So, the intermediate board exams are finally over. Gone are the days when you woke up and went to bed with only one thing in mind—study. However, once a few days have passed, you would realize that you have a lot of time to kill without any constructive task in hand.
You may get fed up with the monotonous routine and find these days endless. To make this time productive, you can find something that exposes you to a completely new world—the corporate sector. Yes, we are talking about doing an internship.
There is a general perception that the intermediate level is not enough to land an internship. However, many organizations in Pakistan accept interns having given their intermediate board exams as well. Here are a few of those:
Both the National Assembly and the Senate of Pakistan offer internships for intermediate students. You might think this experience may not be relevant to your specific subjects or career aspirations. However, it is an amazing opportunity to learn about your country’s institutions.
Many of us do not pay much attention to Pakistan Studies, as our major focus is to pass the exam instead of learning. Furthermore, the internet does not offer accurate or in-depth information about these institutions. Above all, apart from getting exposure to the professional world, you get to learn a lot. Besides, it looks good on your CV.
Digital marketing firms are always on a lookout for human resources. They would train you for the specific skills and give you hands-on experience as well. If you have a knack for writing, an internship as a content writer is good for you. You can learn graphic designing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as well. These are among the most required skills presently.
The Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies hire customer service representatives (CSR) and also take interns on board regardless of the educational credentials. They can impart good communication skills and this internship can lead to a job opportunity as well.
You can also do an internship in a bank. You will get to learn the structural aspects of the organization as well as basic skills like data entry, communication, and Word.
