SKILL CAPITAL 2K18- An Internship Fair

When you walk out in the market today, what is the most important aspect that you bank upon as the key differentiator while you are a student? “SKILLS”, I say!!! While you are not exposed to the market and still afresh, the innate ability to stand apart comes from the skills that you have acquired till that particular time. Be it the oratory skills, the writing skills, negotiation skills, the presentation skills or for that reason any other “industry applicable skill” that speaks volumes about your personality, it always comes in handy.

The Darwinian Theory suggested that, “The mightiest have the right to survive”, but today the industry declares otherwise-“The skilled ones have the right to survive.” The tactfulness in showcasing the required skill at the right times is also an important task. For a student, specifically a Management student, it becomes all the more necessary to first introspect about a particular innate and acquired skill and then try and hone that skill to make the maximum out of it.

While being at a management institute an important activity in the students’ journey is the Summer Internship. The internship paves the way for a smooth transition of an individual from being a naïve or rather raw product of the management sciences into being an ardent and passionate industry driven individual to take on challenges. “While being an institute that provides an industry ready curriculum to the students, we also believe in a strong connect between the students and the employers. Giving a good exposure to the students regarding their specializations and the skills required there within, we look to create exciting and enticing talent that any good company would cherish having on board”, said Mr.Abbas Ali Uppin- Director of the Placement Department. The companies today look out for individuals who are not just skilled and passionate but are also self-motivated to look for probable business growth opportunities.

In alignment with this ideology, the International School of Business and Research (ISBR), Bangalore, along with its students organized an Internship Fair last year in the month of May. The student committee along with the placement department invited about 40 companies on the college campus and as a result of which, 105 students out of 151 got their Summer Internships in a span of 2 days of the entire fair. “It was quite an amazing experience overall. We along with the placement department made the best of the efforts to first understand the pool of talent that we had at our reserve and then approached companies accordingly. Student mapping and approaching the companies gave us a broad understanding of the whole corporate culture. After the grand success of the Internship Fair last year, we took up the onus of helping the junior batch organize a bigger and better event this year”, said Rahul Pandey, the student committee lead of the Internship Fair of 2017. The companies that participated in the fair included industry giants like Adecco, Crowne Plaza, 3M, Arvind Mills, DHL, Namdhari Seeds Pvt. Ltd., etc. which took students from various domains like Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Operations and International Business.

Similar to the previous year, even this year the college decided to organize a fair under the name “SKILL CAPITAL-Where aspirations transpire into reality!!” focusing more on the trying to match the skills of the students to their industry requirement. Building on the success of the previous year and learning from the shortcomings, the student committee along with the placement department induced a base of 60 companies from the industry to map over 200 students. The companies that were on board this time included IBM, Myntra, Future Group, Microland, Ernst & Young, etc. The fair was organized under the guidance of Mr.Amit Kanchanbaras, Mr.Abbas Ali- Director of the Placement Department and the student placement committee from among the junior and the senior batch.

The recruiters had come with a clear intent of picking up the students who show promise and competency for delivering for their respective organizations. The way in which the Internship is looked upon today has changed radically with time. The companies have integrated the effort of hiring interns into the actual employee hiring process by offering a pre placement offer or a PPO to the deserving and suitable candidates. This not only reduces the intangible efforts of initial screening of the candidates but also reduces the burden of training them and saves both cost and time.

All in all the internship Fair- “Skill Capital”, proved to be a huge success and created what might be termed as a benchmark for the next batches to come in the college and encourage them to aim higher and bigger in their pursuit of a worthy professional career.

It elevated confidence and also taught them how to work in a team and in various challenging situations.

Lastly, the prime intention of pulling up a fest was to allow students to go through a period of recreation. The cultural fest replenished students with new vigor and enthusiasm. Memories and friendships were created which will be cherished forever. In the vicious life cycle of a student, revolving around studies, “Abhyudaya” showed a certain degree of inflation in the excitement levels of students.
