There will be thousands of others passing with you from various colleges. Searching a job after the completion of the final will be a hurricane task. It will be in your favor if from the first year itself you start molding yourself as per the job you want, make your mark in the college academics and till the end of third year itself you will have a PPO in your hand. Doesn’t it seem like the most perfect thing? Yes, it is and even you can be the one becoming a part of it by learning some basic DO’s and DON’T’s.
When you enter the college, your classmates will not be your real competitors. Your real competition lies outside. These are those thousands of students who have take admission with you, in the other colleges. Some might be in the top institutes and some in the others. So from the starting only focus on competing with them. You might be the topper of your college but that doesn’t means you are at the top.

These points will surely help you in scoring those extra points over the other interns. In the end it is all about how to utilize each day of your internship in showcasing your capabilities. Combine your hard work with the extra work and you will hit the right chord.
So go ahead and make that summer internship into a full time job offer. Good luck.
