ? विद्यार्थ्यांना प्रात्यक्षिक ज्ञान आत्मसात करण्याचा एकदम सरळ मार्ग म्हणजे इंटर्नशिप ! इंटर्नशिपद्वारे विद्यार्थ्यांना पुस्तकी ज्ञान प्रत्यक्षात वापरण्याची संधी मिळते. मोठमोठ्या कंपनी विद्यार्थ्यांना इंटर्नशिप प्रदान करतात कारण, त्यांना नियमित कर्मचाऱ्यांएवढा पगार द्यावा लागत नाही आणि गरज असेल तेवढ्या कालावधीमध्ये इंटर्नशिप संपविता येते. विद्यार्थ्यांना इंटर्नशिपमधून काय मिळते ? विद्यार्थ्यांना इंटर्नशिपमधून मिळणारा सगळ्यात मोठा फायदा म्हणजे संबंधित क्षेत्रातील कामाचा अनुभव !

 

    इंटर्नशिपसाठी विद्यार्थी कसे अर्ज करू शकतात ?

विद्यार्थी आपल्या कॉलेजच्या ट्रेनिंग आणि प्लेसमेंट ऑफिसद्वारे अर्ज करू शकतात. तसेच आज काल internshala, letsintern यांसारख्या वेबसाईटच्या मदतीने इंटर्नशिपसाठी अगदी घर बसल्या अर्ज करता येतो. कॉलेजमध्ये शिकत असताना, विद्यार्थी २ सत्रांच्या (semester) मधे इंटर्नशिप करू शकतात. या सुट्टीचा कालावधी १-२ महिने जरी पकडला तरी जेव्हा विद्यार्थी ३ वर्षांच्या शैक्षणिक काळामध्ये ६/१०  महिन्यांचा अनुभव त्यांना पदवीधर होण्याआधीच मिळतो. या पद्धतीमध्ये केवळ एक दोष असा आहे की बहुतांशी विद्यार्थ्यांना इंटर्नशिपसाठी योग्य मोबदला मिळत नाही.

 

         पण एकूण वर्षे कामाचा अनुभव आणि इंटर्नशिपसाठी कमीत कमी हजार पगार, तेही फक्त वर्षांच्या पदवीमध्ये असं आधी तुम्ही ऐकले आहे काय? हे शक्य आहे का ? होय, विद्यार्थ्यांना हे शक्य आहे, केवळ अल्फाडिग्री (Alpha-Degree) मध्ये.

         हे अल्फाडिग्री म्हणजे नक्की काय ?

मुळतः जर्मनीसारख्या प्रगत देशातून आलेली हि संकल्पनारुस्तमजी अकॅडमी फॉर ग्लोबल करियर्स” (RAGC) यांसारख्या महाविद्यालयांनी भारतामध्ये आणली आहे. या अभ्यासक्रमात, विद्यार्थी पहिले महिने पुस्तकी ज्ञान मिळवतात. पुढील महिने ते इंटर्नशिप पूर्ण करतात. आठवड्यातील दिवस विद्यार्थी इंटर्न म्हणून काम करतात, दिवस कॉलेजमध्ये राहतात. उर्वरित दिवस आरामासाठी राखून ठेवलेला असतो. इंटर्नशिपसाठी १८ वर्षांच्या वरील वयोगटातील विद्यार्थ्यांना हजार पगार मिळू शकतो, तसेच काही विद्यार्थी १४१५ हजारापर्यंत पगार मिळवण्यात यशस्वी होऊ शकतात. अशा विद्यार्थ्यांना नोकरीच्या शोधात भटकण्याची गरज नाही, त्यांना इंटर्नशिप देणारी कंपनी नोकरी देऊ शकते तसेच कॉलेज कॅम्पस मध्ये येणाऱ्या कंपनी कामाचे अनुभव असलेल्या विद्यार्थ्यांना प्राधान्य देतात.

१० वी/ १२वी के बाद किसी भी कॉलेज में दाखिला लेने से पहले ये जानिए !


हर साल पास होने वाले १५ लाख अभियांत्रिकी छात्रों में से केवल ७% छात्रों को रोजगार मिलने संभावना रेहती है |

ऐसा क्यों ? डिमांड से ज़्यादा सप्लाई इसका प्रमुख कारण है | कंपनी अलग अलग उमीदवारों को कैसे परखती है ? किसी उमीदवार को काम का अनुभव है, इसका मतलब उसे काम की अधिक जानकारी है और कंपनी को संबंधित कर्मचारी के लिए अधिक संसाधने खर्च करने की जरुरत नहीं | काम का अनुभव होने वाला कर्मचारी अपने पहले ही दिन से कंपनी के लिए लाभदायक ठरता है |

फिर एक स्नातक काम का अनुभव और व्यवहारिक ज्ञान इन का उचित गठबंधन कैसे करे ?
विद्यार्थियों को व्यवहारिक ज्ञान हासिल करने का एकदम सरल मार्ग है इंटर्नशिप का ! इंटर्नशिप के जरिये विद्यार्थी अपने किताबी ज्ञान का उपयोग अपने दैनिक जीवन में कर सकते है | बड़ी बड़ी कंपनी विद्यार्थिओं को इंटर्नशिप प्रदान करती हैं, क्योंकि विद्यार्थिओं को एक कर्मचारी जितना वेतन देने की आवश्यकता नहीं होती और कंपनी को जितनी जरुरत है उतने ही कालावधि में इंटर्नशिप समाप्त की जा सकती है | और छात्रों को इंटर्नशिप के जरिये उनके संलग्न क्षेत्र का अनुभव प्राप्त करना आसान हो जाता है |

इंटर्नशिप के लिए कैसे अप्लाई कर सकते है ?
विद्यार्थी अपने कॉलेज के ट्रेनिंग और प्लेसमेंट ऑफिस के मदत से अप्लाई कर सकते है | आज-कल internshala, letsintern जैसे वेबसाइट के जरिये छात्र घर बैठे इंटर्नशिप के लिए अपनी अर्जी दाखल कर सकते है | कॉलेज में सीखते समय विद्यार्थी २ टर्म (semester) के दौरान इंटर्नशिप कर सकते हैं | अगर छुट्टी का अवधि १-२ महीने भी होगा तो छात्र ३ साल की शिक्षात्मक कालावधि में ६ महीने का अनुभव आराम से प्राप्त कर सकता है |

लेकिन, ३ साल के पदवी में, कुल २ साल काम का अनुभव और इंटर्नशिप में कम से कम ५ हजार वेतन, ऐसा कभी पहले कहीं देखा हैं ? क्या ये मुमकिन भी है ? हां, छात्रों के लिए ये मुमकिन है, सिर्फ अल्फा-डिग्री (Aplha-Degree) में |

लेकिन अल्फा-डिग्री क्या होती हैं ?


मूलतः जर्मनी जैसे प्रगत देश से ये संकल्पना भारत में “रुस्तमजी अकॅडमी फॉर ग्लोबल करियर्स” (RAGC) ये संस्था ने प्रस्तावित की हैं | इस अभ्यासक्रम में, छात्र पहले ६ महीने किताबी ज्ञान संपादित कर सकते हैं और बाकी के ६ महीने वह इंटर्नशिप पूरा कर सकते है | सप्ताह में से ४ दिन छात्र इंटर्न के रूप में काम करेंगे, २ दिन कॉलेज में उपस्थित रहेंगे और १ दिन आराम के लिए बाकी रहेगा | इंटर्नशिप के जरिये १८ साल और अधिक उम्र के छात्र प्रति महीने ५ हजार कमा सकते हैं, कुछ छात्रों को १५ हजार तक भी वेतन मिल सकता है | ऐसे विद्यार्थिओं को जल्द ही नौकरी मिल जाती हैं, क्योंकि इंटर्नशिप देने वाली कंपनी उनको परमानेंट कर्मचारी बना सकती हैं और कॉलेज कैंपस में आनेवाली कंपनी हमेशा काम का अनुभव रहने वाले विद्यार्थिओं को प्राधान्य देते हैं |

अल्फा-डिग्री एक कारण है कि RAGC को “भारत का नंबर १ व्यावसायिक शिक्षा और प्रशिक्षण संस्थान” से सम्मानित किया गया है | RAGC न केवल राष्ट्रीय बल्कि अंतरराष्ट्रीय डिग्री और ऑटोमोबाइल इंजीनियरिंग, कंस्ट्रक्शन इंजीनियरिंग, इलेक्ट्रिकल इंजीनियरिंग, होटल प्रबंधन और व्यापार प्रबंधन में डिप्लोमा प्रदान करता है। किसी भी कॉलेज में प्रवेश लेने से पहले इस बारे में जरूर सोचें।

Why Internship matter?

