Background

Students who are studying for MCS/MCA/M.Sc. ( Computer Science ) typically have to do internship (Industrial Training) with some company for 6-months (basically their last semester of college) as a part of their degree requirements. The students are expected to work full time for the company during this period, and are typically paid a stiped by the company. At the end of this period, the company is expected to give a certificate of completion of the internship, and the student are expected to submit a project report and give a presentation in their college. These students have usually completed all the other requirements of their degree, so they do have all the knowledge that a MSc/MCA/MCS degree holder is expected to have – specifically, exposure to .NET, Java, PHP & Linux etc. Internships for a number of colleges will start in January 2010 (to continue until June 2010), so December 2009 is the right time to get students.
And other side we have lots of IT startup companies who are looking for best talent. So we are organizing an “Internship Mela” where companies that are offering internships can give a short presentation (3 minutes) to the students, and then students can apply to the companies they find most interesting.

Internship Mela – 23 December 2009

‘Internship Mela’ will be held Wednesday, 23st December, 2009, in the morning, at Institute of Management and Career Courses (IMCC) campus, 131 Mayur Colony, Kothrud, Pune 411029.The details are as follows:

  • All companies who would like to offer full-time 6-month internships are requested to register at the Internship Mela registration page
  • All students, from any college in Pune (or outside), who are doing a Computer Science degree course and who are interested in doing a 6-month internship starting in January 2010 are open. No registration is required. Just come to IMCC at 9:30am on 23rd December, 2009.
  • Company representatives are requested to be at the venue at 9:45am.
  • From 10am to 1pm: Each company gets to present to the engineers for 3 minutes. Give a quick introduction of yourself, your company, what projects you plan to do with the interns, what kind of skills you are looking for, and whether you will be paying a stipend or not, and your contact info.
  • In the afternoon, smaller rooms will be made available to companies who are interesting in meeting students right away. (Alternatively, companies who don’t want to stick around in the afternoon can ask the students to contact them later over email/phone.)

The idea is that this is a marketplace designed to allow companies to find students quickly.

To register as a company offering internships, please follow these steps

  • Join the techstart mailing list (click on “Join this group” link on the right side of the page)
  • After joining, go to the Internship Mela Registration Page and add yourself to the list there. (Click on the “Edit this page” button, then add your info just above the last line in the list.)
  • Come to IMCC at 9:45am on 23rd December, 2009. Prepare a 3-minute talk that can help the potential interns decide whether they are interested in your project. Be as specific as possible. (Note: there will be no slides/projector)

Students interested in this program – just show up at the venue at 9:30am (see details above). No registration required. Bring multiple copies of your resume.

      My expectation is that there will be about 20 to 25 companies – but we will know the final number only by Tuesday. Companies that are interested will register at this page. Registration has started today, and companies will continue to get added over the weekend and Monday/Tuesday. Keep checking that page.

    What will be the procedure for recruiting interns i.e.Aptitude,Quantitative & rech.rounds ?

    • navin says:

      @Vaibhav,
      After listening to the companies talk about themselves and what kinds of internships they are offering, you apply to the companies that you find most interesting.

      Each company will have it’s own procedure for selecting candidates…

  7. navin says:

    Those interested in knowing how many companies will be there, see the second comment above.

    @Prasad, At this time, this internship mela is only for computer science students. If there is enough demand, we’ll do another one for management students.

    @helen, you certainly can attend. I’m not sure of what and whether there are any visa restrictions against you doing an internship, but as long as you take care of that aspect, we (i.e. Internship Mela) don’t have any issues with you attending.

  20. Varun says:

    Hi Navin,

    This was my first meeting through Pune OCC, I was very much interested to join the same. I’m not a student and also not an entrepreneur I’m doing job in an organization, still I managed anyhow to join this event by taking an off from my office, but the volunteers @ IMCC did’nt allowed.

    I wanted to have a look at the potential of the students and also the companies there in. But unfortunately could’nt.

    It would be great if you can share some links for the videos (if any) and also soft copies of CVs.

    Regards,
    Varun

    hi,
    am jothi and am nw doing MCA fifth semester in a college in tamil nadu, here we have t do final semester project from dec 2010 to may 2011. can i apply for the internship.

    • navin says:

      @jothi, Sure you can apply. However, I would suggest:
      1. When applying to a company, write a covering email in proper English. With full, correct spellings of words. Appropriate capitalization.
      2. Try to find out about the company and only apply to those you find interesting.
      3. Write a separate email to each company indicating why you’re interested in doing an internship with that company.
      4. Can you actually come to Pune to do an internship?!
