With rise in number of graduates passing each year and ever-increasing competition has changed the hiring scenario of corporate sector/industry dramatically. Most employers are reluctant to hire someone who's never worked before and internship provides a solution of it by providing a real work place experience where students get an opportunity to work on live projects.
Internship programs develop students' overall maturity by strengthening resourcefulness, problem-solving skills, self confidence, self-discipline and sense of responsibility.
The JU fraternity undeniably believes that internship not only enhances students' training and allows them to gain skills but it also makes them a better employee by giving them self confidence that is often a prerequisite in the workplace. Also, Students who already have some work experience in the form of an internship stand out to potential employers.
At JECRC Foundation, a meticulously planned road map for internship program is curated under the supervision of Directorate of Internship.

One Semester internship has been inculcated in curriculum for final year students to provide students exposure to industrial work environment and gain real world experiences.

To get the best result out of internship program, Faculty Internship Guides (FIGs) are carefully handpicked and trained by the Directorate of Internship to guide students during their internship journey. Students are assigned Faculty Internship Guide who motivates them to grab the best opportunity.

Throughout the internship drives, prestigious and renowned companies are invited to hire students for internships. These drives provide students a niche to express them in the best way and improve upon their knowledge for getting selected for internship.
To reap full benefits from this mutually agreed upon experience by the students, several milestones have been set in this 24-week journey of internship. During complete internship tenure students are closely monitored and carefully evaluated by their industry supervisor and Faculty Internship Guides. Student's performance feedback is taken by the FIGs supervisor periodically via mail, telephonic communication and personal visit to company premises. At industry end, students work closely under supervision of industry experts. A joint evaluation by Directorate of Internship and external experts is done after successful completion of internship.
