Internships & Their Benefits

You must know that the internship is really quiet important as far as your career is concerned. The internship makes the people feel better while doing their work. This is really a truth and I must tell you that the internship helps in growing all those characteristics which I really feel are important for the job which you will be going to do in the future.

However you must know that what the internship really is. In fact the internship is the period during which you have to work in some company as a trainee. I feel that this is really very important because this makes you know about the market and how to settle in it. It is rightly said that if you will do the internship with seriousness then you will hardly find any difficulty in finding the job afterwards.
I would like to list some of the points which you will definitely make you feel that the internship is really a must.

The points are as follows:

1.The first point which is quiet important is that you need to know that if you get into the wrong career then you will definitely feel the pinch. You will definitely feel that while you are working, you are wasting your time. I must say that it is really a very bad situation if you are doing a job in the field which is definitely not for you. This can really be avoided if you know about the internship. It is really advisable that you should do the internship because it lets you know that what the market is really made of. It is really better to know about the market before you start doing work in it.

2.The second advantage is that the companies really give preference to the fresher who have done the internship. Hence you not only gain the good marks in your college but you also gain the market value. If you will do the internship with care then I must tell you that you will definitely become the favorite of all the companies.

3.The next point which I do feel is quiet important is that you will have to do the internship which I really feel is important on behalf of your college studies. Some marks in almost all the colleges have been allotted to the internship. And I do feel that it is quiet easy to grab full marks as far as the internship is concerned.

Hence I really feel that the internship is one of the things which can really change your faith. For me it is a chance which ever fresher gets to make his career.

What is Precarious Work?

A precarious work is a kind of work which is not properly paid, insecure, unprotected and cannot support the house hold. There has really been a sudden increase in the number of precarious work with the growth of information technology. I really feel that there have been so many jobs which are now floating in the market and cannot be termed as a good work and hence come under the precarious work. You will definitely not be able to earn enough to take the complete burden of your family.

You should note that there are four dimensions which will help you in finding whether the job which you are doing is precarious or not. They are as follows:

1.the first thing which is really important to note is that you will have to make sure that how secure is your employment and what are the chances for it to run for a long period of time. Many of the projects are found to get finished in four or five months and you will then be left in the no mans land.

2.the second thing which I really feel is very important to note is that you will have to check the control over the labor process, and this is linked with the presence or absence of the trade union and professional associations and relates to control over working conditions, wages, and the pace of work.

3.The degree of regulatory protection is also quiet important and you should really check for all this.

4.And last but not the least you will also have to check for the income level.

If you are engaged in some sort of freelancing job then I must tell you that you too are doing a precarious job. However you may skip the income level since some people do earn a lot of money from the freelancing. You can also argue that you can earn more than the simple job through freelancing. But you will have to agree that you are not quiet certain of having the job throughout the year. I really feel that you will be in dilemma all the time as far as the security of your earning is concerned. That is why I have said that the freelancing is too a precarious job.

However you cannot really blame the Information technology for this. I really feel that information technology has done a lot well as far as the job availability is concerned. Even in the recession the most number of jobs are available in the field of information technology.
I do feel that you should not really blame anybody for the precarious jobs. In fact it is really better to have the precarious job rather tan remaining jobless.
