Add-on courses? Voice-over internships in India on the rise.
Instead of working 'summer' jobs, many college students are pursuing internships in career fields, including voice-overs as an initiative by Delhi University colleges to help students gain hands on experience called add-on courses.
â€œInternships are part of our add-on courses like journalism. Students of other short-term courses like advertising and banking also visit advertising agencies and banks to see people in action,â€ said Meera Ramchandran, principal, Gargi College.
â€œThe students may or may not get stipend for these internships but they do get experience in these organisations,â€ she said. â€œMost of our students do summer jobs such as voice-overs and editing.
Well, there you have it!
