Special Guidelines for the Selection of Organization for Internship
Selection of organization is very crucial and cautious step and it requires special attention. So, it is your responsibility to ensure that this internship is relevant to your area of specialization.
Follow the guidelines given below for the selection of an appropriate organization for getting internship:
¨ You can select any bank, chartered accountancy firm, multinational company, manufacturing concern, taxation firm, insurance company, etc. that has proper departments and where you can gain maximum exposure relevant to your area of specialization.
¨ You are NOT allowed to work as a freelancer (online and offline) and in NGOs, franchises, advertising agencies, schools, colleges, universities, software houses, and all those organizations where you cannot learn/gain exposure according to your area of specialization.
¨ Organization must NOT be owned campus or private campus of VU.
¨ In case, the selected organization has proper finance and accounts department and it is willing to accommodate/give internship to you but are hesitant in sharing their annual reports/financial statements with you then you should seek guidance from your Course Instructor by sending the e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org from your VU e-mail account. You will be guided accordingly.
¨ You should try to work in all departments of that organization where you will get the internship. However, remember being a student with majors in Finance, your focus should primarily be on the accounting and finance department (credit/advances and accounts department in case of bank).
¨ Don’t forget to inform your Course incharge about the organization selected for getting internship. You MUST inform your Course Incharge before joining that organization via e-mail at email@example.com from your VU e-mail account.
