    Is it mandatory to write a resume for getting the internship?

    Doing my 3rd year of Engineering now and itís time for me to check out for some internships in companies and my friends were saying that we need to prepare the resume. Is that really needed? Can you please tell me why it is needed? If so what all should be added in the resume?

    yes of course, the company needs to what you are and what type of standards you have for the internship.its better if you have a standard resume under your belt.you can add some thing unique from others so that you can prove different and get cited easily.you can add some of your certificates details which are so important and also activities you are involved during college fests etc..

    Hi friend

    I think it will certainly be better if you prepare a good resume for your internship as the competition today is very tough and even for such minor things like internship you need to be very good as most reputed companies only select a handful of individuals for internship..So its better if you keep your resume ready so that if you require it you can do so and dont have to worry about it at that time..As they say its better to be safe than sorry or prevention is better than cure..

    In your resume you should add your personal details along with your educational qualifications and whatever extra-curricular activities or part time jobs you have done in between while doing your engineering course..These extra things matter a lot and make your resume more impressive..Also you can take the jelp of a professional for this as thats certainly very helpful and he would give you more ideas on how to improve your resume and make it more appealing..

    I hope you understand..Good luck

    Hey..
    First of all I am glad that you are looking for an internship because in my opinion it is an integral part of an engineering degree. Yes a resume is needed at the time of applying for internship because a resume is what gives the company an insight into you. Your resume also speaks volumes about your personality and tells the company how a good you will be as a trainee with them.
    In your resume you are expected to mention your achievements during your college life and higher secondary school. This creates a positive impression on the company and tells them what extra things you have done other than the academics. Academics are a part of every students' degree but what distinguishes a bright student is the achievements or the extra curricular activities that he particpates in. It is als necessary to include a skill set that is in sync with the training that you are applying for along with the achievemnts.
    Hence it is advisable to maintain a good percentage in your academics and at the same time participate in extra curricular activities. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! A dull boy is not what companies are looking for. All the best.. Thanks.