Current scenario:

You need experience for any job. Also, you need a job for any experience, to begin with.
Statistics show, only 7% of total engineers are employable out of 1.5 million engineers passing out every year from various technology institutes. Why? The major reason for this is the higher supply and lesser demand for engineers in the present scenario.

How can any employer differentiate between 2 candidates?
If one has relevant work experience. The candidate with a relevant work experience who has gone through practical learning definitely has an edge over the non-experienced ones as the and the employer will not have to train the person all over again and the work begins right from the first day.

How can any graduate break this barrier of work experience and practical learning?INTERNSHIPS! It the best form of learning for us, as it gives the platform to the students to apply the theoretical learning in practical life. Interns are always welcome as the main focus for them is to gain job experience and the duration of work is short. The students have a major takeaway from these internships and that is Work experience.

How can students apply for Internships?
There are many online portals like Internshala, LetsIntern… students can also apply through Training and placement cells of their respective college. For any regular college, the student can intern during their semester break which goes for as long as 1-2 months. Let us put it this way, if a student undergoes internship for two months every year in a 3-year degree programme, he would have a work experience of 6 months by the time he passes out.

But have you heard of work experience of 2 years and a salary of Rs 5K per month as a minimum stipend in a degree of 3 years? This is the scenario if you pursue Alpha-Degree programme. 

What’s an alpha-Degree?
It is the concept of degree usually worked upon in Germany but is now offered in institutes in India like “Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers”. Here students attend college for the first 6 months. and then they receive an internship for the next 6 months. Every week, they intern for 4 days, attend college for 2 days and complete assignments for 1 day/ take weekly off. Students who are 18 years and above get ₹5000 per month, that amounts to Rs 60,000 per annum. Some students even manage to bag an internship up to ₹14,500 per month. These students get absorbed within the company during their internship period itself.

Alpha-Degree is one of the reasons why RAGC has been awarded “India’s No. 1 Vocational education and Training Institute.” The college offers not only national but also an international degree and a diploma in automobile engineering, construction engineering, electrical engineering, hotel management & Business management.

6 Food Items to Eat During Exam Season

 

Nutrition is very important when you are headed for examination times, but it is the first thing that takes a back seat to most students when they are fully engrossed in preparing for exams. Junk food, energy drinks, and other unhealthy eatables replace the healthy intakes, leading to bad health, lack of concentration and other disorders.

What most students may not know is that while such junk eatables are unhealthy for your gut, they also impact your performance in exams. According to BBC, healthy food during exams can improve your performance, especially a good and sumptuous breakfast.

Here’s a list of food items that should be taken during examinations:

1) Green leafy vegetables:

Spinach, fenugreek, broccoli are just some examples of green leafy vegetables, which are highly rich in Vitamins and anti-oxidants. Rich in Vitamin K, green vegetables are said to create pathways to the brain

2) Seasonal fruits:

Fruits are filled with vitamins, which help in making your brain cells energetic and more alert, thus enhancing your grasping power. Having a fruit as a snack during your exam preparations is an excellent way to fill your stomach and keep yourself healthy.

3) Pulses:

Pulses are rich in folic acid, which helps in clearing homocysteine from the body. Homocysteine is a non-proteinogenic α-amino acid, which causes cognitive decline. Thus, intake of pulses can ensure building cognitive power, helping you to learn and understand better.

4) Nuts:

Nuts are packed with fats, nutrients and the right amount of carbohydrates, which help you fill your belly during those spells of hunger when you are busy preparing for your exams. Nuts are considered as energy packets for quick fills. You can either eat your favorite types of nuts directly or can use them in dishes you love.

5) Eggs:

One egg a day is your source of vitamins, minerals, and required fats. Rich in Vitamin B12, eggs make an excellent source of energy food for you. Studies also suggest that eating eggs daily can reduce chances of getting heart diseases, cancer, fatigue, and make you feel full. Hence, eating eggs during your exams can satiate your hungry belly with right amounts of nutrition.

6) Yogurt:

Yogurt or curd is filled with enormous amounts of good pro-bacteria that help in cleansing your gut. It helps in filling you up with energy and remove any bad bacteria from the gut that can have ill effects like nausea, poor stomach, etc. thus, keeping you healthy during your examination time.

With a right intake of healthy food and short breaks during long hours of studies, one can rejuvenate themselves in exam times.

5 things that can make your parents happy during exam season

Exam season is usually a taxing time, whether you are prepared with your syllabus or not. With growing competition, students have started taking a lot of pressure on them, which in turn brings stress on parents.

According to PsychologyToday, the more you struggle to get free of stress, the more it seems to grab a control over you. Hence, during exam times, if you are tensed, it can have a ripple effect on your parents as well. To avoid such a tensed situation at your place during exams, you can try out these five ways to ensure that your parents are happy during your exam season:

1) Be prepared:

First and foremost thing to set right is to be prepared. Yes! You read it right! And having said that, exam preparations have to be started from the very beginning of the sessions and not to be procrastinated till the last hour of judgment. If you are prepared well from the beginning, a stressful situation will not occur in your family at the final time of examinations. You will be relaxed and so will your parents be.

2) Be positive:

Hit the exam season with a positive mindset. Remember it’s never too late to begin. Even if you have started late, fill your mind with positivity that slowly but subtly you will get there.

3) Create a healthy environment:

According to News24, parents have also experienced lack of sleep due to anxiety during their children’s exams, so much that their mental health also seems to have shown signs of stress. Hence, creating a healthy environment at home during your exams is the key to keep your and your parents’ sanity in place. Again this routes to our point one, which is being prepared.

4) Sleep Well:

Take ample sleep, which will keep your mind healthy. Also seeing you stressing during exam times, your parents will also lose their sleep.

5) Eat well:

Parents are often worried about their children’s diet, especially during exam time. Make sure that while you prepare well for your exams, you are eating also sumptuously.

P.S.: Exams are an important part of academia to measure the efforts put in by you, your faculties and your parents. However, one should not be too hard on themselves and take the undue stress. A healthy and relaxed mind can help you bring more results than a stressed and hassled mind.

10 Quick tips for Final Exam Preparation

Over the years and especially in today’s time, exams are perceived as something that creates stress in students’ minds. As the exam date approaches, students tend to feel tense. In myriads of cases, it is seen that due to lack of preparation, several bright students also settle with low scores and immense stress and in some unfortunate cases, students resort to extreme steps.
It is thus important to accept that exams are for your benefit and not for you to stress. However, it is easier said than done.
Nonetheless, here are 10 quick tips on how students can deal with final preparation for exams:

1. Don’t stress:

Ever given a thought about how the culture of exam came into existence? Exams came into existence from self-assessment. For example, cricket players go through the fitness test just to make sure they are ready for the match. Similarly, the exam is a way to assess yourself, before you are put to the test of real struggles in life. Hence don’t stress on the incomplete syllabus and focus on your strong areas. Prepare them first so that you gain the confidence of having completed some portion and then reach other portions.

2. Wake up early:

It is scientifically proven that early morning learning stays for longer time. The mind is fresh in the morning and is stress-free. According to a post published on BBC, individuals have better cognitive abilities in the morning than in late hours.

3. Do meditation:

Meditation has proven multiple benefits, not just in day to day lives, but also for exam preparations. Meditation keeps the mind stress free, improves concentration, and increases retention.

4. Prepare with the application of the theoretical topic:

Learn using practical models of the theoretical topics, for visual experience. Visual and application-based learning has shown to have better retention, compared to mere theoretical learning.

5. Try different ways:

Use kinesthetic or physical, visual and hearing based model. Studies have proved that by using different learning methods, one can have better retention of subjects.

6. A study partner:

Having a study partner can sometimes prove to be beneficial as you may get a fresh perspective on the whole learning exercise. However, it depends on person to person, and their choice of learning style.

7. Take breaks:

Taking breaks during studies can help you have better retention and keep your mind fresh for longer time.

8. Sleep well:

Good amount of rest is required to keep the mind fresh and stress-free.

9. Make a schedule:

As cliché as it sounds, but a schedule before an exam is the most important part of the routine. Make a schedule and try to stick to it.

10. Keep buffer time:

As most of us tend to procrastinate and postpone the schedule, be practical and keep a day or two as buffer time. It will allow you some time for revision as well.
There are many ways a student can plan their examination preparations, but nevertheless, it is important to understand that exams are for your learning. Treat exams as the process, and not the target from reaching A to B.
