When do I get to start interning?

You get access to unlimited internships immediately. This is applicable on all plans. Once you apply, you await confirmation of your application. In some cases there may be an interview over a video call. Post that you get started.

I am not very well versed in all these fields but I am very interested. Should I still intern?

Fab question and an important one.

Here is how you can approach it.
1. Identify skills you already have, like video editing, writing, speaking, reserach etc. Look at internships which allow you to try out these skills in REAL WORLD projects. 2. Look at fields you want to intern in, like Fitness, Music management, App development etc. Apply for an internship in this field for Mentoring from the expert, in exchange list out things you can help the mentor with. ( Which could be the skills you have ( Point 1 ) ) Continue to invest in additional online programs or youtube videos to get a strong hold of the work you will be doing during the internship. We also have loads of short & practical skilling workshops online. watch out for them.

Will I get to learn new things during the internship?

Yes! Most definitely. So here's the thing. An internship is the MIDDLE POINT between SCHOOL and WORK. Look at the below illustration to understand more. We encourage you to self learn the basics on the side during the internship so you can use the internship to work on stuff with real time mentoring from the expert on the work you do. An internship IS NOT a place for you to learn things from scratch. If that is what you wish to do, we would recommend signup for classes and online courses. An internship is where you get to apply things that you love or are good at.

What role must my parents play in this internship?

To make the best use fo the internship for you, it is best if you are to work on the projects independently. In some cases, information shared by your Mentor at work will be confidential too. We know you will respect it. It is important that your parents are aware of the internships you have been accepted into. From duration to roles. Once you start an internship, you will be expected to finish it. Have an honest discussion with your parents and reach out to them for help wrt time management especially if you have exams and school projects around the corner. Dropping out in between for various reasons may reflect badly on your profile.

What is the kind of time I need to put in?

It depends on the internship and your personal ''work'' speed.

We have internships listing from 2 hours all the way to 2 months.
Choose what works for you. You have ample time to do as many internships as you wish to through the platform. The listing will also mention an averag amount of time that will be expected from you. Look into that before you apply.

How many internships can I apply for?
