“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”
This statement by Benjamin Franklin justifies the idea of taking up internships, especially for students. One gets to know and learn better when one gets involved in the actual work environment. College lectures disseminate all the requisite theoretical knowledge but internships support and help in polishing the knowledge gathered within the four walls of the classroom. Internships have become an integral part of all courses, be it professional or non-professional. Students look forward to the internship part of their education, it is like a trailer before the actual movie comes out. Just like a trailer of a movie gives the audience an idea of what the whole movie may be like and then helps in deciding whether to watch the movie or not, internship gives one an idea of what kind of work will be offered after pursuing a particular course and prepares one for functioning in his/her field of work.
