What you can expect from an Internship Developed competences:
This Program totally fits with candidates who wish to:
Low cost of living
Boosted by the arrival of the Metro and empowered by a deep history of international trades (spices, textile, jewelry), Jaipur possesses a very dynamic economical environment as well as a growing entrepreneurial atmosphere. In addition, cinemas, nightclubs and sport facilities can easily be found in the different areas of the city.
Atmosphere in Jaipur differs from big Indian cities such as Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. Even if some signs of modernity appeared with the constructions of big Malls and Business Centers, the historical area of the Pink City seems timeless and totally preserved which allows interns to live a deep cultural experience.
Millions of tourists come every year to visit Jaipur and more and more expatriates settle in the Pink City for employment or business. The city is considered as one of the safest in India and it is quite easy for visitors to enjoy their stay without worrying about any security issue. In addition, the area is not exposed to tropical disease and clinics and other infrastructures are comparable to western ones.
Most frequent accommodation types are either flats shared with roommates or guest houses with common rooms shared with other expatriates and generally an Indian family. These solutions are the friendliest and secured ones and are as close as possible to European standard. They generally include the following services:
Monthly rent varies from 7,000 INR to 9,000 INR for shared room and 12,000 INR to 15,500 INR for single room according to location, size of the room and quality of infrastructure. Electricity charges are usually around 1,500 INR without electricity use. In the summer you need to consider extra fees related to the A/C use. For a normal use of A/C (3 hours per day) the bill is around 3,500 INR. For an intensive use the bill will be higher than 6,000 INR. Food price is very low and restaurants are quite affordable.
* Room types and categories that we can propose depend on availability
* Mentioned rents do not include electricity fees.
Fixed expenses vary according to the country you belong to and your preferences regarding vaccination and insurances. Following elements are to take into consideration as estimation for the budget of your trip:
- Flight to Jaipur (round trip):
- Visa Fees: 120 to 200 €/£/$
- Insurance: 30 to 40 €/£/$ per month
- Package Fees: 445€ / 390£ / 499$
- Vaccines: usually not mandatory (except if you reside in some developping countries) but to check with your doctor or specific clinic
Low cost of life will be one of the most enjoyable aspects of your stay in India. Prices, especially regarding rent, food and transportation are way lower than in any western country. Regarding accommodations, we usually place our candidates is comfortable and A/C equipped accommodations in secured residential areas of Jaipur. Rent for a single room is generally around 12,000 INR and 7,000 INR for a shared room (according to availabilities) per person. Electricity charges can vary from 1,000 INR to 6,000 INR (for an intensive use of A/C in summer) for a room. Food price is very low and restaurants are quite affordable.
Internships in NGOs are unpaid.
Marketing and Business Development Internships can include remuneration (usually between 3,000 INR and 5,000 INR) according to intern’s profile (Level of English, Experience in the Sector, Diplomas, etc...)
We have chosen to implement our programs in Jaipur and Rajasthan for several reasons, including the cultural environment, varieties of associative structures, developing industries… But the main reason behind this choice was to insure to our candidates the safest atmosphere for their project. Millions of visitors come every year to Rajasthan, the most touristic area of India. In addition, contrary to big megalopolis like Delhi or Mumbai, tourism industry plays a crucial role and authorities as local population pay attention to prevent any security risk for visitors to maintain there standards. Rajasthan is moreover known as the most preserved traditional and peaceful area of India. Of course, like in any place in the world, basic security and precaution standards need to be strictly respected in order to avoid conflict or unsecure situation.
You will frequently use 3 wheelers called Auto-Rickshaw (or Tuk-Tuk) for your daily routes. The advantage of this vehicle is on the one hand that you can find them in each main street and on the other hand the cheap cost of transportation. For very short transport, you can use cycle rickshaw which are even cheaper but are quite slow. Another solution is to book taxis for transportation superior to 20 minutes. Metro is also operational but under development.
Students usually come for Internships from 1 to 6 months. We advise those who have the liberty to chose duration to come at least 2 months for Internships in companies in order to have sufficient time for adaptation and to be fully involved in the local working culture.
After 4 to 6 months of stay Students usually express the desire of going back to their home countries even for well integrated Students. Ideal duration is thus 2 to 4 months.
If you are autonomous and you like freedom in your work, if you can adapt to unusual situations and if you like to be involved in several fields, then an Internship in India is totally adapted to your profil. Such an experience is strongly recommended if you have an entrepreneurial spirit.
For those who are looking for developping technical competences in a specific sector as financial analysis, accountability, etc... this experience can be disappointing.
Our partner companies and NGOs usually being medium sized local structures with a strong indian working culture (even if for the big majority of them they already host foreign interns) it is important to know specificities of such an internship and to evaluate adequation with your expectations. If the immersive aspect is not what you are looking for then it might be better for you to target an internship in a big company of bigger cities (Delhi or Mumbai for instance).
You will for sure face some unknown and uncomfortable situations where frustration will arise regarding some aspects of the internship. We usually observe that students who are proactive and outgoing in term of oral communication with internship manager and colleagues maximise professionnal incomes of such an experience while those who have difficulties to handle the situations are more passive and expecting others to make the first move. Oral communication and proactivity are the biggest keys for a successful experience.
An Internship in India within the first 2 years of a Bachelor program allow to quickly face another working culture. It is thus a warranty of openmindedness for the rest of your education program. But be careful to go for such an experience only when you feel ready to face a totally different living environment. If you already visit a developping country or if you feel like an adventurer then it is definitly possible to go for such an experience at the start of your studies.
When you get close to the end of your studies program it is often advised to conduct internships that are related to your upcoming professional integration. If you are targeting entrepreneurship, digital marketing, social sector or a sector that is localy reknowned (like Jewelry, Textile, Tourism) then your internship project in India is totally accurate.
Indian culture strongly differs from western countries. An Internship in India is thus a great way to step back and observe our own culture with sharp eyes and to develop adaptation skills. Still, it is necessary to feel ready to face a different living and working environment, to be patient (especially at the beginning of the internship) and to be proactivE in term of communication in order to maximize outcomes.
