Centre for Counselling and Health Services (CCHS)

Dear Students,

Happiness is

finishing exams!

I’m sure that you all will wholeheartedly agree with this. 


Now is the time to relax and refresh your mind, body and soul by pursuing the hobbies and activities that you like. These vacation breaks allow you to explore your interests and dive into things that you look forward to. This time of the year is essential for your well-being and quality of life. So make sure that you spend it well with family, friends and most importantly, with yourself. 

Quality time spending is of utmost importance! 


Post the vacation will start the internships - a new experience, something that will lay the foundation of your professional career.


So, how to make it a learning and an interesting experience? 


Here are a few quick tips - 

  1. First impressions are very important, as is being consistent in keeping it.. It is important for you to dress, speak, write and behave like a professional right from the start.
  2. Ask questions. You are not expected to know everything from Day 1. But the quicker you learn and adapt, the more fun you’ll have doing the internship!
  3. Focus on your communication skills, both verbal and written. Proofread your emails, reports before sending and while communicating with your senior or colleague, use polite and respectful language. 
  4. Be easy and receptive to work with. Take assignments without complaints. Listen to the instructions carefully and don’t hesitate to clarify your doubts.
  5. Last but not the least, once you receive your Letter of Recommendation, keep in touch with your seniors. This will help them keep you in mind for any future opportunities. 

I’m confident that you all will use these simple tips to make the most of this valuable experience.
