Some students may feel short changed by the “slave labor” of internships. However it not only help you make connections inside the firm but may lead to full time jobs. ST cited the example of film-maker Steven Spielberg who started his career as an unpaid intern for the editing department at Universal Studios, according to Forbes. As did Oprah Winfrey in CBS.

(Be careful that some of these sites are “paid holiday programs”, ie you pay the company for an experience overseas. Some internship positions do not pay you a salary.)

Some months back, I asked Mr L if he would join me for a lunch catch up with a mutual ex-colleague, Mr T. We have not met in 14 years. Mr L was busy being angry about everything, his former employer, his PHd application being rejected by XYZ University.

Fast forward to June, I found out that if Mr L had joined me for lunch with Mr T, he could have walked his way into a job vacancy in Mr T’s company.

Is this how Krumboltz’s Happenstance works? Sometimes opportunities whiz by and miss us because we are engrossed in the past.

Lesson learnt today.

As an IJ, unplanned meetings drain me. But think of the exciting future that awaits you from the little step you take.

Recently some of my international MBA Students asked me about recommendations for recruiting in India. This set me about researching for dome resources to start them off.

How do you choose a consultant?
1. Start with a reputable firm in your market segment.

2. Like all services, it depends on your chemistry with the person, and a match between the firm’s skills, your skills and interest. The only way to find out, is to call and try.

Here are some recommendations, albeit not comprehensive.

ABC Consultants: Top Recruitment Services Company in India

Randstad

Accord Group

Talent Mappers

Software:
