Internship!!!

The word seems to be pretty vogue among all students. The word itself demands respect among us. The reasons which were offered to me-
1) They offer you real-time professional experience
2) Make u feel worthy enough to be paid.

So Is this post an epitome of internship credibility? No. This post is all about my frustness (frustration) that I experienced in all my past Internships. Why are they sooooooooo Highly rated among us?? In a usual classroom they are always people who inform us about the value of a professional experience. So what is this professional experience? Simply Its just working among more and more constraints. How can a constraint be good. Constraint is always bad. It CONSTRAINTS your brain. Let me put in some examples (to all those who didn’t experience it)

You can build a 20mt cantilevered space in a classroom. In real world money is a constraint. In classroom you can think of exact engineering in constructing a beam. In real world just copy the building codes. In classroom you can discuss your thought and if prof rejects it, you don’t have to push a panic button. In office be careful with every word you use. Classrooms are built so that you earn how to learn. Offices are built so that u learn how to earn.

Offices are better for those who live for bread. Classrooms are better for those who bread to live. Choose which category you belong to.

P.S. - Never abuse your profs. They were the one who taught you how to learn.

  5. No study has ever done any good to the world by itself, dear. It is when you implement stuff inside whatever constraints and restrictions and difficulties and challenges that they make sense to the world. Imagine everyone from the first inventor just thoeritically working, never producing anything except some experimentation.
    I appreciate your feeling. But you need to look at the larger picture.
    And well, no one complains about every single prof. The main reason of people complaining is either they ignoring a student's viewpoint, and try to suppress it instead of remoulding it if needed, or because they just don't care, or in a third case, rather rare, that they aren't worth the job.

  16. well, there is always a strict & erect line btween virtual and real world.
    from my point of view, training is a periodto learn how to cope up with specified materials, on the other hand, classes are just a jist on the inventories. in real world, things are not custom built, unless u have ur own workshop, and the only field is mainly interiors.

  22. well it is at least important to know the market value of your designs and in comes internship or office experience for that matter.
    or let's say it is impt to also know your own market value...how much u can endure, to what limit you can push your self.
