Do I get Legit work from home opportunity in Internshala?
Let us talk about my own experience with Internshala. I was searching for an online work from home job opportunity in Internshala. I applied for social media marketing job as I have the skill. I was shortlisted by one of the companies. They asked me to write a blog post on a given topic of 800 words. They stated that once I submit the post, they will call me for a telephonic interview.
If they really wanted to test my writing skill, they should have asked for 200 words article. Whatsoever, I did write a post and submitted to employer. They did not get back to me. To my surprise, I saw my blog post on their website.
I read same kind of experience from different people on Quora. That being said, one of my friends applied for a full time internship training after completing his MBA. He said the internship was great and he had a very good opportunity to learn and get paid as well.
We both had different experience with Internshala.
What is Internshala Student Partnership program?
Internshala also conducts Student Partnership program where you will be representing Internshala in your college when you are studying. It’s a 70 days program where you will have opportunity to fine tune your marketing and communication skills. The best performers would receive prizes and cash incentives. As a student partner, you will need to promote Internshala course certification programs to your fellow students.
My Review on Internshala
The full time internship training works better and help students who are looking for internship program. In case, you’re looking to find a work from home job in Internshala, it may end up wasting your time. Internshala would serve better only if they have a measure to filter fake employers.
If you get a call from the company my suggestion is not to blindly accept and get involved in it. Because you need to check the person who is calling you is really a part of the company or a fake person. You have to verify with the company and then can proceed. If needed can directly visit the company and verify then you can proceed. Verification is must because you may suffer of fraudulent calls and may suffer because of that. Its better to visit the place once so that it is easy for you to judge the company by seeing where it is located, how many people are working, really the company exist still, environment etc… It may also helpful to see some people in that company those who are benefited and can know about there experience.
